LOL Todd you copied/pasted text from outside the forum.

RedEyes turn of your Traction control off and pull one wheel speed sensor plug from behind either front tire. Dont try to judge wheel spin by RPM, rather get used to the sweet spot where your tires just chirp then firmly go into a WOT. If your have the trunk accessory inflater, turn it on a couple minutes before you go. This will raise the rear a little and put some extra weight on the front for traction.

Here'* what happens when you simply floor it.



And this one here I feathered it. I kind of went a little light off the line and could have done better. But listen to the tires. They are just chirping.

it would prevent the ABS/traction control from working at all,

which is good because even if you turn off the traction control, it still is preventing you from an all out tire burn

Removing the WSS will disable the traction control. So your PCM wont mess with the power.

Venom, that switch only turns on the pump for inflating the tires and the ELC. I wired in a override in my car to inflate my struts jacking up the back end. This will prevent the back of the car sitting back under load.
