How do I disable the esc (electronic stability control)

Winter has come around here in Illinois and along with that comes drifting. But to my dismay I found that you can turn traction control off but not the esc. So because of this you can't pull off those sexy drifts. Is there any way I can disable this emasculating feature? I know there isn't a button to turn it off but does anyone know of what fuse it uses and if you can just pull the fuse or such?

On a guess you'd have to disable ABS completely to accomplish that as it's integrated into the ABS system.

oh okay thanks. yeah I removed the abs fuse and that turned them all off, but unless I'm drifting I want to have abs because it was scary driving on snowy roads without abs. So now I'm just going to have to remove that fuse every time I want to go drifting I guess haha.

You're not drifting in a FWD car... you're sliding (possibly with, or without style).
