Manual Override

Hey, sort of digging this back up from the dead

I was out driving after a snow "storm" we had today and was testing the ESC / TCS. I was playing with lift off oversteer, and was honestly annoyed by the computer trying to jump in and save the day.

I want to rig up a manual override for the systems as I plan on tracking my car in the summer, and don't want the same thing happening. Has anyone actually rigged up a system like this on one of the MK3 foci?

I will most likely install single switch in the cabin that is connected to the F19 terminals with an in-line fuse. I just wanted to see if it has been done before.

PS, I will try to make a "HOW TO" when doing this on my car.
