Plans for brake upgrade? Or just stock upgrade?
I spoke with Wyatt at MCS and ended up with this configuration. It will be freaking amazing.

For brakes, as an intermediate solution, I'll be going with PFC direct drive rotors and pfc11 pads all around. If it isn't sufficient, I'll look into other options.

Ok GC has pissed me off in the past but that looks pretty rad, looks like you can put a wrench on that threaded part with the car on the ground or suspension just unloaded to make adjustments quickly?

Yup!



This is an F8x but the method is still the same. It can be done with it loaded and even easier if the wheels are in the air. It is a 13mm bolt.

Thanks for moving my thread Law ! I originally thought it would be better fit in the general as a journal but I guess I ended putting a lot more pics than I thought.

No worries, just doing a lot of much needed clean-up here on our side of M3Post.

Nice build & keep up the good work

Hi there,
I wanted to say Hi. You know my son Stephen from your zhpm days.
I recently picked up a new toy pretty similar to yours, except for the DCT.
Such a great car. This is also a great forum. A lot like zhpm.
I haven't driven it to much yet. Even in stock form, there is a lot to learn.

Awesome to see you on the forums Ken!

Stephen mentioned your awesome purchase via text. You will definitely have fun with this car!
