RS Turbo front brakes, er....

I think I might have found out why the RS Turbo brakes were not up to par, you might be able to spot it in the photo. It turns out that the calipers have been upgraded to S2 type but whoever replaced the discs and pads did so with those for an S1, 240mm v the required 260mm diameter. The pads, also being incorrect, didn't secure in the piston but did miss quite a bit of the disc. New S2 discs and pads have been fitted and I also got a bit of air from the rear right so I am hoping for an improvement. I might have sorted the fuelling issue too but have to get it back on the ground before I can fire it up and test it, there was no power going to the fuel injection module because of an incorrect relay.
