Instantly had no more rear brake issues. Didnít bleed them all
last season and I went back to 11.8 rotors (albeit 2-piece but they were waaaaaay better even before the rotor swap)
Hey Derek, welcome back! Any track plans with the Cobalt SS (or other vehicles) this season?

I just switched b back to OE hoses (Boss LS) after blowing out an SS. I also replaced both rear calipers due to leaks past the piston seals. I don't think I have any binding, but I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for the tip!

Les than 1 week away from first track day, followed by 2 other ones within 3 weeks.

Got my track pads on, GLoc R10s in the back at all times, and R12s up front for the events coming up.


Oh, and I'm running my Vents R-S3s in reverse direction in an attempt to even out wear. It will be scary in the rain tho
