      Thanks Chris :Smile:
      Had a major issue with here just recently. Oil starvation due to oil pump failure on my last track day outing. All seems to be sorted now and running better than ever. Also new stop-tech grooved performance discs have been purchased thanks to Leo/Scott at H-tune with their black Friday deals. The oil pump failure was a worry but glad its all sorted out. Will be updating the thread very soon.
