I'm not really worried. It's just something I'm noting that was new.

The OEM/HPS never did that on my 1st gen and the OEM/HPS never did that on my 2nd gen. The 5.0s do seem to have tweaked the thin steel backing plate behind the pad material thick plate. Ever manufacturer probably does that part differently and that might just cause something I hadn't encountered before. I was mainly chalking it up to them not having been abused yet, still having factory-fresh chamfer, etc.

The noisy guy is on the driver's side, and I did have to tweak one of the spring clips on the driver's inside pad...so there's some correlation there.

yellow stuff and hoosierstones seems to be a new formula.

Did Evo school today, Phase 1. It was warm but everything held together. No brake fade for me, though another guy had them disappear on him. We weren't allowed to touch tire pressures, to reduce the variables...so I set them to 38 in the morning and assume they were low 40s hot all day.

Wish I had had 1 more run. I strung some stuff together and tried a diff line that ended up letting me go flat out for 2 elements on my final run, but I missed a second missing 2nd right out of the start. wouldashouldacoulda.

I was going to skip the 7/19 event to spend a weekend in Maine driving/hiking/NEFR, but I'm going to drive back Saturday night. Need more seat time.
