Ahhh...finally some sun in Edinburgh!! I decided to celebrate by taking my pride and joy out for a burn. As per usual, the A198 out towards Gullaine delivered the goods in terms of a decent car to challenge on the twisties. Last time it was what I now know to be a 1993 Audi S2 (all 220bhp of it - the closest match Ive come up against so far); today it was a Volvo S60 2.4T. Mmmm...Volvos have come a long way, and Id certainly have one - not as sharp a handler as me ol Valver, but was keeping up with me all the time on the straights (dare say it would have had me above the ton).
**Anyway, to the point...**
Yes, my brakes felt crap today. The initial bite just wasnt there. Pads and discs seem OK - theres only 7k miles wear on them all round. Is this maybe something to do with callipers, or just the heat?? Any other ideas? Brake fluid is fine and no leaks.
Second question is, how urgent is it to get a leaky CV joint gaiter and failing lower front anti-roll bar re-done? Whats the damage cash-wise too??
Cheers for any help
