OK, will reword my question, at the top levels of motorsport, which system is used floating caliper with single piston or fixed caliper with multi pistons.

Oh!!! Jeezus!!!!! Let this thread die, already. I'll buy a crappy set of red calipers if it'll shut you guys up. I don't care if they won't make my car any faster around Laguna. I'll throw the perfectly fine single piston calipers away. Just kill this pitiful thread!


PLEASE!

Thats just like you. Yell at people to shut up if you don't like their opinion. Personally I wouldn't trust BMW brakes at Laguna, having driven with them there before, and having had terrible fade among other problems.

Really. I don't care. I'm just tired of the same arguments over and over.
There have been hints of an interesting discussion on whether the H&R springs work well with EDC. Another on when larger bars will be available.

By the way, did you notice Max Angelelli only got 1:45 out of an Exige S at Laguna?

Let's change the subject.

LOL - die thread die!!!! why buy red calipers - just paint the stock ones red. I hear that reduces fade!

yes - top levels also use carbon brakes? would you pay $10k more for an optional carbon brake set up on an M3? I would be tempted too especially since the rotors and pads are supposed to last 100,000 miles?

Funny part is, even the manual says at least change the pads for track days.

So change out your brake fluid, buy race pads, and paint your calipers red..... When your brakes aren't fading as much as you expect, tell people its b/c of the red multi piston Brembos.... (cough, cough)

Ego feels better, and the brakes will be just fine for 99.99% of the professional drivers(yes I'm being sarcastic) on this thread.
