This does have a dangerous side to it but it has proven itself time and time again. The only time you can run into trouble is if the car has traction control. The best way around this is to remove the abs sensor from the hub. If it can't get a reading there won't be a fault.

Hope this helps a little.
Thanks for the interesting suggestion

Sounds a bit dangerous to me so I'm not sure I would attempt it personally
