hey, pad material & wheel vibrations are overrated, it ain't broken until you hear metal scraping against your rotors :-)

Hope everyone made it home ok

Stock pads and rotors here. I ended up leaving early on day 2 because I was getting judder through the steering wheel when the front rotors got hot. New rotors before next event!

The M3 was a dream to drive on the track!

Just got my car back from the dealer. Had the rotors replaced.

The tech wrote:

"FOUND FRONT ROTORS ALL OUT OF SPEC AND BLUED"

Wonder how that happened.

LOL

I just got back from service as well, they didn't replace any brake-related items except the sensors, which got rid of the damn red BRAKE light off my dash.

They said nothing about my mods either!

Mt Laurel in NJ, they took good care of me. The car took longer than expected due to software updates, so I got a rental car from enterprise and went home. Picked it up this morning.

I didn't get to capture the runs, but I got a few of our base, Peter's brilliant tent, and a neighbor's beast M3

I may upload my session vids later.. but really nothing will be learned except demonstrating how Cool Carbons will jutter after a few laps..
