marcinr, very cool, I'm always impressed with how much knowledge there is on this site!
So is the ABS module like a mini computer that only handles brake/wheel sensor input? Is it something that could be easily switched from one car to another? Or are they really just all exactly the same from car to car so it wouldn't make sense to even bother, and maybe I just haven't had the identical situations in my 'S as in my Elise?
Not being a coder I am lost as to how this all works, but I definitely get that there is a lot of black magic that goes into it. These dynamic stability control systems where the inner front wheel is progressively braked to help turn-in when understeer is detected, etc. -very cool and interesting stuff. Magnetic ride height systems, progressive lowering of ride height at speed, etc. I can only imagine the arrays of sensors needed to communicate and safely react to any possible situation, with lots of testing involved, but still on a budget. Except in formula 1, haha. Though there, even though all of this has been outlawed, even more complicated code must be needed for managing the ERS, KERS, braking, diff controls (corner entry, mid corner, corner exit), hundreds of sensors, etc. Wow!
And agreed about the Lotus ABS, it is really good if you don't hit ICE mode. I have super crappy ABS in my pickup, always locking rears and making the front useless. I think it must be set for a fully loaded truck (makes sense because with more weight you'd need it more) but still no fun when you don't want it and the truck is empty.
So the Lotus is great deep into a corner, even on stock brakes and R888's
