My cars having a regular maintenance wash done since it was detailed as their prices are crazyy good and it saves me trying to try and find the time to do it. Had the inside and outside done this time.Screenshot_20201004-210234.thumb.jpg.f30797fd8a946553235126de6f907c2b.jpgIMG_20200926_203738_755.thumb.jpg.a26100ae1e4e617bf492560f7cd7e70a.jpgIMG_20200927_131302.jpg.ae49f7d631faffaad3ba267fecfea9a6.jpgIMG_20200926_161226.thumb.jpg.6dcccabc69eea8cdfbfc1e59e423819f.jpgIMG_20200927_144051_526.thumb.jpg.9166651845e50c95893f7313a0641173.jpg

Bought some new front brake pads as my PFC.08's were starting to get a bit past it after 10 trackdays on them.

I've gone for PFC's again but PFC.11 this time which are meant to have even better braking performance at the cost of a little longevity.

The braking on the PFC.08's is fantastic so the fact these are supposed to be even better is something I'm struggling to comprehend.

These, along with a couple of other little changes, should hopefully give me pretty decent braking for my final trackday of the year at the club day on the 21/11.

Just to add to the information on tyre weights I've put on here the AD08RS in 224/45/17 weigh in at 10.5kg. Many thanks to @Kaltorak for providing me with the info as I'd forgotten to weigh them myself.

Next part of the brake upgrade arrived today.

I wanted to try Castrol SRF but didn't fancy remortgaging so this seemed the next best choice as it has a decently high dry and (more importantly) wet boiling point.

I collected the rest of the brake upgrade todayIMG_20201017_120614.jpg.1f46b1c3f6e65e4de41232f4065fcc8d.jpg

I've gone with the Reyland AP BBK with curved internal vein J hook discs. These should hopefully work very nicely with the PFC.11 pads and Motul RBF660 fluid.

Discs are 330mm

Best mod ever if you track your car. 👍

I'd be putting money on an oil cooler before a BBK for the track. Oil was getting beyond 125C before the brakes even had a chance to fade otherwise.

No, been on stock brakes with steel lines, better fluid and track pads up until this goes on.

Wow, nice! How did you find they held up on a long stint? Many issues?

No problems with the right pads. Only swapped to the BBK for the cheaper consumables costs

You certainly won’t be sorry moving to the BBK, I’ve been running an AP BBK for the last four years on my track car and the performance is immense,

As it happens I also run the motul fluid and have zero issues, and I really do lean on the brakes very heavily.

Your only challenge now will be recalibrating your braking points with the new kit fitted, fun times ahead :-)

Well done Jeff. Now look forward to even better Bedford times. By the way, how much did it lighten the pocket by emoji2.png

With the pads and fluid I sourced myself (as I didn't want the ds2500's) it came to £1820 as I paid a little extra for the red calipers and curved internal veins on the discs
