    Default I can probably guess the answer...

    But let me ask y'all anyway.

    According to the Helms service manual, the ABS has:
    A fuse located in the main fuse panel, labeled BRAKE, provides protection for the main power feed circuit of the ABS electrical system.
    However, there is a caveat...
    NOTE: The GAUGE fuse is also tied into the main power feed to the ABS.
    Now, when I use my roll control for holding the car while doing tire warmups and I pull the fuse to prevent the ABS from kicking in, will I lose my electrical gauges as well? I'm not concerned with the oil pressure, oil temperature, or coolant temperature because they're mechanical, but I do still have a few electrical gauges such as fuel pressure and level, as well as voltage of course.

    Reason for concern, or just worryin' needlessly?

    Let me se if I can help.

    I have a roll control as well, it is connected right off the mastercylinder and then sent to the front brakes.

    When I set my line lock and then heat the tires, the ABS does not kick on because your foot is no longer depressing thr brake. I have had no problems and I don't pull any fuses
