    New Brake System for Z8

    Sometime next week, you might want to look at my Instagram, @robertlinton1, to see the first screen shot of the new brakes for the Z8. Pretty wild and, of course, very lightweight.

    Cartridge would be delighted to make it but the cost would be enormous for one piece. For example, I would estimate tooling to be close to $100,000.

    6 Pound Battery

    Has anyone tried this http://www.voltphreaks.com/home.html -- 12V battery (VPHR18) that weighs 6 lbs. For the price, $675, on a per pound basis, better weight savings for a Z8 than many other things.
