My rears lock up before fronts on clean dry pavement. This isn't good. I think it happens because tire technology has advanced considerably in the 30 years since my car was made, and I buy the stickiest tires available. I'd love a driver adjustable proportioning valve, as is seen in F1, but funds don't allow it right now.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 367,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 30,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.
88 Jaguar XJS V12 93,xxx miles. I should be in the garage now.
