Id like to set it up for the track but I cant bring myself to thrash the hell out of her lap after lap she's too precious to me, on the road you can only use the power for a limited amount of time as my data logging has shown in fact ive only red lined 12 times since having the water/meth injection.
So a road set up it is . I will look into a brake bias system if I run into any problems.
Hopefully this will be fitted for JDM coombe.

Nice one bud looking sweet as.

Couldn't do me a favour and measure your rear oem discs? I'm needing to buy a set for mine as I'm sure they're warped due to a sticky handbrake. I can feel the judder through the pedal but not through the steering wheel so makes me think it's definitely the rear.

Cheers.
Andy.

@highland forry they measure exactly 315mm.
So I got the new calipers , discs and pads on today and broke them in ….. sublime is the only word that I can come up with . break in procedure requires 5times braking from 60mph to 30mph and then a 2mile non braking period which I explored the limits of grip with no brakes !!!!
