yeah i know all that stuff about no brakes on. yeah move it back and forward to keep the pads from sticking. Oh and yeah think you right ian but i dont do cool down or slow laps ;.)

Well, he did a slower lap than the rest, but i reckon a few slow laps would be a better idea, just hope me new seal are still in one piece,

And, as for how they are now!! well they seem ok, the pedal is a bit spongy now, so another bleed through is on the cards...

Awesome, wish I had got a picture a couple of minutes earlier, they would have been "red"

Looks fine to me! i've been told my discs are glowing red hot braking into corners on track which I well believe, melted the 4 center caps of my alloys at the Nurburgring last year:D I'm also on Carbotech XP10s and never get fade, awesome pads:thumbup: As said a slow in lap or two cools everything down enough;)

having never seen them "just" after a hot session i/we never realised how hot they got, apart from burning the paint off the wheels and melting the caliper rubbers, so we shouldn't be surprised that things get hot I guess, we need to work on the cooling aspect a bit more, or get some bigger brakes so we don't have to use them as hard, they are still after all standard discs, and 15's cover them well so little room for cooling air around them... :smthumbup
