    Nice one Ben, pretty early on the preparation eh?

    1.11s are meant to be awesome but tbh I've never tried them myself, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    For reference and for what's worth, I'm running RC6s at the back and my car does not suffer from brake imbalance.

    Bit early Yiannis yes, but gives me time to get used to the setup and find out if there is any imbalance!!
    Have DS2500 on the rears which have lots of meat left so hopefully won’t have to change them also.

    Nice one Ben - sure they will be a great upgrade - you going to put them on just before Spa or earlier ?

    How does that heat shield compare to the like of the nimbus heat shield on eBay? Obviously easier to bend into place but is it as good?

    Not tried it yet but it’s only extra precaution for brake servo as I already have a stiffer heatshield surrounding the turbo
