    Esso Supreme+ 93

    That will be very interesting to test it here in BC if it ever makes its way here

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Used my VADPro to diagnose a failing thermostat on the R. Fuck what a bitch this is going to be to replace.

    Test fit the upgraded brake system. It's a thing of beauty. 380mm 6 pot. Quick change pads titanium capped pistons and 18mm of pad material. The calipers are so light for their size too. They custom made a bracket and milled the caliper so it could fit my 18" wheel and it's hella tight.

    Good thing I’ve specced out a new set of HRE I want. A lot of the closure around this and finger pointing will come down to the failure investigation done by Baer. I don’t rake people over the coals just because I am mad at something. The result of the investigation will determine where all this...

    Got it back from HPA after the bakes completely failed and caught fire this Monday. Deets in the build thread, but good news! There’s no permanent damage.

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VRT Build

    Hey so go I want to preface this message by saying that both HPA and Baer (the BBK manufacturer) have been excellent through this whole ordeal. HPA paid for my tow and Baer is covering the investigation and gave me a fresh set of calipers to use in the meantime. It was an emotional week but...

    Gbot's 19R 2.5VRT Build

    Yep I agree. But is the blame on the rebuilder or did they fail for some other reason. Correlation is super strong here but data will ultimately decide where the finger gets pointed to. In that vein, HPA sent me an update and Baer is getting directly involved to understand the nature of the...

    What did you do to your mk7 today?

    Since there was brake fluid all over the calipers and rotors if it's hotter than its flash point the fluid will catch fire. The drivers side caliper did not catch fire since there was no fluid. I was not able to execute an appropriate cooldown lap to get the brakes cooler than the flashpoint of...

    I am reserving final judgement until the root cause is identified but yes. My confidence in Baer brakes is deeply, deeply shaken.
