    There is a series of short videos from my local brake specialists that I highly recommend to and driver who tracks their car or is interested and wanting to increase their knowledge base as all brakes and components are not created equal.

    always think this is an area people neglect to a degree, when we got our st180 it was a very good car out the box but the one area i sai wanted sorting asap was the brakes just didnt have the right bite/feel to them.

    went with an uprated set of discs, braided brake lines and then the best mod a set of mintex m1144 pads, they took a little while to bed in but my god they totally transformed the braking

    Must admit. I do love my K-Sports. Using yellow pads on grooved discs. Work great, straight from the cold.

    Jus tested my AP Racing 4 pot calipers @ a track day today and 2 other drivers commented on how late I was braking for turn 1.

    They are so confidence inspiring the way they haul the car down to corner speeds lap after lap |B
