    Default Randy Pobst vs. Brake Dust

    Would Randy blatantly shill?

    I'm thinking not. This could be worth a try.

    When I am 1% enough to afford a car with carbon rotors, I'd prefer to just hire a Corvette driver to wipe my wheels clean after every session, just to remind them of how superior I am.

    Without all that rotating brake dust mass on my wheels from now on I am guaranteed to always be on the top step of the podium. And I will have the best looking wheels for Levin to polish while he waits to become a 1%er.

    Apparently, overspray onto the rotors is not a concern?

    Car wax will work just as well but won't last 4 weeks.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    Nice to see a little bit of Thunderhill.

    Thunderhill is a hard-braking track?

    Every track is a hard braking track in a lambo I'm guessing.

    This was from version 1 of that YouTube video. The folks in marketing at ArmorAll thought a Lambo might convey the image of "performance" better than this car.

    I've been using that stuff for awhile now, on the track car and the daily. Works really good, but doesn't keep the worms away.

    May be worth trying on BBS-style wheels. Those are a PITA to keep clean. When I bought my e30, it had 15" basketweaves the PO never washed and he used PF pads a LOT. There was a 2-3mm layer of hardened dust on them that I could only remove with EZ-Off oven cleaner, and I tried everything else.
