Your performance is limited by the tire contact patch vs the weight of the car. (Don't even answer if all you've got is the first order friction approximation.)

Upgraded brakes without upgraded tires first is almost certainly a waste of money. Were the old brakes incapable of locking the tires?

Brake upgrades will improve your control and brake feel. But the tire is the limiting factor.

I've spent years fixing the work of the likes of you. ;-) Seriously, nobody can maintain top quality when simply working too many hours and it's like mental illness, you can't count on seeing it yourself.

Unless we have more information about the relative size of projects and the long term costs of maintaining the projects we have no way of knowing if you are worth shit. We could presume that your boss knows, but that is hardly guaranteed. You could just be gaming a broken 'completed project' metric.

Who maintains all these 'competed projects'? The fact you complete multiple per year tells me they are, at most, side shows.

But in my experience most 'slut shaming' is done by other women who are unhappy at being undercut in the 'social market for pussy'.

There are a lot of women who get _all_ their power from their boxen. Sitting on gold mines and they know it.
