I've got the Akra X-pipe and the stage 2 tune already, so those are Autumn plans.

I need better corner exit to compete with those GT3rs's.
What are the MCS replacing?

that is going to be nice! i'm finding this car is still relevant at the track, but it is starting to fall behind with newer cars it used to be competitive with.
i know its not a race, but i still want to be faster than the other guys.

Had to give a pass to a c7 grand sport at laguna last week.

For some rear ends, you don't have a choice but to leave room.

That's only because you aren't supercharged.

it was because of oem suspension and tired tires. the brake problem didn't help, either. a better driver would have probably helped, too.

A couple datapoints from this weekend...

The Porsche rear brake ducts have hung on especially well. I believe they are reasonably effective too. All for under $30/pair (+zip ties)...



My F80 rotors, after 6 events with Ferodo DSUno pads have literally no lip between the swept and unswept area. I've put on winter street pads that sweep the whole disc and I'm unconcerned. These ($500/pair) F80 front rotors are a phenomenal deal. I can put that $$$ towards the stripped oil pan threads and the new water temp sensor harness.

Not yet, but they've put some orders in the parts system for replacements on a part they're redesigning. It's one of those things that makes me go "hmmm."

Good to hear.

Did you do anything with fronts?
(sorry if I missed it if previously posted)

Any tips on finding a pad spreader for my BBK that won't cost hundreds? Will start doing pad swaps myself. I saw roastbeef posted one that was nice but expensive. Any good cheaper ones?

i have the lisle "quad" caliper spreader and i don't like it. works ok, but it flexes a little because it isn't rigid. i'm prepared to pay the $200 for the girodisc spreader. i enjoy products that work... what a concept. lol

I have the orange Girodisc pad spreader and I like it, but just as a side note, the wide kits like the Essex Radical 9668 kit with the 25mm pads are actually wider than the Girodisc can go. I had to keep a used-up pair of pads to act as a spacer so that I could press the pistons all the way back.
