Thanks, Todd. Will call you tomorrow. Will PM if I can't find your number.
Re the brakes - the tech is claiming they are grooved and so can't be turned b/c would then be below 24mm. Plus he said turning not recommended for track use. If he's right my complaint is about the surface of the rotor not the thickness.
As for the bushings no one seems to know what's acceptable migration (if any) short of the control arm hitting the chassis.
FWIW, my tech used to wrench on an Exige in Pirelli World Challenge so I assume he knows what he's talking about.
