Demesio, I am kinda thinking the same thing.

 

Things I hear;

 

It takes too much to wire it in.

I was making a whole new harness anyway.

 

Throttle lags the pedal action.

That can be tuned out. We can set 100% pedal is 80% throttle, or go full asshole mode where 20% pedal is 100% throttle, or any whatever we want.

 

I don't trust electronic throttles.

They seem to be holding up fine so far. What happens if the cable breaks on a hardwired throttle?

 

I think that most of these complaints come from factory cars which have been purposefully made to be dumb like that.

 

 

 

 

I see more pros than cons personally. We can add Traction control, WHICH CAN BE TURNED ON AND OFF. We can add in a valet mode so that the car will never see more that XX% throttle. Safety parameters can be set so that if the ECU sees that something is wrong it can force the car into true limp mode not allowing more that XX% throttle. If the firmware comes out as claimed I will also be able to have cruise control.

 

 

Huck, I have never driven a car with electric steering so I can't really have an opinion on it.

 

Gordo, you know you would love a self-driving car. More chances to sleep.

i support the self driving car. it wont be perfect but it will be infinitely more predictable in traffic.

 

for me personally: cable throttle, hydraulic power steering or none at all, same with brakes.

 

i'd retrofit carbs on everything and eliminate all complicated electronics to ensure it will survive the EMP blast from the inevitable conclusion of the second cold war.

There's lots of pros, and the Nissan throttles seem to work better stock for stock than the Toyota ones IMO

I own a bed....

I drive for excitement.

Only thing I have ever seen a throttle cable break on was a 1965 Ducati.

DBW - Fucking pussy shit.

I don't think hammed's balls are big enough to reach the blades.

Bumper bar is mocked up. Just tacked together right now. Once it is fully welded I will clean it and paint it.

Mineral spirits is good for loosening old tape glue, but you have to let it soak.

 

I want the Ferguson....I wonder if you can flip the axle up side down, to get 'stance'?
