    to move it, your going to have to fabricate some lines becauese the existing lines are pretty stiff, so i dont think you can just push it out of the way. Also, the wiring harness for the ABS unit might limit movement. I saw get rid of ABS. Who needs it. In winter, just learn to pump your brakes.

    Get rid of ABS? :slap: Now why would you do that? Indy cars have abs. If it wasnt a good option why would race cars have it? I would agree that you have to get used to it but once you do.... You will definatly get better track times.

    because a good driver that can threshold brake well can outperform ABS on most surfaces, besides the fact that ABS takes the control away from the driver and puts it in the hands of a computer that really has no idea what situation you're in and why you're demanding so much braking power

    There are some good ABS systems, but 98% of honda's systems suck. The only one even halfway worth while is on the Type R which was reprogramed for track use.

    :werd: i saw tests for the WRX and with a good driver threshold braking, the ABS was only able to beat his stopping distance on dry pavement- everywhere else, the driver won-
