new discs and pads went in/on over xmas.. (alarm is behaving still!)



i'd noticed nothing in light use and the retaining screws required some work with a persuadertron 5000 to remove but the old red stuff pads came out like this




not quite factory

so dixcel pads in with stoptech discs all round (i wouldnt bother with the rears in hindsight), castrol CRF fluid based on RayDave's experienced (read owd bugger, wiley heed or race driver turned ace mechanic depending on your perception - he's actually all 3 ) advice

the system now lacks air thanks to a gravity bleed, i would heartily recommend this approach to the lone @ home (i could not convince my 6 yr old to help) spanner monkey, sucking out the dirty shat from the reservoir before you start is a must, it was rank

wideband sensor has died again.. they dont seem to last very long

other than that she's going well. I am pondering putting the Skunk2 back on this car from my NA and using this exhaust on that car.. this one made good power on that and i still have the maps for full nutter mode

the Dixcel Z are evil. fact

they destroy discs and are noisy so swapped back to road pads, red stuff again. much calmer.

i get the NA one back soon, will post up pics of that. i then plan to put this back to ultra obnoxious trim with the skunk and its map with decat.. new wideband at the same time and i want to fit a bettee catch can which is not vented so it stinks less..
