^ thats right, and using better brakes and or materials will enable you to get closer to that tyre threshold, and repeat it.

or perhaps you'd like to sign and send this letter..

Dear Bernie,

You do realise that F1 would be much cheaper to run if they all used steel brakes, those carbon jobs are an utter waste of money, they don't do anything that steel brakes can't do.

From Peter.

Well?

Car was in at the mechanic's yesterday but he had other big probs and didn't get to look at it.
As I've said before, this is giving me the shits. Hopefully it will be sorted soon.
BTW, this is my E34 not the E60.

The saga continues.... the mechanic has been playing around with toe settigs, firstly he dialled 4mm IN which slightly reduced the shudder on braking. Incidentally, it only shudders when the brakes/tyres get hot. The toe is now 1mm OUT and he has done a minor adjustment to the steering box to slightly reduce free play in straight ahead position and it has  eliminated the shudder. One thing I've noticed though is that through the brake pedal, I can feel some ABS coming on when it shouldn't be.

What concerns me is that I think what he has done has only addressed the symptom but not the cause.
Any thoughts?
