brakes

Brakes should not squeel wether you brake hard or not. I think that they did not put any anti -squeel copper grease in between the pads and calipers. After fitting they should be worn in to settle (not brake hard for a few days), then all should be A OK!

Thats the same thing i was told... and believe me... if you road shotgun with me you'd get what i like to call "the fear"

I drive my QP about as hard as anyone can...
(sometimes even terrorizing quiet suburban streets)

we'll see how it all pans out!
THANKS

Brake pads on performance vehicles are a harder compound out of the necessity for quick deceleration, You can replace them and it would be 50% chance of improvement. That's just the way these hard pads are. The toughness of the compound is the reason less brake dust is seen on the wheels, as compared to a stock BMW, Mercedes etc.

Thanks for that gem. I was wondering why the wheels on the Masher were so much cleaner than my other cars
