I'd hope not,as I advised Dave to give them a steer.
They look good,no argument there,there good for day - day running,and the odd hoonage around the B roads,and are as good as,if not slightly better than the standard setup (despite smaller discs).
No good for a trackday though,they overheat massively,and that's with upgraded hoses (Goodridge) and upgraded fluid (Dot 5.1,can't imagine it would be better with other fluids).
4/5 laps of the BH Indi circuit,and I was having to pit, to let the brakes cool down!
Hence Dave's thread

Yep,your right,that's why he now run's (or did) AP brakes.
