Good stuff Damian. Your setup is very similar to mine in terms of the dual master cylinders + balance bar. I love the sensor and gauge idea though for bias, I'll have to copy you on that - I think I can just connect 2 more pressure gauges to my AIM MXL and achieve the same thing!

EDIT: I am about to install some 200CFM 3" fans into my brake ducts on either side. Will be interesting to see the effect they have on brake cooling...

Great idea.

Well, i know that currently i dont need them, i usualy have the other issue, i need to block some of the duct to get the brake pad temp to what it needs to be since the sytem is working so well now...for the fronts that is.

Interesting, that's obviously a quality problem I am still using the stock T2 brake rotors which are only 10.9", so we'll have to see how it does at the track this Friday!
