EBC HH Sintered pads are the best you get. They really improve braking performance and feel, especially on track.

You may also want to use race spec brake fluid. I do a lot of track days on my SC and find that I need to bleed/replace my brake fluid on a regular basis as I have been known to 'boil' my brakes on a 2 hour session....not fun when you are at the end of the main straight only to find the lever comes back to the bar:eek::eek::eek::eek:

A two hour session:eek: Most I've ever done was 45 minutes and I was dragging my butt the last 5 hoping for the checkers. Do replace my fluid on a regular basis, use Valvoline Synthetic Dot 4, and have had good luck.

EBC HH +1, except in the rain.

Answer...you don't! I get 30 to 35 minutes then need a refil (fuel and lucozade).....then straight back out before the tyres cool down too much! For clarity I usually run around 10 litres per fill and that does me around 25 to 30 miles on track :eek: Red line + open termi's = large fuel bill!

I tend to do open sessions of either 2 or 3 hours, so you can go in and out as much as you please...until you run out of fuel or slide down the track etc!

gotcha!
try running a 6 hr race...kill 2 rears, 1 front and 24 gallons
each rider tries to do 1:30 or more on the bike
