    im looking in to buying a 95 Dx hatch that dose not have abs....im a bit of a fast driver, and with my hopefully 350hp + setup im going to need to be able to stop and steer at the same time.......

    has anyone ever done a ABS swap on a non abs civic...if so is it a huge pain in the ass and not worth it, or was it a reasonable, costefective project...

    huge pain in the ass? :yes:
    worth it? :no:
    cost effective? :no:

    learning propper breaking techniques like trail braking costs nothing and is more effective than letting a computer take over and do the driving for you... especially since hondas ABS is fucking garbage and engages WAYYYY too fucking early

    ABS :thumbsdown:
    propper braking technique :thumbsup:

    TurnFast! Road Racing Resource Center has some good info for improving technique
    the book "Going Faster, mastering the art of race driving" is also a great recource and should be read by everyone
    another idea is to attend some HPDE track days and get some instruction
    google also helps
