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.

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
