I have not considered a new pedal set, but am considering removal of the ABS. Please let me know how removal goes.

Thanks

I put a Tilton pedal assembly in another car (Westfield Eleven) as part of my program to get more leg room. It worked great. If you get one with dual brake cylinders you can have remotely (in the cockpit) adjustable brake balance F/R.

I pulled my ABS fuse after almost rearending a car due to the crappy(dangerous) stock ABS system.

ABS is good for low-friction situations, but even a semi-skilled driver can outperform it on dry asphalt. I don't plan to ever drive in the rain or snow, so have no qualms with taking it out.

Plumbing directly to the master-cylinder should be simple. Assume some form of proportioning valve is already on the car, but haven't looked; an adjustible one would be fun to experiment with.

Interested to hear if anyone has done the removal and non-ABS set up.

watch andy walsh 'no limits' who's a driving instructor and all round excellent driver, who races elises and caterhams, he demonstrates the use of no abs, abs , and modulating the abs.

i believe brent has done an abs delete on his car
