SCCA class rules, some allow ABS, some don't.

I'm not a big fan of ABS for competition events, it's a great feature on the road for emergency manouvers or unexpected road conditions, but it has only marginal benefits on track.

Even if I were running a class that allowed it, I'd rather ditch the 10 lbs by removing the pump/valve block.

As for the pedal adjustment, there is no simple adjustment. and it's not just the pedal height that's a problem, it's the total distance of travel.

If I adjust it to have the depressed position higher, then it's at rest location would be that much higher too...

I've already lowered the throttle pedal a bit by adjusting the cable mounting, but if I have to correct the brake pedal, it will be a bit more complicated.

If I don't get any better ideas on this post, I'll probably try modifyng the pivot points on the pedal to move the attachment point for the pedal rod that actuates the booster/master cyl.

Anyone have an extra brake pedal floating around?
