    Need new brake pads already? I'm not sure if i'm going I'd like to have someone to come with me to drive the car and me home after a full day of driving on track. I really like that track, It's awesome!

    In Belgium in april and especially the ardens, you can have snow or 26°C or something in between. You just never know, climate change ftw. :think:

    same as the rest of the year, kevin. totally unpredictable. :grinning:

    last year i went one time in june, was moist in the morning, dry till 2pm, wet from there on with heavy rain come 5pm.
    in august i drove a first tracknight (is more like a 'trackevening'). i had drizzle when driving up there, then brilliant sunny and cool weather when on track and drizzle again when driving home. in september a second tracknight, brilliant weather. in all, quite lucky with the weather in 2016.

    i have my eye on circuit-days november date. a bargain for a full day (£199), but i'm not committing till i see what the weather is up to. for all i know it could be freezing or snowing. that said, it could be 20°C and brilliant sunshine.

    nope. not the pads. just brake fluid.

    i bought some DS1.11 a couple of weeks ago, but the galfers still have a bit of life in them.
    curious as to how both pads compare.

    Swapped the ferodo pads for the Galfer's. And changed the engine oil and filter today.

    I just orderd a set of Eibach springs, I think the front right spring broke. Orderd the -20/-25mm springs.

    Massive improvement. Better comfort, less bodyroll, more grip. I never expected this amazing result. Wow :shocked:

    Offcourse can't compare this to proper OEM suspension.

    Is yours a Cup or Non-cup ?

    I've just fitted the same springs to my Non-Cup and was amazed at the difference..............
