One of the issues currently holding me back with the V6 is the Bosch abs system which came stock. It was not designed/programmed by Lotus for use with slicks but rather R-compounds. As a result, the abs is too intrusive and I can not fully exploit the excellent brakes on the car.
I have spoken to several Lotus owners in the UK who have installed the Pilbeam pedal box . All seem to be happy with it [although dealing with Pilbeam is not without its problems] and use it mostly for wet weather conditions.
A couple were surprised at how close they still had to get the MC size before the pedal box became effective ...suggesting that the tuning range is not that great.
Ex Factory your car will be well sorted with regards to MC / rotor / caliper size so the pedal box would work well and give you the ability to fine tune ...but the question is will the ABS override any setting you make .
If you did away with ABS as many race cars do , then suggest the Pilbeam box would be a welcome addition.
If you go with the Bosch M4 I suggest that it will fix your problem and the pedal box will not be required. Plus you will get even better breaking with no chance of locking up and damaging expensive tyres !!
Obviously a more expensive option , but from what I have heard / experienced well worth the price of admission.
If you still feel like you need some adjustment fit a proportioning valve : https://www.apracing.com/products/ra...ng_valves.aspx
Keep in mind pedal box and P/Valve do different things ..
If I recall correctly you will have the correct wheel sensors and plugs in place to run the M4 . As your OEM ABS is Bosch I am fairly certain that the M4 will plug in directly . This will be very helpful during the install and cheaper as you will not require new hubs [sensors inside ] leads / connectors etc
Before purchase I got a lot of info from Track Club in the UK [ part owned by Elise Parts ]
Track Group ? road, track, race and powertrain specialists
They have fitted a number of kits to 2-11s / Exige 2ZZ and V6 etc .
