When GWR went to Chuckwalla on March 10th, I had a couple upgrades to my MSM.
For the brakes, I had installed the Stoptech BBK sport size and installed Stoptech rear rotors.
I used Stoptech's 309 compound.
For sway bars I installed a set of prototype bars with four holes of adjustment on the front bar and three adjustment holes on the rear.
The brake kit took a little getting used to, as I had installed the night before the track day (it was very short notice).
The pedal feel was a little vague and I had a couple of lockups early on. I blame part of this on the fact I had installed less than 24 hrs before, and I now feel the car needed the brakes bled again. The pads worked in a linear fashion, increasing in friction as I increased pedal pressure. Another thing that I figured out towards the end of my last session and used in my fourth and last session was to tap the brake pedal a little before my braking zone. I was doing it to get better pedal feel. I was told afterwards about pad knock back. I had floating rotors, so the pads were probably getting knocked back from the rotor and my tap on the pedal brought the pads back to the disc. Doing this the brakes felt much stronger.
I started with the sways on full soft and had lots of body roll. After going one hole from soft in the front I lost 4 seconds. after going to the middle hole on the rear bar I lost another 3 seconds, and after the last session another 1 second. Learning the brakes and adjusting the sways to remove body roll helped me immensely.Stoptech BBK Sport SizeStoptech rear rotors
