The weak link for me was overheated / seized caliper seals. (The pfc01's didn't fade, the motul fluid didn't boil, the braided lines didn't melt, and the rotors didn't explode). Be careful using those oem components on track.
What happens when piston seals overheat/seize? Do you just get sudden brake failure out on track when you were counting on being able to actually make that turn that's now coming up all too fast, or is there a process that gives you some warning? Do you get clued in with observable brake fluid leaks before you'd experience brake failure?
