Yes they have a failsafe. But the car was being push to the limit. Theres little or no room for error.

Thats correct, if it would have happened on another part of the track where the speed wasnīt so high i might have had the time to do the extra pump on the brake pedale that is required to get the brakes to work when losing one of the lines.
But in this case, after 30 laps with a BBK and sticky R-tires you had moved the brakepoint as close to the end of the straight as possible, there is actually even less room for any failures if you compare it with a stock M3.
I have a much shorter distance to reduce the speed from 200km/h to 80 km/h

What brake kit is that? Pep might have to avoid that brand.

Was this a Nashin (the BBK manufacturer) product flaw or freak accident??

Yes it was a Nashin BBK but i donīt belive there was any faults on the kit,just bad luck.
There had beensome grinding beetween the the inside of the wheel and the caliper, which have reduced the thickness of the metall some, but the hole looked like a squere 2x2 mm,it looked like something hard had punched the hole

I would imagine that if you hit something hard enough and with enough force to puncture the caliper itself that you would have heard or seen it. I think that maybe the puncture to the caliper happened during the impact.

I'm not surprised considering aluminum is soft and all you need is a decent pebble to rubb between the caliper and wheel !

Nah - posted a thread here so obviously doing just fine and didn't respond to his post a few times while responding to others. His simple post of didnt get a chance to take a photo certainly seems reasonable to me.

Glad that the two of you are fine.

I've always been a bit leary with aftermarket brake work. I used to do all my own brake work when I tracked my RX7. I felt comfortable doing it on my own car since I would double check everything and would change the fluid before every track day. However, a friend of mine with a 911 Turbo wanted me to do his brakes and I refused.

Dealing with stainless brake lines is an added risk as full suspension and steering movement has to simulated to make sure there is no contact or kinking.

I personally would have a hard time getting my confidence back if that had happened to me.
