    Hey guys I decided to pull the trigger on some 2 peice light weight rotors and pads from racing brake. To give you some background I do a lot of 1/2 mile racing and have warped multiple sets of rotors and cracked pads from the high speed stops. Wanted to give some initial testing feedback on the RB OE replacement rotors and high temp XT910 street pads. I did a few consecutive 130mph down to about 40mph hard stops back to back after I bead them in. On the stock 135i rotors this would have warped the rotors and cracked the pads. The RB rotors and pads took it like a champ! No pedal fade no vibrations just a crisp bite at the pedal as I expected. These rotors performed flawlessly through my stress tests and I am confident they will not warp after the next 1/2 mile event.Since the high speed stops I have done 3 separate canyon runs with the new setup, they have performed flawlessly with no squeak and much less brake dust over the oem stuff. the pedal feel is different then stock, you really have to push harder on the pedal when coming in hot which is a little weird to get used to cus the stock pads bite so hard with such little input.... Prob why they warp so easy ha! These rotors are 2 peice so when it's time for replacement you can order the rotor rings by them selves and re use the aluminum hat to cut down on replacement costs. Also these rotors shave 10-12 lbs of rotational weight in the front and another 10lbs if you choose to buy the rears also. To me that is worth it in itself. I purchased a front set first cus I didn't see a ton of independent reviews on the full kit. After about a week with the front rotors and pads I knew I had to have the rears. The look and unsprung weight savings alone is well worth the cost in my book. The front pads retain the OEM brake sensor while the rear pads do not. As far as I know Racing Brake is the ONLY company out there that makes a 2 PC light weight OE replaceable rear rotor for the 135i. You can really feel the difference with these things on all 4 corners! the car feels really light on its feet and feels like it turns in quicker. If you purchase the front and rear rotors/pads together you save also to save some additional money at check out use code GS-10. :music-rockout: Here are some pictures....

    This is the second part of a comparison from Drivetribe. The previous comparison was of acceleration between this trio with the Mercedes-AMG C63 S coming out on top in the sprint to 150 miles per hour. The Mercedes-AMG C63 S will have a much harder time on the track against the other two. The circuit is Anglesey in the UK. A fairly technical course and long enough that we get to see what the cars can do. Here are the times: F80 M3 ZCP - 1:40.16 Alfa Quadrifoglio - 1:41.55 W205 C63 S - 1:41.73 Overall, the M3 wins. The transmission is praised as the best with great balance. The M3 is lightest car in the trio which is important on the track. It is simply the best rounded car of the three. The Alfa is in the middle and said to be fun but it is not as refined as the BMW. The transmission isn't as good either. It's a great effort but just does not have the M3's composure. The Mercedes-AMG C63 S brings up the rear but it is honestly commendable it is so close to the Alfa Romeo. It is a big brute compared to the other two. The AMG isn't as nimble but it does well despite the rear stepping out easily. Additionally, the gearbox has a bit of a mind of its own compared to the BMW's DCT. The M3 wins. Decisively.

    You should be familiar with this F80 M3 as it holds the stock internal S55 platform 1/4 mile record. A very potent F80 as it runs 10.1 @ 139 in the 1/4 mile courtesy of its Pure Turbos Stage 2 upgrade. Stout but then again so is the competition it is facing in this video. There are a pair of Z06's in the video. The C7 is obviously blown from the factory and it features bolt ons. The C6 Z06 has an unnamed aftermarket blower. Both are said to be around 700 whp. The C6 pulls the C7 nicely. The next run after the Corvettes is the ZL1 LSA said to be around 700 whp. Well, the F80 M3 handles it without a problem. Next up is the C6 Z06. The M3 gets on the throttle quickly and it opens up a lead which is held. It looks like the C6 Z06 may have hit the limiter. They go again from a higher speed roll and it is a better run but the M3 still pulls and wins. This F80 is running very, very well. F80M3 Mods list: - Pureturbos Stage 2 - Precision Tuning Motorsports BEF - Burger Motorsports JB4 - FBO - DDS clutch pack - FULL WEIGHT - Race Fuel - Stock motor - Stock Fuel systems

    Thought this was interesting. Need to see the polished finishes on more cars but some interesting color combos can be done.
