True I do give tomm.brz mad props for the tune. It's definitely been a challenge but afr and knock are managed and It could probably handle more boost if it weren't for my ring gap holding it back. Not sure how much that matters. So im not extremely worried if the boost hits 2.1 bar for the time being.



In all honesty I expected the trans or an axle to give by now but who knows. Maybe Asin built it stronger than I thought.

but still, difficult to manage when you have any king of leaks or knock triggerint because of frame hitting or worm engine mounts
I worry for oil film as well

i tried to tell Derek he shouldn t floor in sixth gear at low rpm! maybe now he will believe me more :P :P
with a throttle limiter and timing reduction per gear and low boost at high gears it s manabeable to a point, but still...

What do you do on public roads that requires it to be off?

Why not just pull the ABS fuses so all your electronics are off permanently and aren't on by accident?

Definitely contemplate it.
I need it off so that the car only ever does what I tell it so. Keeps things predictable.

Why is it intervening, may be the better question. Why's it intruding on your driving?

Because that's what it does.
Listen, I've got kids that have likely been driving longer than you. If you think you're gonna start into a lecture on how I should drive, save you're breath, son.

Hmm, what's age has to do it (except if as try of personal insult)? And i'm also on line of thought, that if nannies frequently interfere with one's driving on public roads, then most probably one does something wrong, at best risking just himself, in worst case adding risks for others on the road too, and very probably breaking few traffic rules. And worst on top seems suggesting such driving to others, as with your post/question that started this.

It should give an idea of my vintage, in that, I've driven more vehicles that never came with ABS or traction control, than he's likely even seen. They build cars for the lowest common denominator, and studies show 85% of the populace doesn't poses the multitasking abilities to drive a vehicle, but we let them anyway. Hence, traction control, and ABS.

Yet simply by his profession of racing driver he has likely driven on limits and have wast experience regarding such, to actually know something about that. Funny, but his views are also very similar to other acquaintances of mine from motor sport, that public roads are not place to hoon/speed/drive on limits, and they all usually drive much more carefully and safe then said "generic populace".
If ABS interferes often during DD .. probably because one (comfort aside) brakes in way with high risk of getting rear ended. If TC frequently interferes, very possibly one drives over speed limit, faster then traffic flow, or even hoons/drifts. Fines aside, higher risk of own injuries/crash aside .. what others on road have done to deserve higher risks by wish of someone unrelated for more adrenaline but not wishing to do that on track? Car technical capabilities aside, car nannies limitations aside, driver multitasking capabilities aside, simply by nature of DD on public roads there are many uncontrollable variables, road design can be less forgiving/of costlier mistakes, one knows long roads less detailed then track lap lapped many times, in long drives there is less concentration, reactions are duller/slower. That all warrants higher safety margin, with which in turn makes thresholds of most nannies for people on public roads far from being such nuisance to hate.

I didn’t solicit yours, or their views either, yet here you are.
Also, Tl;dr
