    Nice track gear, what pads are you using? I went on at combe with mintex discs and pads and found them to hold up to the abuse rather well

    Whats the difference between the camber shim you bought and this one

    Are those discs for real? The grooves don't even vent! Where did you get the camber plates from, though? Could do with some for the turbo fish tank!

    Only going for EBC Yellows mate dont need nothing much and still want to use it on roads so dont fancy a track compound like on the others as the noise and dust is unreal! I got the camber plates from my local dealer (brown and gammons) who make and use use on there own race cars. I think the one's you have need setting up for adjustment etc the ones i have are just bolt on and job done

    Dont vent... there only meant to be a mm or so deep to allow the pad face to be cleanned and let build up of gases escape, there the same design as the full race kit on the RS2000 but just not a two piece floating disc

    Doesn't mean it's right lol. Gasses on grooved should vent out the ends ideally, allowing pressure build up and therefore heat. Otherwise they're just glorified dimpled discs, which we all know, are a gimmick.

    I dont see how you can have a point when AP Racing, Alcon and Performance Friction all use a "tear drop" pattern for there professional Motorsport disc's which do not go to the edge's off there disc's

    http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/motors...us-brake-discs
    And these look like "dimpled" disc's in PF's motorsport catalogue

    Hispec's "full race" disc's

    Lol. Owned steve220.
    Vented means that its a double layer disc anyhow with the vents between front and back portions.
