keep your brakes in mind

Yes I do have 4 wheel disc but the car is going faster.

I noticed something smudged all over my wheels from a track outting. I cleaned it all off and noticed it again from my last trip to the track.

After looking into it more, I have figured out that these will not provide adaquate braking @ 140+!

The fronts were getting so hot that it was boiling the fluid past the seals! I'm glad i'm observant because they could have just failed all together.

Bottom line........when the speeds go up, don't forget about the little/ big things.
