Still Grounded

I'm still waiting for the new gearbox for the Fury, not being able to drive it is frustrating given the lovely weather, but I was promised the first week in June, so it's not late yet. But while the car's laid up, I've been upgrading. I'm afraid the redundancy pot is lighter to the tune of a set of alloy 4-pot brakes, with new pads & discs.

The object is to reduce the "unsprung weight" ie that bit of the car not on the driver's side of the suspension. The discs themselves are 1/2 kilo lighter, while the brake calipers themselves are 4 kilos lighter each side. They also look much nicer - which is important with brakes - ahem.
