I'm in work today, had to travel 90 miles to get here. I performed several 70 to 40mph tests along the way.... man can this car stop now
... i was counting 1001, 1002... did't even get full to 1003 when the car was < 40
At one point i was doing 70'ish on a back road when the cross roads just "appreared out of now where" .... with less than 50 yards to stops ALfenia came to a magnificent sounding whhuuuuurrrrrrrrr stop
the hair son the back of my head stood up, after i had removed my face from the steering wheel.
Maybe its a combination of great brake & *new* continential contact sport2 tyres ... but breaking now is almost neck breaking
I have noticed a few things:
1. my brake pedal is effective from the instant i press it & firmer too
2. reagardless of disc temperature these brakes work very well when cold & brillantly when hot.
3. Repeated hard braking doesn't seem to bother them at all.
I'm now tempted to go & buy 6 grooved for the back of her. I really like the *cleaning* feature of these disc's .... should be standard on all cars ... .imo
I highly recommend anyone with braking issues on their ARs to do some form of brake upgrade...... it can be expensive, unless like me you get the parts 2nd hand off a known source, but its worth it.
