My guess is either light weight seats/interior or motor swap

IMO, terrible
-the finish degrades quickly, making them look crappy in short order
-I don't like any of the street pad options for them, and I've tried a TON (there are good track pad options, though)
-for the ST60s (does not apply to the ST40s), the pad knockback is terrifying and easily induced on the street. There's nothing I like less when back road bombing than pressing the brake pedal and not getting a result
-the stoptech rotors seem to wear out a lot faster than the brembo rotors

I swapped the sensors a second time, after the first swap set threw a code. Since then I haven't had a chance to data log to see if it addressed the issue. I should be able to do it this weekend.

The current set isn't throwing a CEL, though
