You get that beast out on the track lately? I really enjoyed reading your thread recently, good shit in there brotha!
It has been to both NOLA and Barber...its up for the winter now though. Working on obtaining a few more goodies for it before spring.

Just waiting for schedules to come out so I can make my plans

BSTs when they rolled up





Ended up slinging an older R1's rear caliper setup on as they came from a '98 bike

These new Brembo calipers represent another step forward in the evolution of Brembo calipers: their innovative quality lie in the use of topology optimization* deriving from the experience acquired by Brembo in the competition sector. With the aid of this pioneering software, it has been possible to optimize the geometry of the caliper body, revolutionizing the accepted notions of competition caliper styling and raising the engineering and performance level of the product still higher.

Machined entirely from billet stock using the latest CAD-CAM technologies, these GP4 RR and GP4 RX callipers are much lighter than comparable components now on the market, and features a mass/stiffness ratio second to none in its class. The caliper body is designed with a central bridge structure, which also has the effect of increasing its overall stiffness.

Brembo's experience at the top of world motorsport championships is reflected directly in the nickel-plated body, which not only creates a highly attractive look but has also allowed the designers to make machining tolerances even finer, achieving added benefits in terms of performance and operating precision.
