Where did you get the ASR defeat switch?

I've been looking for a way to turn this off.<br>I hate when it starts to brake and stop me <br>from having some fun. =(<p>Thanks.<p>GeraldAMG<br>98 C43 with C1,K2<br>Eibach Springs<br>Bilstein Shocks<br>ASR and ESP <----out please<p>: I think that this site is what many C36/43 owners have been waiting for so lets spread the word and get a good base of users so we can make a run of it! <p>Also, as a way to start things off, list your car and any mods....this may not only help soemone find a source for a hard to find part but will give others ideas. <p>Best Regards, <p>Carl Jerritts<br>'96 US Spec C36 White<br>Euro Headlights/Side Markers<br>S600 Look Grill<br>SS Brake Lines/ATE Fluid/Pagid Pads<br>Euro Springs<br>Waiting for 3.27 ratio rear diff with limited slip and ASR defeat for some real fun!<p>

How's the handling of your c36?

Re: How's the handling of your c36?

I honestly can't say as I haven't picked the car up from the shop yet! If you email me in a week, I can give you a full report. Also, I noticed that Gerald who posted below has a similar package so you may want to ask him too. <p>

Thanks Carl Thanks for the info. Where is the ASR switch ? more

I see the ESP switch but no ASR. Even when I turn<br>the ESP off, it's not fully off. It still brakes<br>the wheel a bit. $3,500 seems pretty high. Does <br>this come with installation ? If ever, I think<br>I'll get the Defeat from brabus but not the <br>LSD.<p>Gerald<br>: : I've been looking for a way to turn this off.<br>I hate when it starts to brake and stop me <br>from having some fun. =(<p>Thanks.<p>GeraldAMG<br>98 C43 with C1,K2<br>Eibach Springs<br>Bilstein Shocks<br>ASR and ESP <----out please<p>: <p>Gerald, <p>I think what you are referring to is the ABD(Automatic Brake Differential in Porsche terms).

With the ESP or ASR(on earlier cars) defeated, the brakes will still be activated to control wheelspin. THe switch is in the same place in the 43 and 36 to the best of my knowledge. The Brabus switch which shuts the braking differential down is about $1000 which is expensive and it takes about 3 hours to install. <p>The limited slip rear differential with the lower gear ratios is $3500 for the entire unit and intallation takes about 4 hours if it's anything like a BMW. The ASR defeat for this setup is free as you disable the whole system since you will never need it with the limited slip differential provided that you no a little about performance driving and self control! :)<p>

Re: The Answer!

One more thing....The ASR defeat switch is more than just a switch......it is a switch, harness and a little control module the mounts behind the dash and wires into the ASR system. Not that this justifies the $1000 cost but may explain a portion of it.

I saw him do a burnout in front of me in a parking lot both tires!! fyi thanks spr

Does mine have a lsd? thanks spr
