Does it look at all like you could swap tail shaft housings? Then maybe use the shifter tower for the 8 on the tail housing of the 7 (for the reverse lockout)?

Last time at the track I used RaceChrono for android. I actually liked it a bit better than Trackmaster. Trackmaster still hasn't fixed their scaling issues on tablets, and it's been a year. Used...

You can keep thr system from arming by jumping the hood latch switch. On my 91 vert jumping the harness on the car side kept the system from arming.

You can, and I did. Only reason I had to stop is I wanted to go lower, and the only way to do that was to shave the slider and bolt the side mounts straight to the base rail.

Is this really the norm for 7s? My S5 vert rails unbolted and I used them on another seat for a while, and them bought rails from an S4 for another project. Those had the same mount holes.

It can work for the drivers side, as long as the seat isn't too wide or narrow, of course.

Its not for "no reason." The main part of steering feel is that torsion spring in the valve body, but that is static. Mazda was trying to get assist when you need it and feel when you need it. I...

That sounds about right. I remeber shopping the lines recently and they were about that much.

Can you elaborate what broke and why? Or is there a thread I'm missing? I'm currently designing my own, and there are already a few things I didn't like about the AWR kit.
