A bit of a thread shift, for those of you using ABS on your track time, are you using anything other than 1? I had a few high rear wheel lift moments (doesn't bother me) but have not experienced ABS intervention on that setting at all. Fine with me, just wondering if others that complain about ABS being too interfering are using it with the no-lift settings. I imagine this would make it trigger earlier and extend braking distances.
I tried it on 1 with the stock springs that I'm too heavy for (205 lbs), and it triggered under hard braking on bumps. I nearly **** myself because I was not expecting it, I just shut it off after that. Even now that I have stiffer springs I run it off at the track, although I do want to try level 1 again to see how it works.

Same here, its only happened a couple of times (at which I started avoiding those certain areas on the track). I'm on OEM pads though so I'm sure I wouldn't really lock up otherwise.

@Forewarned , stiffer springs here as well, hard as **** to back under that 200lb mark nowadays with anything other than the flu or a wicked hangover for a few days : )

I am not a brake slammer, get the nose down then progressively feed more pressure in until I feel the rear getting light. I love a squishy lever, helps me achieve the above. In that mode ABS 1 has been fine for me.

I imagine if your braking style is different then ABS may be better off.

@KarlKani I'll have to remember that my braking points are gonna be earlier than you now and not try to follow you in too deep!

Where do you guys buy the EBC HH? I need to replace mine before 2019.

The Carbone Lorraine brake pads are opposite of the HH pads. HH pads give a good hard initial bite and get a little better through the braking zone. CL pads have a low initial bite and will stop you a little deeper after a little heat is built up. You will go deep AF into a corner screaming holy FK i'm in too deep and then all of the sudden you are stopped. And you think fk I could have gone ten foot deeper, a very progressive pad. So instead of the rear coming up when snap the brakes on, the rear will come up a little and dance as you go deeper into the corner and the pads produce more stopping power with heat.
