Hopefully putting track pads at all 4 wheels and some more serious compounds will solve this problem, but I will also try the shield mod to get some extra air flow at the brakes.
Please leave some feedback on the Carbotechs when you get a chance, I am interested in these. Did you choose the XP12s because of the weight of our cars?
