    I had it.
    No longer.

    Not really worth it. I always felt in more control with it off.

    Moser 9" without TCS or ABS.

    Should be able to remove the wheel speed sensors...but would probably kill ABS and TCS.
    I have the TCS and ABS lights on at all times.

    I assume the one that makes the switch work backwards?
    Never looked into that. Regular driving I didn't ever bother with it.
    I did forget it racing once. I looked like an idiot trying to warm the tires.

    tcs module...

    I just bought one of those SLP tcs "reversal modules" off of ebay, it is sitting on my desk, the only reason it is not installed is the instructions say disconnect the battery to install.....normally I would just think this is a safety feature but later in the instructions it mentions how long the car needs to run after install for the ecu to learn this new feature so I suppose not...I hate that feature on my car most of all, useless unless you live in the snowey tundra I suppose?

    I grew up in WI with feet of snow.. and learned to FEEL the road.. I don't want a damn computer to tell me what the conditions are and fight me the whole way...

    How long does it say the computer will need to learn it?

    Word for word...
    "Start the vehicle and let idle for 5 minutes. This will initialize the TCS reversal module. Do NOT use the manual TCS switch during the first 5 minutes of operation. Turn off vehicle leaving key in OFF position for 10 seconds. The TCS reversal module will now be ready for operation"

    Why the F$%# would you even want TCS? If I had a dime for all the times that damn system screwed me over I would probably have a bunch of mods I don't have right now. I always turn it off now as soon as the car starts.
