Yeah... fingers crossed. He just told me he has 1000 units on order so when he gets them we'll be the first to know.

Welp, looks like it's time for Torque RT700 or Endless RF-650.

I bet Fall Line et al might have a line on some already-built cars. Always one or two for sale at a discount to the cost of building

SCCA has not yet seen the light and built a Super Touring power to Wright class for 3L-7L cars but T1 is probably the closest thing to it

I would definitely talk to the guys at Fall-Line. Their shop at Autobahn CC has tons of E92 race cars in it. Maybe they'll sell you one?

I ordered a bottle of SRF from Amazon. The compressibility thing sounds like BS for a car with a brake booster.

maybe something in SRF that's managed to achieve a spot on the human carcinogenic substance list and they're in the middle of a changeover to a substitute. When it's cagey like this, from a long-running specialty product, and it's a propriety petrochemical formula, that's sometimes the case

I had an amazon vendor cancel my SRF order a few weeks ago. I'm just using the AMSOil I had laying around.

Heres yesterday at MSR Cresson with the SCCA TT guys, car is in TT3 trim. You should come out it uses standard Autox classing so I bet you would do great.

I spent around 1000 on SRF in the past month, I bought everything I could get my hands on and now I'm good to go for a couple seasons.

As long as someone makes SRF I'll buy it, even if I have to ship it here from Europe.


Life is too short to be bleeding brakes every event.

Iíve been told my bleeds are excessive by the guys that race with it. I have no doubt SRF is the best option, just throwing Project Mu out there again if the SRF does actually go away.

Switch to Endless instead of shipping from Europe. You might find the pedal feels better as a bonus. Same thing, I don't bleed it for a year.

Switching topics slightly, decided to switch to Carbotech XP12/XP10 pads at the advice of KNS and my driving coach, Scott Adams. Been having issues with the ABS intervening too much (and at random), which makes me think the Hawk DTC-60s have too much initial bite.

Price was about $560 shipped for a set of fronts and rears. I figure if I don't like them, I'll try the Raybestos ST43 which was the other recommendation.

Anyone here have experience with Carbotech? Thoughts on the 12/10, specifically initial bite and modulation?

Anyone doing MSR Cresson with Chin this weekend? I'll be there both days, getting coaching on Saturday from Scott.

I'm sure it's not going away, but there have been periodic shortages in previous years where it's hard to come by
