If the problem comes back or becomes regular, I'll consider doing the pedal dance.
I was a holdout on the pedal dance until I tried it, won't go back.

Pedal dance is not going to fix your ICE mode ABS issue.

Based on my experience, the pedal dance puts my car into ICE mode everytime I try it. With just the regular long hold of traction control, I never hit ice mode.

Interesting, I've only had it go nuts with the 3 second button press. The above poster is having the same thing.

Just to add to the first post, We can also run with no air filter at all if you choose to do so. I see nobody has edited the first post in a while.

SOLO Rules 13.10.A
"The engine air filter element may be removed or replaced provided the air flow path remains as originally designed (i.e., no additional openings)"

Yeah, but did you ever notice how filthy with dust your car gets when pulling your numbers off after an event? If it can get on a freshly waxed car, it can get in your intake.

In other words: Legal and smart aren't always the same thing.

I've known a few attorneys who proved that...

It wouldn't hurt to include alignment, tires and wheels in the mix, either.

There's no point in repeating each others' mistakes, right?
I just bought myself a Cusco front 20mm sway bar, because I got a great deal on it. How do you like it?

And yes I'll be buying a matching 16mm for the back too.

I don't know if Des still posts here. He's moved onto a Fiesta ST. I've driven his car with the Cusco before and the car felt really good.

Has anyone shared alignment settings with the TRD setup yet?

I managed 2 deg camber both sides in front, 1.9 deg camber both in rear.

Front toe out .05 each side, rear toe in .08 each side.

I've got Koni's, crash bolts and a whiteline front sway (on soft). I've only run one event on a lot I hate. I think I might move to the stiffer setting on the whiteline for the next event... I felt like there was too much oversteer for me with my current setup.

It might be the extra camber I was able to get in this last alignment causing this though and not the springs.

Let me guess, you have the full replacement shocks and not the inserts. So who is going to be the first to say the full replacements are not legal cause their mounting location are clearly off lol

With trd sway bars, trd springs, koni shocks and oem crash bolts my camber is -2.1 up front and -1.8 in the rear. Wasn't able to get this much camber up front when the car was oem.
