God, I love those polished Brembo calipers.

Also, cool to see they use the same anti-rattle design that my OEM Brembo rotors have. :-)

Last week I've driven from the Slovenian mountains to Sirmione then to Venice. And this morning I drove from Venice to Croatia. Lots of narrow lanes in "construction" zones and high(ly legal) speeds. Honestly, just driving on the highway can be fun enough. The VW Passat diesel doesn't have much power but you can practice some momentum driving on the mountain roads.

Replaced rear calipers after experiencing a RR caliper failure at COTA, finally rebuilt parking brakes (**** those springs), stiffer rear springs









Also discovered that inside section of rear rotors were cracked. Glad I caught it before catastrophic failure

Took the E92 out to the track today to give rides to sick/disabled kids and adults for charity. Yesterday everything was fine, was keeping up with a new NSX and a GT350...

... then this happened today on the warm up lap.

Looks like it broke off the shock body... that blows.
I would think the system as a whole would be designed for the end links to be the weak link. Sort of like a fuse... too much of anything and the endlink breaks instead of ripping the mount off the shock body or the swaybar off the subframe.

Oh hey that sucks. I had the exact same thing happen to me at Laguna Seca; ripped the endlink right off the shock body of my JRZs. I had to have JRZ replace the entire shock body, and that took months since it was summer and their Dutch factory was on half-shifts. Newer design shock body has more reinforcement there.
