I'm building a vintage Mustang which the engine will be managed by MoTec and we'll also be installing a Bosch Clubsport ABS system. There is little information out "there" about working with this system, but Andre touched on it a moment in a recent webinar. I'm hoping there is enough interest to warrant a course on implementing and tuning these systems?

You should be able to get all the help you need from your Bosch Motorsports and MoTeC Dealers. Are you dealing with Brian Sakata or Colin Harmer?

The Bosch info I got had everything I needed to get it configured and working.

Thanks David, I've only talked with Sean Fischer in Dallas.

The M1 has support for the Bosch ABS systems built in.

I've been thinking about if I should get a Bosch M5 for my next build. Can anyone provide some comments on how they found using the ABS unit in practice?

What logging can be done into say a M1 or MoTec dash over and above system health? I.e. can you use the ABS data to tune brake bias? Overlay which wheels were being ABS'd and when in I2 etc?

From the Bosch documentation there are four channels that look interesting but don't appear in M1 but assume they will be on the CAN bus. Looks like they are a measure of an ideal brake bias and where you are in practice. Has anyone used this to help setup a brake system? I wonder if it is all based on internal calcs from setup or if the advice changes as fuel weight comes out.

1. "Brake_bal_at50" Calculated rear axle brake pressure if the front pressure is at 50bar.

2. "Brake_bal_at50_advice" Recommended rear axle brake pressure if the front pressure is at 50 bar

3. "Brake_bal_pct" Percental brake balance on the front axle.
