Interesting Track Results

Thanks Rick, I'm looking into them.

My 3/8" torque wrench goes down to 10 ft/lbs, some don't no worries.
I also have been using the speed bleeder for over a year now and 12 track days without issue. The only difference between a normal bleede and the Russell's is the check valve that prevents air being drawn back in during bleeding. When seated both type rely on the needle/seat seal between the bottom of the bleeder and the caliper port seat. If the check valve breaks, the speed bleeder would still act as a regular bleeder.

Steve, only my opinion on the bleeders. I say this because I had a problem with them and also I look into what race teams are doing. I have not done any real testing. It is good that most are working but at this point I really do not trust them for track use, I have spoke with others that have similar problems on track with these. Keep a close eye them in the mean time and make sure they are not wet. To save a few seconds on a brake bleed for me is not worth the risk of thousands of dollars in damage, even if the risk is small it is still there.
