    is it true can you just remove the abs fuse to make burnouts in Vt's Vx's etc. easier, bigger and better. also i was told that you only go back to standard breaking with the fuse removed and to get abs back on just put the fuse back in and she'ss all back to normal.... is it really that easy?

    sorry if it's a silly question but i don't understand how taking a fuse out will alow me to rip bigger.

    It wont make any difference, bar likely to register a fault.

    ABS stops the brakes from locking it doesn't stop the wheels from breaking traction.

    removing the ABS fuse kills ABS and trac control, trac control can be overidden anyway with a push of a button, so whats the point?

    Don't go disconnecting anything for the sake of a burnout!.Utterly rediculous.

    no trac button, the point is i must be the only person in the world who has a V8 and it struggles (didn't say it doesn't, but it's an effort) to rip a skid, once the road gets the smallest bit damp it will bake and bake and i can almost go about 170m with both wheels goin off but soon as it hits dry bitumen it's got nothing but traction?! and thats when my mate said to remove the abs fuse to make it easier.

    mind you though the fords i have had never took more then 2sec for smoke to be rising up near the window, v8 calais takes alot more effort.
    i even had a toyota corolla smoke the front wheels easier then smokin the rear wheels in my calais. weird.:(

    If your going to stress your entire vehicle by bagging it (up to) 170m in the wet,and then worry about why it won't do it when you hit dry tar,well,in due time you will wreck something.If you think it might be worth disconnecting fuses to see a bit more smoke,then go for your life!

    Like Ludacris said ABS and traction control are 2 seperate systems.
    ABS is for braking, Traction is for accelerating...

    In most cases of commdores that i have come across that have traction control it can be turned off...
    I got a lil button near my stearing wheel....

    The idea of taking the ABS fuse is stupid for 2 reasons:
    1. Its a safety feature of the car, its like your airbag, if u crash and they find the fuse is missing ur abit screwed.
    2. ABS has nothing do to with burnouts unless ur doing a burnout on ur brakes in which case ur a nob.

    On the other hand taking out the traction control fuse is also stupid, and pointless since the only point you have for doing this is so u can do burnouts.

    If you can't do burnouts, deal with it, you'll live....
    If you can't do burnouts in a 195i car.... deal with it, obviously u really don't know what ur doin and should have a car that powerful...

    If your doing burnouts at the Summernats comp then non of the above applies...

    Cheers

    Well like some people have experienced, but airbags arnt always good, what we can do is a small experiment, ill drive past you while mi mate hangs out the window and slogs you with a pillow at 50Km/h while you stand still, That is what ive heard a airbag fills like, plus the impact of the Pole, tree, car, boat whatever

    agreed and agreed, however, when you pull the ABS fuse, it will also kill trac control :)

    If you get hit with a pillow at 50 km/h you will survive.

    I can say now that an airbag is great. If you are seated in the correct position/distance the airbag works perfectly. It is the people who sit with their knees against the dash and their chinr esting ont he wheel that get hurt. Had a friends car not had passenger airbags i may have looked liked a half chewed twisty now. Sorry but i will keep that safety aspect in my car :)

    Why would an 11 month old child be in the front seat?

    Even with side curtain air bags the baby capsule/seat shields them from this. As do rear seat airbags, which i dont think holdens have yet?
