Flogging my G8 GXP around Sebring...again

Took the G8 down to Sebring again this past weekend and got to try out my new Camaro Rear Brembo's. Problem is I like to trail brake the car into the corners and the rear tires kept locking up and causing some wheel hop. My suspension is all stock so maybe it's time to address that problem.

Here is some video to enjoy, I know I do!

Looks fun. It's just like Forza 3, only no rewind feature if you screw up.

Nice video. I love to do HPDE's. Have you thought about doing an adjustble brake bias? It maybe difficult to do with a car that has ABS.

It can be done by using more aggresive pads up front too.

Never thought about that. You are right about the suspension, your on the brakes unloading the rear, makes since to me.
