tune TOTALLY kills traction control?

just wondering, heard a couple different things about this. can the traction control be completely disabled with only a tune? or does it only disable it for the most part EXCEPT for like the abs kicking in a bit? do i NEED to remove fuse 46 to 100% disable traction when i have it disabled with the tune or am i good with ONLY the tune? thanks!

I can turn off the TC in about 90% of the SVT`s i do , yours being a 03 there is a very good chance i can turn it off in a tune

If i can turn it off it will be 100% off and you will have the ability to turn it on and off with the TC switch

Its wierd though because when you hit the TC switch and the dash light comes on, the TC is actually off.
