    Did that as soon as I bought it, repair kits are utterly useless.

    Did Snetterton yesterday. 17 degrees with occasional sunshine. Left aircon off. Car was well behaved with temperature gauge not going much over half way. Very pleased with that

    It was 22-23c at Cadwell and mine only crept a touch over half way solo and a notch higher with a passenger. Was keeping the sessions short though as I was running the OEM pads and contiís.

    How was yours temp wise at the ring?

    I was 4 up with a bootful of booze at the ring and it was 28 degrees. I was taking it pretty easy and the gauge was right at the top. I've no idea how much warmer the car has to get before it goes into limp mode but I eased off and turned off air con.


    Bedford earlier this year was around 22 degrees and I was again near the top with air con on.


    My brakes are pretty cooked but I don't find the tyres or brakes to be a limiting factor - must try harder

    Just to add that I (hopefully) fully disable any stability control (which I understand chews the rear pads) by holding down the stability control button for 10 seconds while in R mode.

    When you go +R and do the hold it will say fully off in the dash and you need to press ok to clear the written warning.

    Yeah AC off is a must, with it on you are heating the air with the warm condenser before it flows through the main rad.

    I found the contiís pretty bad, they rolled over onto the sidewalls unless I put more pressure in them at which point they overheated after a single lap.

    Smeared a good deal of pad material over the front discs too but itís clearing up slowly.

    Anyone turned their Reb Brembos into BrownBos?

    A more aggressive pad does it.
