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

    hmm very interesting - is this something you need to do for WA rego?
    or can you just pay to go have a play around there?

    ...please explain!

    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
