    all my stuff I'm selling I'm open to offers as it's stuff I pulled off the Mini that I don't need. Anything I make justs goes back into the car.

    These are the sensors that bolt on to each wheel hub where the rotor is to monitor the rotation of the wheels for the ABS system. If the any wheel locks up under brakes the calpier is released for a split second avoiding a skid. In rallying we like to skid!

    That is a great price.

    Funny how rally drivers & racers strive to make their cars as primitive as they can. :Thumbsup:

    All about the car control feeling and weight chuck. I was driving to work in heavy snow in my 2012 Accent?? which has a nice selectable gears (+ / -) and foumd with the traction control switched off the car was better to drive! Same goes for ABS! i don't like either.

    I here ya Chris, hate those nannies. I'm ok with the abs on my street car, but on loose surfaces abs sucks, especially on gravel. My traction control has remained off for the entire time I've owned my MINI. Ian Cull Auto-up with track mode FTW. :D
