The first big bunch of parts have been ordered for Phase 3:Fuuuuuu
Now I'm in part sourcing hell - trying to decide if new stock parts can be found, reconstructed, or if aftermarket will be less expensive.
Ordered a GoPro Hero 4 silver used from e-bay to save some bank
Bastard 20G components are on their way back from Justin
Motor mounts drop shipped to John...
Trying to figure out if I should delete the ABS system, or locate after market sensors cheaper than $250 each. Opinions about ABS in the Eclipse?? - It worked good for the snow, - not sure about the track. Maybe if it was working well I would not be so annoyed by it....
Thoughts? - Aaaaaaand - go!
I tend to agree, but Its a silly thing to have wheel speed sensors $250 each. This car is now a garage queen. I have more efficient rides to work, so its a weekend/track day toy now I suppose.I would never in my life choose no ABS. It can absolutely save your life, or at least your car, in even what you might think are mild weather conditions. I find the OEM Nippon Denso system on my 99 gsx invaluable for saving my tires from flat spotting in dry conditions. Could it be better? Sure, next step would be an $8k BMW MK60 ABS system, but that's pretty pricey (I haven't even done it... yet).
