    Knockhill Track - DONE !

    Knockhill Track - DONE !
    Well, did the intro to track days last night at knockers...
    maybe fried the brakes……they were nice ebc redstuff...now a burnt grey colour !
    lost two centre caps from heat …..smoking brakes when I finally stopped...
    A mate at work was there, her husband on track in an 07 Scooby Imprezza STi..I never managed to overtake him…but kept on his ass all the time !


    Out of 8 cars, he and I stayed out all the time, and must have been fastest…..
    managed to overtake J plate skyline, VX220 turbo, Porsche, Honda S2000
    ….others (audit tt, elise) did’nt stay out on track long enough for us to get them !


    Tyres scrubbed a bit as well.... but great fun

    sounds like great fun, and you sure do know how to drive

    good to see someone actually going out and enjoying their mods properly

    Brake Pads - 15 mins !!

    I have issues with the map though.... getting flat spots just after 3k revs..

    which is when I need power coming out of a corner/hairpin...
    So will have to try some other maps available...

    If the brakes aren't smoking and the pedal going mushy, you're not trying hard enough.

    First time through the unsighted chicane is usually good for a laugh
