i did it for one race, it worked fine when i pulled the fuse, set the light when i did it, as soon as I plugged it in and reset the computer the light went off. depending on what your racing, you may find that's extremely easy to lock up the brakes (like my brembos). i plugged it back in after one run

as far as autox, you really shouldn't need to disable ABS. i don't think threshold braking is going to do you that much good on such a small course, not to overcome the risk of a lockup

Any one try an on an off switch for the ABS via the fuse? Simply interrupt the power supply at the fule to turn it off then flip a switch to turn it back on? I might do this just to see if it works next winter..

Plus, you don't need to disable ABS to threshold brake.

If you need to disable it you need to work on yoru braking. The only time it is really a hinderance is on a very bumpy course. Otherwise it should have no effect when braking properly.
