MK6 Golf R ESP/ESC Defeat

Background Information

ESPThe United States version of the MK6 Golf R comes from the factory without the ability to disable traction control. Clicking the traction control button only disables the ASR (Anti-Slip) feature, but holding the button does not disable the ESP/ESC (Stability Control) like all of the other Golf Rs around the world. Disabling this feature is necessary to professionally drive a Golf R around a professional road course.

This tutorial will give you the ability to have full control over your ESP/ESC system.

Required hardware: Vag-Com cable and laptop with the latest version of vag-com.
