you've never washed your car and let it dry without driving it? The rotors rust in a manner of minutes....cast iron tends to do that

Great point. Some people get these BBK's for the show apeal of them. IMO, that is one expensive show piece,


Maybe someday I will but my big brake kits to good use out on a track. (very sarcastic)

Wow, I am not sure who you are out on a track with where you can gain TWO SECONDS on someone IN EVERY TURN, but I am sure they help out a little.

Definitely not every turn!

Turn 1, Texas World Speedway CCW... 135mph down to around 75 Two seconds is probably the best case scenario, but I seriously gain all kinds of time with those brakes.

Or, Turn 15, TWS clockwise (other end of the above straightaway), same deal.
