Quote from: Petrus on November 15, 2023, 20:40Power steering delete is a doddle.About the ABS delete I had concerns about the front rear balance but diving deep into the info found it has no bias provision. Any brake bias the ZZW30 has is in the disc diameter/calipers/weight distribution.With the Prius calipers fitted up front, retaining the ABS may be useful.

Quote from: Slowpoke on November 15, 2023, 23:16good advice, that reminds me that techno pro spirit added a super simple brake balancer to their car to remedy this
Quote from: Petrus on November 16, 2023, 02:37it is very, véry tricky to set up a manual bias valve and then it is either a compromise or you need a diffeifferent setting for different circumstances.Because there is a front/rear split in the ABS, it does it nicely for you no hassle.
Quote from: Slowpoke on November 20, 2023, 12:09In that case it seems smarter to leave the ABS system and focus on weight saving in other places.My wallet is terrified at the thought of carbon doors and panels but my god would it be nice.That's the tricky stuff anyways - everything else is just removing things or getting the angle grinder out. Free performance at it's finest (and the bragging rights to call it a proper race car).
Quote from: Alex Knight on November 20, 2023, 15:46I absolutely would NOT want to be T-Boned in a car with carbon doors and no side impact protection.
Quote from: Petrus on November 20, 2023, 15:54I would not want to be T-boned by a modern lardy in any MR cabrio. I a modern two ton plus barges into you a 40mm diameter rod in the door is token only.
Quote from: Slowpoke on December 3, 2023, 19:35it really surprised me how predictable and controllable the car was. I must admit it was brilliant fun and weirdly confidence inspiring.
Quote from: SuperArt on December 4, 2023, 13:53@inigopete if you're around Essex there's a proper skid pan run by ex met police driving instructors.I wouldn't purposely swing my car around in any other setting/venue. Don't want bin my car or attract the wrong attention.
Quote from: inigopete on December 4, 2023, 15:51I grew up in Essex, my dad was a police-trained driver, so I'm familiar with that skid pan. It's awesome. I remember, while I was learning to drive, my dad taking me to an icy supermarket car park on a Sunday - when supermarkets were closed on Sundays! - to learn how the car lost grip and how to steer into / out of skids. It was invaluable, and why I'd like to have a bit of a play with the MR2. Of course, it was also a chance for him to show off his skills J-turning and doing other evasive manoeuvres without destroying his tyres.
