Post The Brake Breakdown

Hey everyone,

Just dropped a new blog today. Check it out here. After some track sessions with both our FK7 and FC1 I was not thrilled with the brakes on either of the cars. I knew that a big part of it was the pad compound but I also knew the car was getting faster, the tires were getting stickier, and the aero was going to make more down-force once on the car. So that made me start thinking about an upgrade. No real good pad and rotor options exist yet with expect one or two pad manufacturers and even at that I wonder if the stock caliper can take the abuse.

The blog goes into a little more detail in between the kits and we see what some of the differences are. Been playing with the idea of an upgrade for a few months now so will see what we can make happen.

Let me know what you guys would like to see.
