    Low mileage for what I can only assume is a 1992. That said, unfortunately it’s not the case (low miles) in the alternate reality/upside down world of Ferrari Land where people are amazed at cars with 40kmi+.

    "The brakes are only good for 1 lap, luckily they are doing maintenance on the fast section so it's not open" LOL

    I know, it's just a little humor :) but brakes on a regular Testarossa on track day you can forget about it :)

    but if you only do a 15 minutes day track then it could be good :)

    any track day i have been to, in any road car, is usually in 10-15 minute slots.
    most road car brakes are good for that period of time provided that the fluid is freshy and the pads are good - and the tires are recent.

    at bondurant, when they were running corvettes, all they did was change the fluid and pads, and sent the cars out.

    U are right ! I’d be more worried about other mechanical failures on those. I think they can still perform great on a track with nice long sweepers.

    BBI brakes with track pads and fluid works fine. Ive never felt the brakes lacking on road and they do just fine for spiritted (not extreme) track work.
    Didnt seem like he was driving hard at all in the video.
    What we di see is that the "exoerience" in the 512 exceeds what avaialable in a modern, simply becase there is so much more going so much more inetraction anbd the car requires far more of you to go fast, not more in a bad way, but more in a good way. Like a p51 requires more than a f16.
