Ok iv seen a few photos of peoples setups that have done it. Now my question is how did you keep it from throwing codes and acting up?

Why would you want to remove ABS?

Is this a real race car now or something with no interior and a cage?

Sounds like a stupid idea to me.

One thing to consider if you ever goto sell or trade that car in you will take a beating for removing ABS. It may look cool and clean up the engine bay, i did this on a 4th gen camaro i said i will never get rid of which i did for the 5th gen and took that beating on value, just something to consider.

I thinking about doing the same thing. Does anyone know if it would affect braking in any way.

Yes, if you are caught in rain, snow, on dirt, sand or ice the tires will potentially lock up and you may push off the road like a 1970 Buick Estate Wagon.

Other than that the brakes will be just fine!

Do you have pictures of people deleting ABS. I'm not sure exactly how to do it. Thanks

Why? Take out the seatbelts and airbags too. Maybe put non tempered glass in too! Heck remove all the high strength steel while ur at it.

ABS has way more advantages for a normal car than disadvantages. I see people flat spot tires all the time in non-abs cars, it makes me happy to have ABS so I don't accidentally do that.

It certainly can. Most times it's good to have (though there actually is at least one situation where it might not be). Keep in mind that it's only going to be the more urgent situations where ABS will actually do anything. And at autocross, having it will be better than flatspotting $300 and up tires.

You still haven't explained why you want to do this. If you have a technical basis I might consider making a few suggestions, but if it's just another appearance/'I don't like the way it looks with the hood up' kind of thing I won't waste any more time even thinking about this.

But why do you want to remove the ABS? Disabling it won't save any weight. Removing it will cost a load of time to bend new lines and save about 3 lbs. Take a good dump before you get in the car to save the same weight.

Now that we know why he wants to do this, he probably has good reason. I'm guessing that part of the plan involves front and rear tires of sufficiently different diameter to give the ABS fits as he brakes after the traps. The ABS can and has considered a more quickly decelerating little tire to be about to lock up and will release pressure to it, or them in this case.

I may PM him a suggestion, and I hope that I don't see anybody post the same thing publicly. This includes you, sick13ss1le.

Look at the sticky thread called Project Cleaning Clutter in our engine bay. There are a few guy's who have relocated the abs module for a much cleaner look.

Norm,

Without a cage and full restraints I wouldn't disable the abs. ABS could be the difference between a brush with the guard rail or wall on a run gone wrong.

I have no idea how I survived driving cars before ABS came along! This is quite humorous.

I raced cars with drum brakes and bias ply tires when that was state of the art. That was then this is now. Removing safety equipment without adding appropriate equipment isn't a joke. It does more than change the risk of the ownr driver it endangers other drivers.

I know, safety equipment is great, I'm all for it. And I'm not endorsing its removal. I'm just pointing out there once was a time when we all managed without it. I don't think the scorched earth view is really necessary. Therefore I view it as comical.
