    I've never driven on road course track and I'm chomping at the bit to get there - It's not to say I don't drive hard I have some very technical short cuts on my way home from work and exercise the car well thru them. I always here the importance of brakes and I have to ask this question because brakes in the old days where always a second thought...are extreme brake setups more important for automatic cars vs standard cars or is it equal?

    Bring it by my place Ron and I will get them cleaned up for you. PM me and we can make an arrangement for time. If my car was a summer toy and had the occasional track event I would definitely move up to the RBF 600.

    Motul fluid held up but definitely need changing.
    Hawk hps - disappointing- spongy ,brake fade initial bite good but that disappears- cooked them too
    but I guess it got the job done I didn’t go into the grass mind you I don’t go “ Brad Speed” lol

    - also for you newbies for data and video I used TrackAddict- free version lets you record 3 u have to delete to record more- $11.99 paid version unlimited
    U can Bluetooth your obd2 as well and wifi external GoPro




    oh and my rims are now flat BLACK thanks HPS lol

    ^^ TrackAddict works great
    Works by gps so type your track name and it comes up- I ended up buying it
    Speed and course lay out is on screen and g force, brake
    Mind u it probably not as accurate as what you real racers have but for recreational use , not disappointed one bit
    Plus video output looks cool.

    Have not stepped up to r-comps yet as I drive to the track on my tire setup. I’ve always run the Nitto NT-05’s and have been very happy with them on my set-up. I’ve had 2 sets so far. Could have gotten another season out of the last set, but I must have run or slid over something that took some chunks out, and on one tire I had a groove that cut into the belts.



    Next year, going to be sporting a set of Nankang NS2r’s

    And G-Loc R10 pads on the Ford (brembo) rotors

    Hawk street/race pad is the best I've used yet. It's never faded and has excellent cold bite. Down side is its noisy and dusty
    I simply wash and wax my wheels regularly to keep the dust from wrecking the wheels

    For brake fluid I use Mopar dot4. Never had any issues with it and if it's good enough for a viper and SRT vehicles then
    It's good enough for me lol

    Michelin pilot super sport tire has been the best track capable tire I've used . Lots of grip both dry and wet so you don't have to worry about getting caught in the rain. I've got 7 track days on mine the the tread wear is awesome without any chunking

    In regards to the CG lock
    I looked and could not find it for sale and in stock, websites down and it seems they are not around anymore.
    Couple companies make 3 point harnessess to use without a bar and bolt to factory locations but the cost and install wasnt worth it to me.
