Eating a sandwhich - getting on the dirty clothes - and then swapping the kit from my car to Paul's track car tonight

I think they are done and on the road testing right now… kit looks really good and I will most likely put similar kit on my C5 once I start eat pads like Ken :-)

I can vouch for J Ritt and these brakes after this weekend. Hi Jeff!

I'm loving the AP Racing BBK. Awesome brakes! They handled VIR Full with ease. Looking forward to running them at RA and CMP.

BTW... My IWSTI journal is now up. Check it out!

UPDATE AFTER TESTING THE KIT AT VIR

TrackDaze at VIR is 2 hours. (8-30 minute sessions)

The brakes worked without fail the entire time. He used Ferodo DS1.11 brake pads and Motul RBF600 brake fluid.

I need a further careful inspection but the rotors did not heat check yet - and the pads are worn a pretty small amount.


After a good long weekend at VIR outrunning most of the group:








All four of us ran – Joe is the ‘manager’ (cool guy in shades!)


No wreck – no break – a great weekend of fun and there is no place better than VIR at sunset on Sunday after the paddock empties.

Size of DOT slicks? Also excuse my ignorance but what does heat check mean for the rotors?

I believe they are 245/40/18 Hankook Ventus Z214. They were brand new.

He was running RE-01/NT-01 before he got the slicks. Pad wear was fairly high - 2-3 events max and the rotors (DBA 5000's - as good as it gets) look like this. That turns to cracks eventually of course - but that nice fine pattern of heat checking indicates a good rotor warmed up and cooled down etc.





That will eventually get worse and worse as the cracking opesn up - but based on what is on my Corvette they can run like that for quite a while.

Yep exactly what happened to my DBA 4000's that I got from you. The rotors made it two race weekends and one of the cracks found its way entirely through the rotor hat. I can't wait to keep an eye on this kit and see how many weekends the rotors/pads last.

Those 5000's lasted I think 3 or 4 events on Paul's car - still a good bit of life left. And the 5000's on my Corvette have made it through 5 weekends - which is pretty muh unheard of on a C5 w/ Hoosier's/race pads.

Do you have ducting? That helped Paul's car quite a bit I am sure. Do you have pics of your 4000's btw?

These are some better pics of the 5000's on my C5 back in April.

Looks terrible - but we ran them again last weekend. I may have to retire them now though - I let the pads get too thin so the rotors got a bit grooved.

Here is all of my ducting craziness with ram air ducts combined with 3" inline blower fans that Y into the ram air in the frame rail. I didn't get pictures of the crack that developed on the 4000's and I am overseas right now so can't really get the pics for a bit. I was surprised when I realized that the crack went right through the rotor after a total of only 3 hours on the track, oh btw Raybestos ST-43's are the pads that I am using.

We had 1-2 sets of the 4000's go pretty early but in general they do OK.

If your Brembo's are still gold like that you may want to just consider some sort of BBK right away - whether it be this one or something else. You obviously drive hard. Did the rotor split through the wiper slot?

That's definitely the crazy ducting - I remember when what's his name did that on his bugeye.

Those pictures are before switching to 275/35/18 Continental racing slicks the Brembos are a very dark brown now. Yeah the crack starts at a wiper slot and moves its way upwards I thought it was okay until I realized that it extended through the entire outer hat. I will need to pick up another set of 4000 fronts from you to finish out the season. The BBK will come this winter I had planned on a Stoptech kit hence the reason I already have a few sets of 18" rims. It was Dunk who decided to move onto a Spec Miata that did that crazy ducting originally.

The framerail ducting works really well, and I 've used it with Stoptechs the last 3 years, running Hoosier slicks(not DOT) and Pagid pads. I get very minor checking in the rotor after a full season, using Stoptech rotors.

This is where my well used 08 Brownbo's and DBA 5000s found a new use after upgrading my 08 STI to AP Racing BBK.

Brakes are not the issue right now but I know for sure it will be once I switch to slicks… I’m also all about that AP racing kit for my car and like Ken said what makes this kit unique is the price of replacement pads/rotors.

The AP Racing BBK performed perfectly at Carolina Motorsports Park for the Subaru Showdown. While many of the other subies were getting mushy brakes and roasting their wheel bearing I ran both PDX Advanced and TT non-stop. 3+ events and I still have enough pad for another weekend. Thanks to KNS Brakes, AP Racing, Essex, Ferodo for the awesome BBK.

Mighty bold statement there...... I'd be willing to bet there there was at least one other person there with sorted brakes.

Thanks for calling me out on this! There were lots of great race teams and drivers there with other BBKs. All I know is my kit worked great at CMP (East and Full) and the pads are 1/2 the cost compared to the stock Brembo's, which btw worked pretty good for the Forester running DTC 60s on CMP-East course...
