(Iv'e seen many in winter blow the stop sign because of speed and not allow extra distance to start slowing and I who doesn't have the stop sign stop in time for them watching their scared and surprised(that I stopped) faces as they slide by)
I'm in a similar boat. I had a stuck brake but because it happened when I don't drive often, I didn't notice it. It still got good fuel economy and unless I was going breakneck speeds around twisty mountain roads, I could still stop fast enough with an overheated disk.
Getting sensor data off of a pre OBDII Toyota ECU via TDCL.
All of this is on E10: Project E is my current focus.
