Pro Driver Seth Thomas shares his initial impressions on our AP Radi-CAL Brakes for his 991 GT3 RS08.21.2020
The Driving Club’s resident pro racer and chief instructor, Seth Thomas, recently installed our Front and Rear AP Racing by Essex Radi-CAL Competition Brake kit on his 991 GT3RS. With Seth’s many years of pro race experience, he is the perfect person to push our brakes to the edge and provide meaningful feedback. You can learn more about Seth and The Driving Club here. After some time tearing up Road Atlanta with his new brake kit (see pic below), Seth recently posted some feedback about it on Rennlist:
"It is nice to note the Essex/AP Racing complete front and rear kit saves 27.1 lbs from the unsprung weight of the 991 GT cars when compared to the iron stock brakes. This is a pretty big weight savings for the performance gained of having a better brakes system.
I have the full front and rear kit on my 991.2 GT3 RS and I can't say enough good things about the kit on the car. It is amazing with great feel and feedback from the pedal. I still need to get a few more laps under my belt at my home track of Road Atlanta to get the best feel for the system but in the 20 laps or so that I do do have at the track I can say this has been one of the best upgrades on the car. The pad selection with the calipers is so much better than what is available with the stock calipers. If you are considering a brake kit for your car to save your PCCB or to maximize braking compared to the stock iron brakes I would definitely recommend the Essex/AP kit."
