Brake pad suggestions

I think it depends on what you're used to / what you like. If it were me and I liked the feel of the stock pad for everyday, I'd stick with it. My limited experience with 2 German cars has been very good stock pads but plenty of dust. Tried a ceramic (Akebono)...they gave far less dust but the brake...

*TAPS* - Dog Track perfection - 11/3/18

Loved the dog track change of pace but then... the curbs and unexpected guests.

Another event where my best run was my smoothest.

Thanks to all who made this a fun one

Moving to M2

fwiw both plates and adjustable ball joints get it there. Front springs are pretty soft too.

Oct 6 - Dunnellon Championship Event #1

Yeah, that's because we don't have indexes for the combined Dunnellon Championship classes. We could make up something, but IMO, with so many classes lumped together, it would be totally inaccurate. thanks. Makes sense. Still wrapping my head around Steve's best. 34 wuuuuutt? :respect: I think I hi...

FAST Autocross - Oct 6 - Dunnellon

We're edging up towards 50 drivers for this event! I expected more in the PAX class. Y'all afraid of Ben, or what? yes...and don't tell Ben he's beating best M4 times...at least not for a few more weeks. When he's in earshot, mention to someone that you heard about someone else's chipped Fiesta blo...

Just had an alignment at Advance Performance Tire and Wheel

traction control is definitely off at events and for undisclosed location experiments.[emoji1732] That's a ton of castor for a car that already has 7+ degrees. It sounds like traction control is actually "off" and lets the wagon's rear swing around without cutting throttle or straightening out the c...

Yep seemed like an easier to drive fast car. At the event, my skill level just couldn't keep up with my enthusiasm...my lines weren't there...but wow fun course. There's more camber to be had up front with current parts, and as you know, I plan to replace front springs to get a little more travel - ...

I would bet you could swap in an Evo independent rear suspension. okay, maybe not :) * Steve did well, almost caught Loren. He was close enough on 2nd or 3rd run. Soroya was right there too. He rode with me on my runs as I seem to be forgetting things lately (almost on Medicare ya know) and thought ...
