In this case, the owners would make the final call. This employee has been the one that has taken our services international so I understand the hesitation.

Just take her out for happy hour. Women clearly dress like that because they know someone is watching them.

Then again, maybe you shouldn't. I'm just a reckless person.
You were the only one that told me to go through with it. All of OT was like noooooo she's engaged, don't do it.

You're a good man.

Do you have braided steel lines to reduce expansion and pressure loss? Are your lines, braided steel or stock, older than 2 years?

For the most part we don't get anywhere near the thermal limits on brakes until we go with real racing tires.
My stock system isn't so stock anymore. I'm running Performance Friction 08 pads, Motul RBF 600 fluid, braided stainless steel lines and I have the brass caliper bushings for the front and rear that I haven't installed yet. Tires are Nitto NT-01s.

I figured if I was going to replace a caliper, might as well go big. Although, I do have spare calipers in the garage. I think they need to be rebuilt though. Might just put those up for sale.

I use a pressure bleeder. Seems to work pretty well. I'll use a deadblow next time I bleed the brakes. Which will be this weekend, hopefully.

Will do. We're trying to figure out how soon we can get someone ready to travel international before we term this guy.
