What an excellent fun day you had with Stormster I guess - thanks for posting - I can see why you would need better brakes than OEM now - no way would they have lasted all these runs.

You just had to post the spins didn't you! hehe what an AWSOME day! Shame it was cut short by the brake pads getting low! I had NO idea the tyres got so low so quickly, there was NO tread left AT all by the end of the end of the day, totally slick! THAT'S my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Couple more videos of the day, one from the M5 vs GTR
YouTube - M5 vs GTR.mpg

One from my M5 vs the very excellent Evolve M5
YouTube - M5 Evolve vs M5 Supersprint

OH! And the beast now has over 103,000 miles on her
