Standard, factory fitted.
Rules allw holes for cooling, on rears.
To keep up the front, you will boil fluid, turn pads into apple crumble, and warp discs.
Add in there, severe radial micro cracks, and cracks to drum linings.
Treat them as consumables.

Funnily enough, when running in Sprints etc, against the massive bg braked 4 wheel dsced Z's runnng triples, bg mtrs etc,
The Group S repped Z's are as quick, if not quicker.
That is satsfying.

That's the difference between a car that weighs close to a ton versus 670Kg! None of that happens, the pads and linings last a few seasons, and the drums have been on the car for many many years, it doesn't boil fluid, nor warp rotors. It does however leak fluid from the rear cylinders....
