Default Playing with brakes and centerlocks

I spent some time with bsavino and his GT3 last weekend watching him change pads and do a brake bleed at he prepares for a few days at Summit Pt.

Check out this handy tool from TraqJunk that allows you to press and lock the pad retaining clip. This way you can use both your hands to remove the main bolt.

I need to get one of these, just haven't gotten around it yet.

Btw, what pads is he using Pete?

I believe Bman will there this weekend, but I hear he is going to take his white Cayman and not the GT2.

Pagid blacks. I've heard of the yellows but I guess the blacks are even more aggressive. Screeches like crazy on the street!

I will be there tomorrow but not running either car. Going to help a friend racing in AI and the PCA clinic.

FTS, I have one of the Traqjunk clip seperators if you want to try it.

Be on the lookout for my buddy Bart then, he'll be running with the RED track wheels on his Basalt Black GT3!

Used to be a big BMW person, but we'll forgive him...

Are you instructing or just working as track-side crew?

Does that clip works Brian? It is not expensive, if it really works, I'll just get one.

Got it, good eye mooty. We went around afterwards to pop all the pins out. I was looking forward to the food at this point and put the camera away...
