Oh Ok, thanks for the info.

@ssjr0498: A larger disk does not always necessarily mean better braking. There are other factors like the calipers & quality of pads etc & a combination of all these defines the breaking ability of the brake setup.

Sounds like a lot of fun. What kind of tires are you using on your Apache? ..and please explain this scrubbing process.

@Redrage: Lap record for my class (125 to 160cc 4 stroke - stock category) is in the 1:21's by factory teams (Apaches and Xtreme's)

@Mpower: I'm running MRF Zapper tires, they are a hard compound tire built more for long life so they take a while to bed in before you get maximum grip. Scrubbing means running several sedate laps to scrub a thin layer off the tire surface.

Forgot to mention, 160cc 4 stroke stock category is divided into Expert and Novice classes, I race in the novice class. The 1:21 lap time is from the expert class. In the novice class the best time is a 1:24 by a TVS factory rider

The fiero is a lighter bike so it cane handle the braking with those disc's (the standard fiero never came with discs, mind you, the first version ones) , So i was curious about the ZMA braking as people who have ported the bike struggle on brakes. I agree if its for a drag then its not a problem provided there is enough braking distance. But Track racing is a different thing.

Any idea if imported tires can be used. Some of the sportbike tires are as good as cut slicks.

Yes imported tires can be used and the factory teams have been using them this past year.
