    Hi,
    I'm having a problem with the brakes on the Oreca LMP2. I have very often untimely locks, I've already tried to change the brake pads, pressure and different suspension settings. Without finding satisfactory solutions.
    Thank you very much for your help.

    No ABS in the Oreca. Has to be treated as such. "Pump" the brakes.
    Also, brake early. This car is 'slow in, fast out'...there is no other way :)

    Lower the brake pressure. (For me about 86% is 'optimal' most places)
    Identify where your locking is occurring (they'll lock more often/harder when you try to turn in while braking...get your braking done early) and adjust bias (but that's only so effective)
    Don't try to brake 100%. Modulate.

    Perhaps even adjust your brake settings in controls. That will depend on the pedals you are using, no doubt.
