Kill Switch!!!! :d

hello guys!

so, i have my TCS kill switch in, on a 2004 SVT.
it works like a charm!!!!!!!!!!

important, if it is switched back on, it takes 5-7sec until TCS, ABS and all are back in,and that's great!!!!

so... my oppinion: DO IT ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ooops... i forgot to mention ... a kill switch for the ESP :D
i read all around about it and thought we all mean the same when we say kill switch.
i mesured the time... only 4secs until all is back like before! with: ABS, ESP, Brake bias and all!!!!
so, just flip it down, start and flip it back until 3-rd gear!

well... ESP or TCS same thing.
it's the one that's not "killable" from the factory button :(

i posted because no one knew how fast the ABS and brake bias goes back in.
WELL it's only 4sec.

and i consider the mod quite safe!!!

kewl, thanks

ESP is not TCS

ESP = Electronic Stability Program
TCS = Traction Control System
