Ohlins suspension, wheels, tires, pads. She has the 17x9s and didn't roll the fenders out far enough so we're still working on it. The car is boring a stupid, it makes no sense to buy one unless you like shitty brakes and are rich enough to pay for the car, tires, and pads for the shitty brakes.. NA/NB is better in every practical way.
Shitty brakes? On the car that everyone in SCCA ITS is terrified that someone with driving skill will do a legit build on and dominate all of them in the braking zones because the car both brakes ridiculous and turns like bastards while still hard on the brakes?

ABS in these cars suck in the dry and brake bias is less than desirable. Sure, it's still fast but it would be hard for me to go from the brakes on the green car to OEM NC brake parts with hot pads. Let's not forget the shitty pad taper and ABS panic when you're way deep into the corner.

Does the Grand-Am substitute Bosch computer change ABS?

Not sure. I have no idea how well they brake in grand am form but in SM5 (more or less spec miata for MX5s) form with stock ABS they're insane.

Details on the silver wheels and tires vs the bronze? I searched the thread, but didn't find anything specific.

I'll ask LRR when I get my car retuned over winter what they're doing for ABS.

I'm not sure, I assume the ABS computer is separate (like most other cars?).

Most of the competitive cars in ST either have the Bosch Motorsports ECU allowed or some other Motorsports ABS controller specifically allowed. So, maybe they can do ABS tuning with the Bosch ECU.

Considering how amazing the MX5s and BMWs brake, and that both are not specifically allowed ABS controllers, I would venture a guess that they aren't having problems with ABS. At least not like what Hustler was experiencing.

Rumor says that this car might be up and running again right now.
