MG MGF Technical - EPAS disconnection
|I hate power steering on sportscars. Has anyone tried pulling their EPAS fuses out, to disable it? Does it work? Will it damage anything?|
I don't have power steering myself but virtually all the other sprint and hillclimbers that do remove the fuse when competing - so I guess this method works fine!
I do however think that the steering on PAS cars and non-PAS cars have a slightly different ratio.
|PaulN and MikeP are now so used to their cars with disabled EPAS (they've removed the under bonnet fuse) that they don't miss it!|
I've bucked the trend and have kept EPAS- when you live in an area where parking is a major form of physical exercise, one appreciates the assistance it provides.
Actually, I've been planning for quite some time to insert a relay into the EPAS circuit that would save the effort of having to remove the EPAS fuse... but maybe I am just being lazy! LOL
|It will work but has a different ratio than non Epas steering. Personally I have no problem with the Epas now I have my suspension sorted, it's still one of the best examples of power steering I have ever used. You get a lot more feel though it than others I have tried in the past.|
Personally I get more information through the seat of my pants than the steering wheel anyway.
