Oh, one other question, what did the other MDCT owners have to say about driving it on the track? Obviously, we all know about the downshifting issue, no need to repeat those comments.
Did you get any pad transfer and thus vibration from the front rotors?
I used the same technique for downshifting...after turn in and before the apex. It worked ok, but it certainly is a compromise.
