Don’t quite understand all the faff. A custom bell and proprietary disc is pretty common. Someone like BG Developments do it all the time.

Some more good news! Hawk are sending me some pads to confirm fitment, so we can have a readily available set of pads with a range of performances and costs. After discussing specifics with them, they're going to send me out a road pad that they think will suit, as well as a set of racing pads for track usage. Lots of excitment!

I meant everyone else faffing “ooh I wouldn’t do that” “insurance” etc.
Given that BG Developments will hold the insurance you say people are flapping about, I’m not sure it’s a good example on that front.

Regarding the type of brake assembly, it is a tried and tested concept that does offer a worthwhile upgrade.

Totally agree Zep and all my years in Motorsports most things modified with many of our own untested or proven modifications until out on the Rally Stages.

Unfortunately, they are not my parts, they are photographs from a site selling a race car in the US. I have a Gransport with warped discs and was looking for some improved discs for my car.

The company PFB looks to be a well-respected company, I was hoping someone might see my post and have more information.
This is the site below.

Yep, moderating on this forum is very light, in the > 10 years it has been going we are possibly still in single figures for bans, if not single figures teens at most. Better than that is the general non-banning moderation is also very light and really limited to nudity and personal offence. Even nudity is only to make it safe for work.

I am on several forums where images and even text are checked for copyright etc. this damages content and sharing of information on occasions.

Hayden has been banned as he likes to share screenshots of private messages from several people then circulate them on social and private media causing a shitstorm for all involved.

He then tried to rejoin under psudonames.

He had enough warnings but ultimately hung himself.

We were warned by ML when he joined.

As other current and ex mods have commented you have to go the extra mile to get banned on here but every once in a while you get one.
