All of the brake force then? Looks like the pad rides a little high on the rotor. Does the pad overhang the outside of the rotor?

Unfortunately the wilwood calipers aren't deep enough to totally leverage all the rotor surface available. There's gonna be 1/2" of rotor face unused, so you'll want to avoid drilled or slotted rotors, not that you would want them anyway.

I have a new brake line en-route, can't wait to try again. Glad they work good!

<p>I did have one issue at the track day. Towards the end of the day towards the end of sessions 4th started getting hard to get into if I wasn't rev matched correctly. Going to try new fluid before MRLS and see if that fixes it. But I wonder if my fluid was getting too hot. I know motorcraft is sex for low temps, but what about at high track temps?</p>

I'm not sure about Motorcraft but I've had pretty good luck with AmsOil manual trans 75w-90 GL4 and for the diff Severe Gear 75w-110 GL5.

I try to change it once a year, and since the car gets driven by at least two people every event it's had the equivalent of 6 seasons (where one season is about 10 two day events) of track use on it and still shifts fine.

Also I'm pretty sure it's what Emilio uses so if it's good enough for endurance racing it's good enough for me.

I have motocraft if you wanna try it, just replace it with my throw out bearing. I think it's $22-25/qt.

Just check amsoil site for dealers, they're all over. I think mine is gone.
