that is ALWAYS ON , unless the ABS fuse is pulled.

so unless im missing something on how to turn off the system that transfers torque/power side to side when one wheel is spinning and the other is not....then when VDC (being traction control and stability control

consider this, when having fun in snow storms with stability and traction control off , how is it that all 4 wheels are spinning? no matter what situation im in? its because its transfering power from wheel to wheel, even with TC and SC OFF ..... without that system because of the open differentials, donuts would not be possible. and we all know thats not the case with 08+
Nope, on the WRX, if the button is selected and the light comes on, that means no traction or stability control and no independent application of braking via ABS. However, standard ABS will still work.
