As long as you checked it (assuming you know what to look for, it seems you do and brakes really arent complicated) and nothing is wrong. Check for other things wearing or running/ scrapping.

Other then that enjoy! How was Watkins glen? Was it the full track?
Both the mechanic hired by Trackmasters (very experienced) and I (20+ years of fabricating and racing drag cars) both inspected and found no rub marks on anything.

This was my second two day school at Watkins Glen. Excellent track to run. Only NASCAR runs the short course, everybody else runs the full 3.4 mile 11 turn long course including all the driving schools. I'll have some video up on the 1LE thread when I get time to edit and post.
