Thought i would give a quick update on the BMW 135i STU build project car. You can read the original write up here: Project: BMW 135i STU. I made a few changes this past weekend to the car putting on new brake pads and a new exhaust.
The stock brake pads were replaced with Cool Carbon pads which should give the car even more braking power. I’ve also noticed a much linear feel to the brakes, instead of an on/off like I had with the OEM pads. There is less initial bite which seems to make the braking more predictable. The Cool Carbon pads should also help reduce the amount of brake dust, which is a definite win!
The 135i will be competing at the NRSCCA Solo Event this Sunday (May 16th) at Lincoln Air Park. GotCone blogger Jon Simmons will be the event chair and course designer, so look for a National level course and a lot of fun!
