So what were your conclusions on your Essex brake upgrade then? Was there a noticeable difference in how late and how hard you could brake? Was there more consistency? Would love to hear your impressions.

By cooler temps you mean the brakes stayed much cooler? How did you measure the temps to know they stayed cooler? Also do yo have any brake cooling ducts installed? I'm assuming the answer is yes but could you provide any details on your brake duct set up? Thanks.

You can tell in many ways! One Zero Fade not running Castrol SRF which was a must with my old setup. After each session the amount of heat radiating from the front end was equal to the rear. Before, you could fry an egg 5 feet from my front brakes. I have had the quantum brake cooling ducts since my second track day. The brakes felt the same from my first session at Sebring last week to my last session at PBIR last night!

I'm using Ferodo Super Formula Brake Fluid.

hey summit, what part of the power band did you see the most improvements in after adding your cam? i noticed your car really pulls on the straights, and you were reeling every car in on that long sweeper at daytona.

Low end torque and High RPM power was the biggest improvement. Now I just need a bit of help getting the power to the ground. Also some Aero wouldn't hurt!!

Prob in the following order

1.Oil temp and oil pressure gauge.
2.305/30/19 track wheels.
3.jp solutions splitter and wicker bill
4.Upgraded cooking radiator/oil cooler
5.DETROIT SPEED coilovers or Penske if I hit the lotto
6.Upgraded hammer head differential.
That about wraps it up!
