Default rear 02 disable?

Has any one here found a way to dissable the rear o2 sensors via adaptronic? Just something that crossed my mind since mine are no longer functioning, I'm not sure if there is a way to just disable it. I know the front o2's are absolutely needed. Would completly deleting the rear o2's make the car run sluggish? Also if anything are there any o2 sensor simulators out there for this car? I've seen people make one their selves, but I heard that the diy o2 sims go out after about a month or so.

I unplugged my rear OEM o2 and took it off. Had it like this since the summer. No issues other than an annoying CEL. It's just used to tell you if your cat is working.

would leaving the rear 02 out mess with my wide band readings?. Im not sure if not having it in will mess with the LC-1 or adaptronic units.

I don't see how it would.

It 's not going to affect the function of the LC1. Assuming you cap the bung to avoid an exhaust leak, the only difference will be that the stock ecu will keep throwing a code.
