Default Adding traction control

Now that I have a turbo and MS3 in my Mk1 1.8 Westfield I thought it might be a good idea to setup the traction control option in the MS3. The Mazda hubs I am running are non-ABS. I was going to get two of the DIYAutoTune hall effect sensors and put one on a front wheel and the other on a rear wheel. Would putting ABS rings on my hubs be OK for detecting a signal for VSS1 and VSS2?

Easiest thing to do it's just swap in an ABS spindles and hub for the front wheel speed. I'm running an NB so I can get rear wheel speed from the trans. I'm pretty sure the NA's convert the mechanical drive to a digital signal in the cluster so you can grab it there.

Mostly follow this. Get ABS spindles and HUBS. Use a stock sensor for the front wheel and rear wheel. Use a conditioner board to make the signal something the MS can read. Then start playing with traction control. AidanJ has a ton of info in his build thread about setting it up, along with a thread or two in the MS section on here.
