Rear brakes get a workout, too

Just ran across this great photo over on onehotlap.com showing a Turner car practicing at night for the upcoming Rolex Daytona 24hr. We're used to seeing front rotors glow red hot, but apparently the Turner boys have some rear bias dialed in here!

Nice! I suppose the rear wing definitely helps putting more downforce on the rear axle. This is also a tube frame car which probably has very different weight distribution than our cars.

The entire car looks dialed in. The front end looks like its riding an inch off the ground. Sick!

That car also runs a transaxle as per the rules so the weight bias is a lot different than the production car.Great Pic

I am sure I could get my brakes to glow like that too right before I go off into the gravel trap.
