    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    Caliper covers? really??

    I am sure you can get a bigger set (off the Hyundai Coupe??) if you want better brakes.. shouldnt cost a great deal..

    I have Brembo discs but standard calipers which are pretty good, and the Clio 182 is said to out-brake a Ferrari 360 (according to Autocar..) not bad for a £6000 car..!

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    For one time braking performance, a lot of it comes down to the performance of the tires.. as most braking systems are capable of locking up the street tires... it is the repeatability / consistency lap after lap that's difficult to achieve..

    But I am not surprised that your Clio can outbrake a 360.. !

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    I think they are just heavier cars, so a lighter car like yours with great brakes should be able to top that. But who knows I am no electrical engineer.

    Then unfortunately, I can't take your opinion too seriously...

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0


    Ha.. not that 360s are bad cars.. of course not.. but most of them are not used for track and they were not sized / designed to handle the punishment.. for that, Ferrari have their more specialized model.. such as the 360 Challenge Stradale.. (and F430 has the "Scuderia").. for those hopped up version, they got significant upgrade in the brakes department.. (for F430, they later make the larger ceramic brakes as option on the "regular" F430)

    Compound that with the fact the 360 came out many years ago, so the tires that came with the cars back then might not be as sticky compared to today's performance tires.. so when you compare the braking distance (I assume that you see the braking distance that was recorded by some magazine when they first tested the car), that needs to be taken into consideration too.. !

    So while the 360 is still a higher performing car, but it is not a huge surprise if it lose out on the braking department to a newer / smaller / lighter performance car (that might come w/ pretty sticky tires)...

    Well I am going to a community college while on the job here. So I didn't technically do the "straight to college to get my degree after high school thing". as of now I am a drafter/detailer.

    RE: The Lounge: Version 4.0

    Associates, Bachelors or Masters. Civil Engineering is basically the same concept and scope of work, just a little more outside flat steel fabrication and design. Also, Associates-Masters. My father in-law went to Clarkson University for Civil Engineering for 6 years to get his Bachelors, and will be going back for another 2 years soon to get his Masters.

    Fixed gear, so if you stop pedaling it will brake essentially. It's an old track bike. I might add a brake just to make downhill easier but going to see how it rides first.
