hey guys,
i was just wondering if any of you have removed traction control from an E series falcon and how you went about it. is it easy enough to do a home job or is it a paid job?

cheers for any help

The other way round. No T/C on utes and std on XR6Turbo and XR8, also fairmont Ghia.

Why would you want to remove it anyway?? If you don't like it just switch it off!
