I was at Thunderhill and apparently the Brembo brakes on Nitto NT-05s proved to be too much for the Powerflex bushings to handle. The outer bushing popped off on the track - which my friend almost ran over. The inner bushing was all that was left and had me hobbling back to the pits. Save yourself the headaches of FCABs popping out. RE FCABs seem to be the ones that are holding together. Contact Walter@VMWERKS for pricing on them and he even presses in the metal outer bushing for you for a small cost making DIY even easier!

We just had two sets of Powerflex E46 M3 FCABs with this same failure with only a single weekend (or less) of DE. Two separate cars. Same result. Obviously they are crap...
