This time I took one of my coworkers' brother up to Willows. It was a very windy day, so the flight was a bit slower than usual, especially since I took a small detour through SFO for my passenger :)
Golden Gate Park
Presidio and Golden Gate
Balloon over Napa
Attila, at work
And I turned my car into an electric car. Well, actually not really it's more than my battery was having issues, so I was making sure I could start the car before the next session :)
So it was all fun and games until I realized at lunchtime that my rear pads were _very_ low (usually that doesn't happen, since they should get swapped at the previous service and they last multiple days). Anyway, it was clear that I had to swap them if I wanted to continue, which is a pain in the rear (30mn to cool down the brakes, and 1h to change the pads since it requires removing the calipers to get to them).
you can barely see the pad meat left
oh my, I had actually just run out, but thankfully the rotor didn't suffer
I got the brakes changed within 1mn of my session start, so it worked out, and I went back for more fun
I got down to 2:08s again, which has been my limit so far, although I started doing better after having changed my rear pads, although that was also the time where my front tires were already somewhat worn and not gripping as much in turn 2. I tweaked a couple of things I wasn't doing quite right, but dont' have much to show for it :)
For your fun enjoyment, I kind of passed when I shouldn't have on my very last lap of the last session (jump to 20:15). No harm done though.
The flight back was uneventful and quick with a 20kts+ tailiwind
