>>      Heres an easy one. When would you want to shut off your  ABS or
>>would you.

Let's make it simple. Going down my hill, I turn the last corner and there's
Mr. dooly truck sideways across the ice covered dirt. There's one nice dry
patch to aim the right wheels for, so-as-to lock 'em up where it'll do some
good. Stomp on the pedal, damn pulsing!!! Oh well, get it sideways and
accelerate in through the (thankfully) soft snow bank into the cow pasture!!
No damage, drove out, and Mr. truck driving man only had to clean his newly
brown seat from watching the S4 comin'!!

Ok, how do I wire-up an ABS off switch? Since the ABS-off light comes on when
I lock the rear dif, there must be pre-wired access  to defeat the system.

This month's AAA mag tells you to "stomp and steer" if you have ABS.
