Brake tester needed

I need one rig that is currently running our pads and rotors on 35's with 2000 up unitbearings to test some new rotors.

Daily driver, need to be reasonably satisfied with your current performance out of the brakes so we can get an A/B comparison.

As soon as I figure out the most suitable candidate, I'll ship you out new rotors and pads, you do the break-in, and then work them hard so I can see if they make a difference either way in performance.

This is not because we think the other stuff is not performing because it is, I just like to stay ahead of the curve slightly and the only way I can do that is through continual testing.

Who is my guinea pig?

Are we still eligible if running Vanco BBK? I think I meet all your other criteria. You know I tested BM pads for you originally so would obviously be happy to continue to improve.

Nope, you need the stock brakes. Yes, I know you helped tremendously with the first round of testing and it's appreciated.

I'm sending out a set already for the 15" Vanco Kit, which one do you have?

I have the 46mm calipers.

BTW, thanks for the advice on how Wayne should tune my Foxes. He and I talked about about usage out here on the East Coast and I think he ended up firming up the main stack in the rears a little more than the "medium" tune, but was a good start.

Damn, guess I'm out too

Keep me in mind if you need somebody, I'd be happy to be a piggie.

I'm game.... I'll look for any improvement as I currently can't run Vanco's with RCV shafts. I live on Hollister Hills ORV park doorstep, our proving ground for new products. I know the limits of Centric rotors and BMP's on my rig. Although adequate on road, they fall short for me on the rocks.

I guess I don't meet the 2000 and up unitbearings requirement with my 97 haha. I meet all other requirements and could stop by this weekend. Hopefully I can head up anyway to help out. Thanks Colin
