But if you aren't tracking it at all then I wouldn't worry about those for now; try the other items first and see how they feel, then add more if needed Depends on what you are looking to use the car for. Aftermarket sway bars will help reduce this. I've been researching these for a while. Once you've got all that sorted out, then you can explore more power. I will cross reference some part numbers tonight for u. I added this to my R and the difference was immediate; firmer pedal and less play or uncertainty in how the brakes will react. You're the poster child for big brake kits - more than the show boys.
Run 'em hard, make 'em smoke! I am hoping to put my new brakes on Sat or Mon. This is a great way to lower your car without breaking the bank or making your car too low. The car did great, and the Hawk pads did great and are good for another event they are also track-only as they are quite noisy. You're the poster child for big brake kits - more than the show boys. I am looking to switch out my stock rotors for slotted and drilled rotors. Race pads tend to need to get much hotter to be effective and they also tend to be very noisy, especially when cold.
Any options for the rear? Stock brake lines are made out of rubber and can flex when being used hard giving the pedal a squishy feeling. Hi damo, where did you source the calipers from? A long legged highway sleeper This is a first post on your forum. I just resurfaced my rotors instead of getting new ones. I looked into the R32 brake upgrade, but the rotors that came with the set were not slotted and or drilled. I have done the three things you mentioned and I wish I had done it sooner. It is no where nearly, remotely, close to being a track car. The stock intercooler is fine until higher power levels are reached.
But if you aren't tracking it at all then I wouldn't worry about those for now; try the other items first and see how they feel, then add more if needed Thanks man, I'm looking into that Tyrol kit right now. I will be constantly updating this and doing a build thread soon. I had to spray them red which was fine on the street but the paint burnt off on the track. They're spongy and fade easily, and with the stock continentals they do not inspire any type of confidence. Some systems have heat shields or actual intake boxes that also help reduce the heating of the intake air, this adds to cool air is denser air which makes more power. The ones I bought were from a 2.
Thinking about some brake upgrades and trying to keep things in balance. I bleed my brakes at least twice a year and before every track day I do. I might do some auto x. Clutches: a stock clutch is not meant to be able to stand added power. I have looked online but still would like to know what you folks think. These tunes can be done in around an hour, you would need to find a software dealer in your area and take your car to their shop.
The fluid did its thing, but the pads were toast after the event. Always match the rears to the front to maintain balance. Hope someone else here can find this useful! On my wagon all I had to do was caliper brackets and backing plates. Adam's Rotors are a very high quality rotor but they will not change your brake's ability to stop. They do this by increasing the diameter and flow of the piping allowing for more air to enter the turbo. I would like the R32 brakes? Personally, if I do end up taking this more seriously, I might instead invest in a track car to punish and leave my daily driver alone. Significant power upgrades are cheap and cheerful with the 2.
Any options for the rear? Personally not a fan of Hawk street pads though many others seem to like them. They're spongy and fade easily, and with the stock continentals they do not inspire any type of confidence. I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I thank you all in advance. I do get brake fade but then again I'm pushing the car out of it's comfort zone. I added this to my R and the difference was immediate; firmer pedal and less play or uncertainty in how the brakes will react. A Turboback by itself will give your car more power and a much louder sound, typically most cars need a computer tune as well to gain the most out of the exhaust.
Not sure of the interchange but. So, I was thinking the 312mm? If you aren't comfortable with this work I recommend having a professional install it! Effectively the same as the brake stiffening kit from Tyrolsport to improve pedal feel. Mine came from Lithuania and I found them on ebay. I believe mine are 288's front and 260mm rear. If you're forking out the cash for the turbo, I'd say don't skimp on the brakes.
In the process, we've also shed an enormous amount of unsprung weight 33 lbs. In my opinion, stay with oe bolt-on parts. On my wagon all I had to do was caliper brackets and backing plates. I might do some auto x. If you have the original install it by pushing it into place up top then thread the bolt in place to hold it on. I do a lot of driving might as well and try to enjoy as much of those miles as I can.
