OK bad timing my car is at IND getting some extras, I tracked it once so does that count and thought the most important thing was the brakes, so that's my track mod...I plan to go out again but haven't had time yet...will post pics once I get the car back

Indeed. 3 track days with them so far (B group) and I am impressed. Brakes have become a non-issue. Which is exactly what I want.

Love it! Love it! Love it! The Forgelines look great. I have black GA3Rs for my track setup. Are those lightly used Continental takeoffs?

I'm running Forgeline EV3R's, currently discontinued for the GA3R I believe. Good, light, strong wheel though. And yeah, I'm using JPJP's Contis that he sells here.

355mm front and rear. 15mm front and 12.5mm rear spacers. Just for looks with my street wheels and I didn't take them off for the track. They are not needed for brake clearance. The 18's will not clear the 380mm rotor though.

Thanks.

I think the biggest rotor I have seen that will fit the 18" OEM's are the AP Racing 368mm's but they still need a spacer. I have been using my 18" for the track. I am just starting and still using stock brakes. I want to upgrade my brakes, but it looks like I'm going to need to buy new wheels as well.

Well the 355mm with 4-pot front calipers provides more than enough stopping power FWIW if you want to stay with your 18's.

Both me and FrenchBoy are running this setup and I am sure we are not the only ones.
