hit it once and it disables the TCS, push and hold for longer than 5 sec and it turns off completly but will turn back on after 35 mph I think. The icon will flash then go solid when it is off.

no way to fully turn it off, its still working even when it flashes, it just turns back on when you go over 35mph, also if you induce too much sway it will still kick on under 35mph. Its not a huge problem but its anoying. Short answer is get a tune from JDM they can disable it.

you can pull the fuse, but if you have 4wd and a locker, it'll disable the 4wd and locker too

but yeah in general, exactly what RES4CUE said
