I used ebc reds , rubbish on a track. Tony, lost all numbers can u msg me yours to arrange pick up?
Today at 06:48:07 PM
Haha, not consecutive - most I did in a day was about 75, with consecutive around 12 to 14. . The car has actually done about 350 laps out there all up.
Today at 06:42:18 PM
250 laps!? What, consecutive laps? If your car still alive??
Today at 06:38:30 PM
The stock calipers with uprated pads and rotors are well up to the task. I put 250 laps at Eastern creek on the stock gear and I didnt have any issues until I went with the 255 rubber.
Today at 01:27:59 PM
Yeah its not super high on the list if I'm honest. Once the engine mods are in place my focus (:D) will shift to suspension.
Today at 01:00:45 PM
If stock calipers are robust enough to withstand track work for a long term then i would not change them.
Today at 09:36:35 AM
Right, let me know if you get any major issues getting the brakes past compliance!
Today at 09:27:44 AM
Ok. Ignore last
Today at 09:27:15 AM
And the elevate are equivalent are they not?
Today at 09:26:18 AM
Well they're not a BBK in the sense that rotor size doesn't change (stock 320mm) but caliper piston number increases to 6. In the process of getting the whole car engineered.
Today at 09:19:20 AM
The Elevates aren't really a BBK they fit under factory rims. Did you get yours engineered Damnfuzz?

"Substitution of brake master cylinders, wheel cylinders, calipers and other components with components not equivalent to original for the braking system configuration."  
Today at 09:12:52 AM
I think the consensus that excellent rotors/pads/lines/fluid is enough for most, and only the more serious/regular track machines need BBKs etc. Says the guy with the Elevate/Wilwood kit.....Wink
Today at 09:11:22 AM
Isn't it only necessary if the amount of pistons change?
Today at 09:04:32 AM
I believe QLD is the same. Looks like DBA4k and ds2500 is the better option. I was just thinking that once I factor in cost of 4 disks and pads its not a big jump to the elevates. Not worth it if it requires engineering though.
Today at 08:58:09 AM
Yeah IM, technically it will require engineering due to the caliper change (in NSW anyway).
Today at 08:56:01 AM
Does anyone know if something like the Elevate brake kit is actually street legal in Aus? Would changing the calliper require and an engineers cert and mod plate?
Today at 08:16:21 AM
Does anyone run the E10 or Premium 98 Ethanol fuels full time in their cars?
January 30, 2015, 09:28:11 PM
Nah, I think that's from the ADD, lol.
January 30, 2015, 09:23:22 PM
Oh well explains your technical aproach. Smiley

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi

Hi All,

A quick cheers and beers to everyone who has dropped in, dropped out and bounced around the FordXR5Turbo.com community over the past 2,738 days of existence - we recently ticked over 9001 members so I felt it was a solid arbritary number to celebrate.  Thumbsup

Thumbsup 9001 Members!  Thumbsup

We may be working with a 7.5 year old child who occassionally has issues with authority, punctuality and humour but I'm sure we'd all agree they've been a welcome addition to our lifes.

Thanks again for being part of such a great community I never expected would become what it has. Much love.  Cool

Cheers,
Miyagi
