  1. Looking for a Pair or a single set of FIA rated seats. thanks
  2. I’d be curious to understand if the Alcon and PFC rotors had the same vane count, thickness and mounting style. I’ve got 6 weekends on my Coleman rotors and they have heat cracks but nothing you can feel with a fingernail. I’ve been chatting with Glenn at Coleman and I’ll probably order a new set for next season as spares. They aren’t cheap but they will make anything you need at a very reasonable price in a week. As for my problems the PFC pads have been rocking it. I saw a few cool pictures of my rotors glowing red coming into turn 12 at Road America in June. I also upgraded the re

  4. Still looking. Unfortunately the one in Houston didn’t work out.
  5. Looking for one. PM me please. I have a 24’ United UXT I can trade for someone looking to downsize.
  6. Yeah going to do this ASAP. Just need to do a lot more stuff too but thanks for the advice. Looking at PFC 01, Raybestos ST44 and Hawk 60/70.
  7. the suspension is tight. It’s all new spherical bearings. Rotors were new this race. Car makes 425-450shp depending on the tune I run. Tires are 245 R7 Hoosiers up front and 275 R7s out back. I agree the wilwood pads seem to be the culprit. I had street compound pads with some M5 calipers and it was okay but faded bad so hence the upgrade. DtC70 or 60 are an option as are PFC 01. I’m looking for a good friction level that stays fairly constant with temp rise that I can modulate. I flat spotted my front 2 tires going into turn 12 at Road America last weekend trying to modulate but the pads
  8. Car is a 1985 BMW 635csi, it's big, heavy and especially nose heavy. I race in SVRA, VSCDA etc so not hyper competitive but I took first in class last weekend even with a horrible brake judder. Here is the current setup. Front Brakes: 13x1.4" Coleman Floating rotors with AP Racing CP5800-10SOL 6 Piston Calipers Wilwood Polymatrix A Compound Pads Rear Brakes: 12.19x.81" Fixed 2 piece rotors with Wilwood Superlite 4 piston calipers and Wilwood Polymatrix H Compound Pads Master Cylinders are AP Racing with a bias bar no booster 7:1 pedal ratio. First of all the c
  9. 3 sets of 17” 8/9 Staggered E39 wheels. Fit on E36 and E24 just fine. http://bigcoupe.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=30408 Set of 225/245 Rains Set of 245/275 R7s with 10ish heat cycles. All in the Waco area.
  10. Well the BMW will be done in paint just after Christmas, couple days to assemble the trim and install the fire system and I'll be needing a shop to apply the graphics. I've already got them printed from a shop in Europe but I just need a place that knows what they are doing to install them. I've gotten a few prices in the neighborhood of 1000-1800. That seems a bit high or am I just under estimating the amount of work involved here? I've attached a picture of the graphics I've got. Thanks Andy
  11. Thanks, i've also got Paul May as a reference who I think will be the chief tech inspector for the january school.
  12. Haven't heard anything yet, thanks for doing that. I got a good set of R7 scrubs ordered today for school and two brand new sets of R7's coming in as well. Now I just need some SRF, more plugs and lots and lots of redline 40wt.......
  13. Yeah thats what I read too and you are correct, the flywheel is about 2" forward of the driver's feet/pedals. I have an email into Stirling to get his thoughts. Thanks for the response Matt.
