Did you do the forscan ABS bleed procedurePreloading pedal-
I forgot who mentioned this awhile back. I am looking for some advice on how to improve this. I tried it at Road America and wow. It really makes a huge difference in confidence. Just need to get used to it and improve.
Any advice please send my way. This could be a huge step for me and other with this upgrade.
Short version:Help me with this. Does a shop do that or can I?
Did you do the forscan ABS bleed procedure
Download to laptop - windows.
View attachment 79822Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced ABS block bleeder tool. I searched some old posts but most of the links were dead. Amazon had several in the low $200 range which is reasonable but if anyone has personal experience with a cheaper tool that works (even with the race ABS module) I would...trackmustangsonline.com
You'll have to search through the program to use the abs bleed function. I think to be safe I ran on each corner.
This is something that people probably don't do.
I had the system pressurized with the motive bleeder at 15 psi and fluid reservoir filled. Hit the and bleed run on the laptop - ran to corner and opened bleeder screw until it went through the process. Did on each corner. Here's the reason. My thoughts - run bleed procedure with an unopened bleeder the fluid is stuck in the abs and just kind of sits there. Opening the bleeder allows the crap fluid to enter the line along with any air. After I did all 4 corners that way then I flushed the system properly. I have no peddle issues. Please note - If you compare street to track pads there's no comparison. It's just not apples to apples.
Someone chime in if I missed something.
Check craigslist or the Goodwill computer store for a gaming computer with windows 10. Sometimes kids will dump stuff cheap for the newest and latest. The only reason I say windows 10 is that it will most likely already have more than enough ram, storage for your needs along with a faster processor.Considering buying a small laptop to run forscan and download video at the track. Any recommendations for screen size, processor and memory needed?
I did just to be safe and would ONLY do if the system is pressurized. I figured what would it hurt... I know the manual doesn't say to but it makes me wonder. If there is a a boatload of air in the abs block or full of old fluid - cycling the module with forscan or whatever how much of that can be forced in to the closed system? Maybe I'm missing something with the way the block functions. Just me I want to get that fluid away from the block.The Ford Service manual says to perform a brake flush after the ABS bleed. It doesn't say anything about opening a bleeder valve during the ABS bleed.
How was the peddle feel?
Thanks for this, we just bought 2 'new' work stations for a few hundred bucks!Not sure if a smaller Windows tablet like below would work, but I really like refurbished Dell [semi-]rugged products. Search not only the Dell Outlet section at Dell.com, but the off-lease stuff at DellRefurbished.com which usually has better bargains. I've got an older Latitude ATG semi-rugged laptop I use for reviewing Aim data logs and video between runs, and a true outdoor-readable screen is a real advantage.
I was talking to a coworker who worked on S197 program and they mentioned that the 2013-2014 GT500 with 6 pots got a knockback mitigation tune, which takes up the "dead space" in the pedal that is there after a half a lap of no brake use. The base and 4 pot brembos didn't get this tune since it wasn't an issue. Unfortunately for us, I'm not well versed in changing our ABS unit logic to that of the GT500, but I'm pretty sure someone here smarter than I am might be able to chime in.Did it fix the issue....no. However it did make improvements. I would say 50% better.
If you have not used the brakes for lets say a half of lap and then try and jump on them. They feel weak and tons of dead space.
If you are running a hot lap and have used them 3 times already then jump on them. They feel good.
Preloading them still feels the best so far.
