And please, this is really meant as a joke!....

The purpose of the new braking system was the lower the center of gravity since the pads are below centerline. The previous braking system was fine and the car was still very free. So the repositioning of the braking system aids slightly in handling!

the brake pad's are fairly lite, however having the brake pad's separated

by spring's free's the drive train from parasitic drag ,which of course

will allow the car to carry more speed in the corner's and every where else

Who the hell are you? you got balls to argue with Nigel? correct me if I were wrong, Nigel have more wins under his belt than you, that means he have more knowledge with the car than you and I don't even know if you have ever won or at least finish on the top 5 or at least top 30 on a major race, so if I were you to avoid humiliation I would stop.

by the way I still have my 960, and the brakes never is an issue, it never drag the drive train.

Who the hell are you to deny the guy his own opinion?

Maybe he's Michael Salven, who knows

Das ist aber nicht gerade die neutrale Schweizer Art

Anywhoos, Michael, you saw my old 960'08, and i think it was fairly evident that "Parasitic drag" did not exist whatsoever.

Yes of course springs to keep the brake pads separated will keep them from dragging, but you have to remember that the brake disc isn't fixed as it floats on the pins as well as the 2 speed shaft, so theoretically this "drag" still exists. So the previous design of having the plastic ring around the bulkhead/brake lever to keep the braking system from engaging by keeping it in the open position would still maintain its "free-ness." Plus before the old design allowed for all 3 moving parts to float freely which would probably create the same amount of "drag" as the new system does.

So, with that information, I'm pretty sure the braking system was designed for CG.

The reason why the new car is so free, is because of the precision in the new aluminum parts used in the drivetrain assembly.

But Nigel, You have to admit the 966 brakes different then the 960...

I never once said the 960'08 and 966 brake in the same manner. With the materials used in the 966's brake pads, the stopping power is much stronger right off the bat. But once the pads have worn in and hot spots are created on the rotor, the feel is very much the same.

Besides, when you drive your car, do you not change your chassis' braking setup to suit you and your driving style? So of course my car will feel the same as my previous.

It is true , that the disc , would float but the pads would also move

back and forth in the corners causeing drag, and yes cg was a factor

as was the spring and the way the cam was reworked , I belive it is a sum of

all part's that make this the best serpent yet. and Nigel you know

my 960 was super free

If your 960 was free, then why do you say there was drag? Use your logic Michael!

And do you REALLY feel the difference in the coefficient of drag between the old braking system and the new?


Whatever, anyway... Mr. Cupps, your previous 960 08' in comparison to the new 966 share the same geometry, so to answer your question, start with your setup from last years biggie and work from there!

Many of us are running Green front and Pink/Red rears. All new springs btw. But start from there!
