Figured out the activation parameters for the emergency flashing brake lights + hazard 4 way flashers after stopped.

If anyone wants to know, it's:

Speed >80km/h
Deceleration >6m/s
ABS activation

Is this factory behavior, or is this something that needs to be coded? I like the notion of additional safety measures of this nature, but was unsure if this is something that can be coded in or exists by default for NAR vehicles.

Coded, exists for cars sold everywhere else; NAR vehicles are sold with the useless tail/turn signal tail light combo.

Good to know -- I have euro R tails on my NAR vehicle, I'll have to do some digging and see if I can find the coding info for this behavior. Thanks!

I only programmed it in after retrofitting European tail lights; the behaviour is not suitable for brake/turn signal combo lamps. It'll still work but the desired effect is no good.

Removed the ecs front air duct thingy. The plastic one, not the cf one. It was sagging in the middle pretty bad. And it’s weird cuz I asked @jimlloyd40 and he said his wasn’t sagging at all.

went to my brother in laws shop yesterday and I heated up a screw driver and made holes on the stock air duct, on the (American) drivers side. After a bunch of holes, I went at it with a (I think?) die grinder. I dunno this tool could be called something else? But yeah, the driver’s side is open now.

Jim is 70+ how could his not be sagging?
