It's certainly possible, but it wouldn't be easy. You'd have to basically reroute the rigid brake lines directly from the master cylinder to the calipers. They normally go from the master cylinder to the ABS module then to the calipers.

If you're seriously considering doing this, I would yank the ABS fuse first and get a feel for what it'll be like to threshhold brake without any ABS/EBD/CBC. If you're cool with it, and you don't think you'll lock them up in a panic stop, go for it. I know the front-to-rear bias was developed with ABS/EBD/CBC in mind though, so that may be affected. While you're in there, you might as well throw in a brake bias control.

I leave mine on all the time (I haven't autox'd yet). It's saved my tail several times. My buddy Uncle can vouch for that one (I still owe you a hat, bro!). It's definitely worth losing a few fun moments to save the car.

Mine is off about 99% unless it is pouring rain, then I turn it.

I never use it at the track, it pulls power to easilly. I do however use it at the Dragon...

I turn mine off on most jaunts. I know where the edge is and I stick within my cars boundries. In rain I especially leave it off unless I'm going through turns and stuff. I don't like to accidently spin at a light and bog. If it's heavy rain I'll turn it back on.

I have that auto-off deal. I forget to turn it on in bad weather! But I always say if you need it on then you can't drive!
