This Deathmachines.net interview offers a really cool insight to how my buddy Will Roegge got into shooting and editing some of the most visually stunning automotive content EVER. This video also has a sneak peek at the 2010 Medium Monster reel… to which I spied some footage from the DMGGMASD events!
The electronic complexity that lies beneath my car’s tattered metal has plagued and taunted me since I started drifting it. After a bigger headache than I ever thought possible with this car, I was FINALLY able to completely, 110% without a doubt disable the ABS/DSC without throwing the car into limp-mode. BUT HOW?!I pulled one teeny tiny li’l wheel speed sensor from the rear of the car. That’s it. I’ve been told that pulling all four sensors works on E36 cars, but the E46 models have a stricter set of electronics, so when the car doesn’t get a speed reading, it declares that as a problem worthy of limp-mode. I encountered the same issue when I pulled both of the rear sensors (leaving the fronts). The trick here, is to only pull one. That way the car still pulls a reading from the other side, and just registers the pulled sensor as a fault… keeping the car revving like a champ.I did hours and hours of research on this subject, and found many people asking how to fully disable ABS/DSC, but never got a straight answer on how to do it. People seemed more content ridiculing those asking the question than pondering a useful solution. Hopefully this trick will help those that need to disable it, but keep in mind – I am not liable for any action taken based on this post. I needed to do this for my track car, and I would not recommend this for ANY street car. In fact, if I could have kept ABS functioning, and still keep use of my hydraulic e-brake, I would have done so. ABS has saved my ass quite a few times – even on the track.This effectively closes the chapter on my lengthy saga on this subject. I can now use my hydraulic e-brake free and clear of limp-mode. The e-brake works AMAZING. It will take some acclimation to driving without ABS, but I’m sure I will get used to it. One thing is for sure… I can’t wait to use this e-brake at Road Atlanta in the spring!
