Glowing turbos are one thing... Glowing rotors are an entirely different story! Way to put them to work!

That's awesome man, I've been wanting to go to Fontana (as I am only 15 min away) for a while now. Just scared about the wear and tear parts...how many track days + daily driving does it take before new pads, rotors, and tires are needed?

Ughh, I had that problem with fluid on the Brembos on my Evo. Is there a way to prevent that? Seems like it happens to a lot of people that track and use their brakes hard.

Hey Lio,would love to put your upgraded brake system through the paces and see how they differ from mine.

Hey man a bunch of us are running Fontana http://www.speedventures.com/events/...il.aspx?id=462
in May,you should come out and get your feet wet.These 1LE's are built for this,so no worries.

Yes,that's the fluid pushing out,and it only happens under intense hard braking,but to me that's not ok.

It seems to be the case,i had someone say tighten the bleeder nut when they were hot. I tried this as soon as i got off track,but there were tight.

also did you experience fade and did the pedal get soft with that apparent leakage. Wonder what the dealer says. GoPro? Awesome idea to really capture what is going on instead of just viewing track line.

I had absolutely no brake fade at all.With seeing them glow like that,i have complete confidence in them.

The rotors getting red hot isn't a bad thing, it's just something that is hard to see when running in daylight. Because there isn't much light in the wheel well it's much easier to see with the camera set up you have. I can remember running a track night in to dusk at Gingerman and seeing lots of glowing rotors.

Alright gentlemen,here is another video of Sun.Notice at 10:30 in the 1st video i make my pass on a 2014 SS. What little tire i had left at that point was gone.Im not running our stock set up,im on my worn out standard SS Pirellie set up.The guy probably thought how cool he was keeping pace with a 1LE,believe me it would of been a different outcome if i was on my G2's.The Vette that passed us i passed several times earlier in the day when i still had some tire left.Notice him spun out at 3:30 of part 2
This NPP sounds so freaking sweet
