I'm pretty sure I would be laughed out of the dealership. I just think it's funny what a lot of heat does to the paint on Brembos.

What tyre pressure are you running? Stock alignment? Looks like those Star Specs are rolling over pretty badly.

Nice Brownbos tho.

32. OEM alignment.

I was playing with differential settings on my last session and in Gravel and Snow, the additional understeer caused them to roll over a hair. I have no such issues in Tarmac.

Only the Evos though... I've never seen a Z or STi or Porsche with brownbos... It's like the red they use for the Evos has something in it that changes color from the heat.

Talking to the CTS-V guys, it happens to them too. They change from gold to silver (or vice-versa, I can't remember).
