Check your stuff, paint mark it, become (somewhat) self sustainable in track prep. Could save your weekend, your car or even your life. Especially in this day and age where quality work is very hard to come by. I'm baffled at some of the crap I see around here.
You don't have to name the shop but..:in which S. FL city was this?

Not sure if anyone runs the PFC Z54 BBK in here but I have some new and used Carbotech XR2 race pads for that BBK I am selling. I also have some Alcon 378mm rotors that will work with the PFC kit as well.
These are all at least 50% off where they were new. 😭

It was ultimately the reason I switched to my AP kit. I got the Carbotech pads but rotors were no where to be found lol. It was a mess!

I've been happy with the AP kit, and the ferodo 3xx whatever number they are lol

Maybe they only have a .5 to 11 Nm wrench.

Post this in the Discord.

Otherwise, I would suggest just grabbing some Performance Ceramics for your street car and brake fluid.

But once we can get back in shouldn’t take too long to get the finished version of the kit done.

Has anyone ran the Hankook Z214 C51's? I usually run Pirelli DH take offs but need to grab four new tires to setup the suspension, these seem like the right price, but is the grip closer in line to a DH takeoff or more towards a NT-01?

I've been wondering the same. Would love some comparisons to Hoosiers too

The Hankook is a fast tire, is what I have heard from those who use it. Similar to a Hoosier R7.
