    Fun day at Blackhawk Farms. Based on recommendation here from FatBillyBob, I went with Carbotech brake pads and they performed nicely.

    Nice! I've wanted to get a car out to Blackhawk for some time now, I imagine it's gotta be pretty fun given how tight everything feels. Have you been to Road America yet?

    The turn at 1:01 of your video is where I got punted off the track at 75 mph on my GSXR track bike. 1.5 years later and my shoulder still haven't recovered :(

    Sorry to hear about your shoulder.....yes, I've been to Road America twice. One of the videos is posted in this sub forum. I love that track!

    Someday it'll get better, at least that's what the guy at the front desk of the hospital said :D

    Road America is a fantastic track, I imagine it's got to be very intense in an F430! Once I'm off the mobile phone I'll take a look around here for the videos!

    Looks like a place where you DO NOT want any wheels touching the grass.
