spend yuh morney and sort out your ABS . "Is either you want to be competitive or not" seems to be the direction here. :lol: :lol:
That's how you could be certain it's more driver than car. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Dave, learn to modulate your brakes. I've never made lack of ABS an issue, and you won't see me locking up anywhere. And as per Pete's comment, with the mini, I only engage ABS in the finish box
Karl, run de Initial D 'human ABS' clip if you will, my good man

I know what I need to do but if things were being considered, hell why not factor in ABS or lack there off.
You guys can't begin to imagine non ABS on Brembos and how easy it is to lock up the tyres. Level pedal modulation going down lol.

Dave, I see your point eh, but as I said before, where do you draw the line?
By that argument, every class should have a sub-class for CVT equipped cars too
My Cooper will NEVER be able to keep up with Anthony's auto SSS, for less for a manual car............so what, cry foul and ask for a penalty to even the odds? I drive what I choose to drive....I can't expect the rules to bend around the shortcomings of my car
If you want get past the lock-up with super-duper brakes, disconnect the vacuum assist :-p

And my fallback will always be Karl Winchester
If he could do what he did with that dead AD Wagon (and Karl will not argue with me there), then nobody can ever underestimate the difference of a good driver............Karl's car barely qualified as an HS car...it was probably a GS car but he chose to run in a higher class............and what happened?
over to you, Karl :-p

I am not fighting a technicality, just going on Devi's recommendation to mention. If you consider all factors, the rules would always be changing and we would be spending more time behind the tables and less behind the wheel.
When I come with tar on the tyres, doh say nuthin lol
Good discussion guys.

BTW. ABS doh work on gravel! I can attest to that! So you have to pick and choose where you can rely on it. Usually the finish box is clean but depending g on the course it is a risk to rely on it coming in hot into a corner. Trust me I've tried [FLUSHED FACE]
