those are qualifying laps... if it was faster to not drive over them...they would do it. And thats what suspension is for... but we all know you are better than f1 drivers.

ABS hides so many braking issues with these cars it's not even funny ... I won't say that ABS is bad, because it really is quite effective, but it doesn't let you fully use the brakes, and does nothing to teach you proper braking technique. ANd the booster is just WAY overdone, so there is zero feel.

Just do it If you want a clean bolt on solution, check out Massive Lee's booster delete kit.
Does that mean no more power brakes?

What difference does it make if it's a qualifying lap or not? just shows how much you (don't) know. i am not better than f1 drivers, but you don't need to be very good to be in f1, just need $

yes it is!

Awesome - can't wait to see the car in person! Unfortunately, I doubt mine will be as show-worthy as yours...

Yes, stock M3 MC. You need to stand on the brakes to lock them up ... which is what you want. The only time you should be locking them up is in a panic stop, otherwise, good sloid pressure without having to worry about flat spotting your tires all the time. The modulation is also really good, as in, pressure is directly proportional to braking power.

I'm in the process of doing the booster delete using Massive Lee's kit. I'll post some of the findings. ScotcH has done a home made solution and got great results. The delete KIT also gives you an adjustable pedal.

Yes, Lee's kit is much prettier that our solution (but ours uses the OE MC, no need to buy a different one).
