Hi, just seen this post and I'm intrigued. This is the first I have heard on this topic. what will switching the yellow ABS wire do? does it completley turn off the ABS? If you do this will you get the ABS warning light on the dash or will this also stop the ABS light coming on? Sorry for my lack knowledge
When you're doing spirited driving in the dry, the ABS computer will occasionally enter "ice" mode and go off at light pedal pressures, effectively disabling the brakes. This happened to me 4 times when I was on the Bedford Autodrome track, until I pulled the sensor connector at the front wheel when I nearly plowed into the back of a MX-5.
Simply pulling the fuse will disable other important safety features (IIRC, the speedometer & the dynamic brake proportioning), so the best way is to cut the yellow wire which will disable just the ABS. It will show the ABS light in the dashboard, which, I believe, is a MoT failure, so need the switch back on for driving in the rain or for the MoT.
A better solution would be to get an ABS unit from the VXR200 or Exige (or Evora? I might be wrong) which is a simple, straight swap that don't touch the hydraulics at all and don't have this brake disabling "feature", but it costs about £500.
