Are you sure you have it? If so.. you can unplug the ABS/Traction control unit (a lartge plug underneath the airbox)

Can also unplug the wheel speed sensors.....and disabling the traction control is gonna let the tires spin like ************* when ever you mash the gas.

Just curious... why do you want to disable your TC and ABS?
This is not a good idea... unless you're at a race track and preparing for the 1/4.

BTW.... all the info you seek can be found by using the magic "SEARCH" button in the top right.
