Videos - Hooked on Driving Homestead HPDE 2011 12 10
Just a couple of videos, I will add more later from the view of my friends Z06. This was an awesome time and going again this Saturday 2011 12 17
First video's kinda fun, see what happens when you run out of brakes.. fade and too far of a breaking point..
Second video, my buddy in the Z06 follows me around for a few laps, much better this time around.. Lines are smoothening out a bit.. but can't wait to get my LSD.
I have a couple of videos from my perspective.. but camera position FTL!.. I'll still post them later.
Edit: I was running the stg1 aggressive linear on these runs, performed well and not too much power..

Standard 135i M-tech brakes tend to fade after 2 to 3 rounds of hard circuit driving. I can tell you this from experience.
I upgraded to Performance disks, but have not yet had a trackday to test the difference...
Also your tire pressure tends to skyrocket due to overheating brakedisks.There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

Then by late Jan - mid Feb probably pull the trigger on the LSD.

Did you notice any difference in braking firmness with the stainless.brake.lines?There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

my new cool carbon pads are awesome! just finished bedding them in.. about 8 stops from 70-10, 80-10, 80-10, 90-10, 100-10, 110-10, 115-10, 130-10.. no fade. It's not the on/off switch the stockers were, but much smoother, ABS never even kicked in.
My stock pads were all cracked, specially the front ones and they were only put through one track day..
