Julia! I didn't know you posted a thread here!

You should post your engine rebuild stories and take some advice so you aren't rebuilding bottom ends after every event :P

Thanks for the accusump picture. I was reading through the thread wondering where you had it installed.

Do you have any accusump install notes that you could share? I'm considering it for pre-oiling.

I disagree...my car came alive with the brake controller. Some of the best money i've spent, especially when you consider the price. The car stops faster and I can rotate more reasonably in trail braking.

Wow old thread. I realize it's great, I have one, but he asked if it was "needed", guess it depends on your definition of needed. Anyways, if you already have it, definitely install it. I went through the trouble of installing it in the cockpit, but I'm not sure if that part is required. Maybe if my car was more reliable I'd have time to focus on my brakes and whether or not I could use some more rear bias and then it'd be handy to be able to adjust while driving, but for now I don't touch it much.

This might be it, although they don't offer a white one:
