For fear of blowing something up, this is not something that I would do either, Id wait till the ECU is cracked.I know this is an older thread, but having checked out the original post, coming from an automotive electrical/audio background, I need to say that install makes me cringe. So much wrong with that rats nest of poor quality electrical work.
Did you really use wire nuts under the hood of a car? Ground by stuffing a connector under a painted fender with a painted bolt? Just jumble all the crap in a heap inside the fuse box and chop a hole in the side for the wires? I mean, good for finding a neat mod, but very poor, dangerous, and improper execution of electrical work.
I have no issue spinning the tires with ESC off, learning to balance the throttle in the power band helps if you want no assistance.
I cant see this being any benefit at the track as with no traction control on for me, I was spinning like crazy. I only have the Intake and catback exhaust, but it woke the car up big time.
Im more interested in this new paddle shift mod now, which make way more sense than this ESC switch mod.
