some people on this site have remined me that speeding on the road is dangerous. so i was just given permission to drive down the runway cos it was not active today. managed to get the car to 125mph before i braked to stop. the car felt very stable and it didnt feel like i was going fast.i applied full braking from 125 and the brakes smelt a bit[^]

Big up Ian hg (aka HG)........he got balls for sure.

I guess it aint the first time you've cooked your brakes.........at the end of my brake pads with 312mm TT fronts, i cooked them on one run so much the disks turned blue.

Hence why i went R32 setup.

Mate - this thread is so funny........
