Whoever did that must have a pretty sharp flycutter for it to clean up that good, looking at it beforehand I bet you didn't think it would turn out that clean. Laughing

I took my 1915T down the 1/4 one day, nearly ran off the long end of the track because drums suck. I literally hit the pedal and nothing happened. Turbos and disc brakes go hand in hand IMO, I wouldn' ...
