ABS cannot be toggled off. I actually don't want that to be taken away as it works very well on my 2001 and I assume that Ford has not taken a step backwards in that regard.
Fundamentally, I only want the brakes applied when I hit the brake pedal.
Just to be clear. The disabling of electronic torque vectoring would cause torque steering which is the numero uno complaint about adding HP to fwd. And you want that?
I agree that it should be your choice but unless an LSD option becomes available for the MK3 I'm quite happy to have the electronics there.
Even the Focus ST even uses electronic torque vectoring in leau of a proper LSD (which is quite stupid on fords part). Open diff's are generally crappy for handling and disabling the electronics on open diff FWD usually results in epicly useless levels of understeer.
Disabling stability and traction control on a rwd or awd is always a more fun. When set my adjustable swaybars to the stiffest setting and lock the electronic center diff on my wrx to 50/50 power bias its always a thrashing good time.
I believe it gives people the idea it would be fun on a fwd lacking LSD. In my personal experience I've found that opinion to be generally wrong.
Regardless, there is no way of knowing if a tuning option for the MK3 would allow for the adjustment or toggling of the traction and stability systems in the focus.
