"This was my first time tracking auto club speedway after installing the AP racing BBK front and rear. ACS(auto club speedway) is notorious for its high speeds and heavy braking zones which can end a session in just a few minutes if your braking system isnt up to the challenge. With the AP kit, I felt zero fade. Zero difference in the brake pedal. No more left foot pumping the brakes for this track. Hitting speeds of 170 and entering braking zones at 135-145 mph with full confidence that my car will stop with consistency for a full 20 minute session over and over again. Having this advantage of top speed and the superior braking system, I was able to win in my B2 class and also set the fastest time of the day out of all of my fellow competitors in Bimmer challenge."
