Put semi slicks on it and become a cornering demon, make sure the suspension is also up to task. Carrying mid corner speed round city back streets it a blast, especially in a little thrasher.

But, no, there are bugger all sensors on those things to begin with, unplugging any will just put it into dog mode and make it worse.
