Got the new rotors outer rings last night. Will swap those over to the hats and do an oil change in a few days along with the new carbotech xp12 pads. Just in time to go to autobahn on Monday for some track fun

Some updates...

New outer rings for the front rotors, new carbotech xp12 pads for the front, and removed the cat from my exhaust. The pads were shot as well as the rotors. I'm quite surprised they lasted as long as they did.




Went to the track yesterday (autobahn in joliet). Interesting experience, I think I upset the bias on my rear brakes going with a more aggressive pad in front. I changed to xp12 instead of xp10 and got kinda squirrely on some of the turns when I was trail braking, never had an issue with the xp10 but good lord does the car stop now.

Also I guess I was putting a little too much g forces because the bracket for my meth tank completely busted and sent my tank flying across my trunk during the last session of the day. Had to zip tie rig it up for the time being until I can fab up a better bracket.
