If there were Tacomas wildly veering into oncoming traffic every time they cornered on wet cement or ice I can't imagine there wouldn't be a recall?
I've read about it before...something about calibration? Not sure.

This is what I did.

Oh, beware, you'll have some future post here that will tell you that you drove "too fast". Or, saying that without ABS, you'll have same effect. Be prepared.

Keep in mind that with this done and you have a wreck then the insurance might not pay if they find out. At least I've seen people on TW say this and it does make sense.

ABS killswitch FTW! It disabled ABS, vsc, and trac.. it tricks the 4wd ECU into thinking the locker is locked (cuz when you lock the rear, it knows your "off-road" and switches all that stuff off. I did it (mainly because I myself hated vsc and trac) and its the greatest mod ever. no more loss of power when turning right, wheeling, etc. Super easy too. Doooo it... Lol

Yeah... Probably the sharper turn, or angle of the driveway or something. I'd pull out from my complex, and sometimes it would think I was spinning out or somethin. Idk.. hated it. Would kill my power in the middle of the lane. lol

Hmmm.. that's a good point. The already leaning Taco, when leaning more in that direction, sets off vsc. Lol.

It thinks its gonna roll over.. HA!.... stupid Taco...

no, not sure why i would. it only went around say 20-35 degrees, not a full 180. There wasn't a lot of traffic and i was only going 25-35 mph. i'm fairly calm and collected in most situations. I was a bit surprised but that's about it

A light comes on the dash when you have VSC kick in, watch for it. I had issues after lift too but had dealer recalibrate. no issues anymore .

ABS is sound. Is everyone saying they would rather have their tyres lock up in slippery conditions? You lose all control then.

ABS has proven itself enough in 4 wheel vehicles that it is being adopted by manufacturers of two wheel vehicles to avoid the dumping of bikes!

PS If you get into an accident and end up killing someone and the cause of the accident is found to be braking conditions, good fuckin luck man. Your disabling safety systems that is IMO similar to removing seatbelts, airbags and safe tires.
Call your insurance company and anonymously ask that hypothetical question.
