moderator edit: this is the later portion of a split thread. the first half discussed that our rear brakes use both pads and shoes. the thread then turned to a discussion of how to park when your brakes are hot after a track session.
so maybe this thread should have been how to stop/park after getting off the track. if you use the regular brake to stop in your parking spot, you'll leave the pads sitting on the rotors, which is not what you want. with the separate parking brake system, you could use that to save your pads/rotors (with hughbob's precaution in mind). or you turn the engine off while rolling in to your spot, put it in gear and release the clutch when you want to stop. which do you do? or is there another way?bitabur said:Leave it in gear, forget the ebrake.
