Got my car on the skid pan today. Thought I'd share some photos of my car under heavy braking testing out the ABS.

or can you just pay to go have a play around there?

Haha looks like fun, Paul! Nice day for it :) Do you have any performance stats for us??

And where'd you do that? Is it part of an advanced driving course or... ?

Twas just a defensive driver course that we tryed to turn into an offensive driving course :) My work sponsors the Drive Safe campains so got a chance to go give the Leggy a spin.
I will be going to a proper skid pan day real soon.
I have slotted rotors and ebc greenstuff pads and the ABS was truely awesome. For the WA guys I'll let u know when I can organise a skid pan day for all of us once ur cars get here ;)
Oh and nice guess Gilly, that is the WACA, with Burswood behind ...

Once I noticed Burswood I worked out WHERE the carpark is, but that doesn't mean you can just go down there and fool around with your car... Especially as you're just a block from the Central Police Station! :(

Yea let us know, Paul - would be a fun day! :D
