I recently picked up a SE30 that was built by the prior owner but then never actually ran…So, I am the one doing all the shakedown work on the car over a few broken track weekends (three days prior to then pandemic and one since). To date, that has meant replaced wiring harness, replaced front caliper (because girling on one side and ATE on the other), new brake reservoir, and oh yeah, replaced the motor
At VIR this past Friday I managed to get a bit over zealous going into turn 4 resulting in complete lockup on my passenger front (outside to the corner if unfamiliar) and a nice flat spot on my tire. I was driving extremely poorly at this point and definitely stabbed the brakes vs squeezed (no attempt at threshold braking at all), but I didn`t really detect the typical ABS pulse in the pedal and clearly smoked an individual tire. That being said, all of the typical ABS checks look OK (No ABS light, and I know the ABS light works as an early problem has me use a wiring harness that was missing pin 20 at the c101 and that lit the ABS light up).
Long story short, I have suspicion that the ABS system is not working appropriately despite the fact that I don`t have the ABS warning light. Is there any particular checks I can do or should I just chalk it up to my craptacular driving at that moment?
