    2G Another DSM in time attack/road racing! Cooling ?s

    @338vr4 thanks man! Definitely getting there, need to redo the spring rates (for road racing you do not want the front to have almost double the rates of the rear), some aero, and it'll be a beast! Should give the Evos a run for their money :)

    Unfortunately in my TA class I need to run full interior, OEM glass, A/C, heater, and body-wise can only change the hood/trunk to non-OEM. Any other big ones? :)

    @tsiboosted bummer haha. Any tips on what were the biggest bang for buck in weight reduction? :)

    2G Another DSM in time attack/road racing! Cooling ?s

    @tsiboosted not at all! You provided some great data. I'm assuming you're not running full interior? Do you have a post/thread that details all your weight reduction? I sure wouldn't mind lightening the car up :)

    Best pads for DD/track

    @T2Small amazing data, that's exactly what I'm looking for! :) Half mile oval with 90-10 entry is RIDICULOUSLY hard on brakes haha. Most of the SoCal tracks are about 1.5-2.5 miles with at least a front straight. I'd suggest also trying the Project Mu G-four brake fluid, it's got some of the...

    Best pads for DD/track

    @2gmitsueclipse that's great to hear, which Carbotechs are you running? How much would you say is left? Outlander upgrade is just the OEM bracket and bigger rotors right? Is there a noticeable change in brake bias?I'm running the Achilles A123S, they're <1 sec off from RS3's but MUCH...

    Thanks for the detailed input @2gmitsueclipse! Funny you mention the ducting, I ran that on my Evo X. Ran the 3500 lb+ Evo X for a full season, and didn't have any issues with the Brembos btw.My overall question is whether I should try stock calipers + aggressive track pads, or just once &...

    Thanks Eddie and likewise! Now I'm figuring out my brake setup...will track pads be enough for time attack w/the 2g AWD calipers or should I go Evo Brembo's?

    Evo 9 OFH in 2g

    Very good points guys! It's from a friend locally who upgraded to a bigger cooler for track, so should be alright.Btw, with an Evo 8 oil filter housing (which only has the 2 3/8" BSP but not the extra 1/8" BSP port), I can still run an oil pressure sensor like the Autometer 2246 for DSMLink...

    OP, or anyone else, what rates did you end up with for track?I'm setting mine up for ideally a balance of mild (enthusiast/entry level class) time attack and comfy daily driving. Thinking 616/280 as the Swifts I plan to use are metric. Is that too much front spring?

    Evo III, Punishment Racing, or Swain-coated Megan O2 housing?

    Thanks for all the great input guys!My mistake here, read about tubular manifolds cracking and assumed that O2 housings would have the same issue. Also read something about some bad welds?Of these three, which offers the best performance (flow? or is backpressure a better measurement here)?
