it firmed up a bit. I wouldn't say a huge amount, but good enough to get good pedal feel. They started to squeal a little bit, don't know why though. I didn't think HPS's were supposed to make too much noise.

the rears were squealing? yeah....HPS don't. There is some brake goop you can put on...probably wouldn't hurt to do that.

wouldn't hurt to bleed them again and try some Motul or something, especially after a track day. That might firm things up more. Then again, could just be the HPS too

Track day video in case you wanna watch. And yes, I'm still running in the green group.

This vid has a good amount of passing, supercharger whine, and tire noise.

Part 1 is up. I'm still waiting for part 2 to process.

Does anyone know the BB code to embed youtube vids? I can't find it.
