*ahem* that was literally Aidan's third or 4th lap in that car, having never driven it before. Stock MSM with intake and intercooler, stock ECU, FCMs, RS3's, Hawk HT10 pads.

Be careful what you wish for in 2018 :party:

I tried to get stickers to everyone. If you didn't get any find me next year.

My body is ready.

Lols.

The only place I was getting my ABS to activate was into turn 2 sometimes, when I was going for #allofit braking force and wasn't quite square yet after the crest. Then the left front would activate a smidge.

aidandj 10-12-2017 11:57 PM

Braking too early :D

Mobius 10-13-2017 12:14 AM

No you misunderstand. I wasn't braking over the hill. I was coming into the braking zone sometimes still a little bit laterally loaded. I was far past the crest.

Lack of late braking into 2 was not losing me time. My line through 2 was probably costing me a second, second and a half. Need to hold it tighter than I was.

This gives me a 5 position potentiometer that will be used to control boost levels, traction control slip, and launch control.

What max and min resistance did you use?

Would there be a problem feeding Zero volts for the lowest input (input shorted to ground)?

aidandj 11-06-2017 12:11 PM

Hrrmmmm. I think i did 10k-50k maybe? ground for lowest input shouldn't be a problem.
