Attached is the Blackstone analysis of oil from my MY00 with 88k miles after 5 track days and 4k miles. At least for my motor, I can't see any reason to change the oil more often. I am running an oil...

I'll add two thoughts:

Regardless of Honda's recommendation, I've seen many on this board check valves far before 100k and found some were too tight. When I bought my MY00 with 58k miles, most...

I think you're going to get a variety of thoughts about the stock brakes, but here's mine. The car was designed in the 90's to the level of tire technology available then. Remember that for a single...

I've been reading this thread with interest as I switched from 225/255 to 255 square last year and had the same experience as bgoetz. I'm faster than before (hard to quantify as I'm also improving as...

I do my own work so don't have first hand experience with a shop to share, but I see many members of the Miata club speak highly of Wolfgang at Coyote Motors in Boulder. He doesn't focus on Hondas,...

The front BBK shifts the brake bias forward 13% (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1QB-R9Mz0Pehm_MudPWQWM67ua1XxktuQcJq6tPJIKjk/edit?usp=sharing). That's not an insignificant amount.

Same for me - 11k springs tamed the AP1 rear. I even have an AP2 subframe in my basement, but after living with the stiffer springs, the travel is small enough now that I don't really notice bump...

This underscores how important it is to "dial in" modifications. Just bolting things on is typically not going to get to level of refinement expected. It's the attention to this type of detail that...

I didn't notice them to be much different than the DTC60 in terms of pedal firmness. But the initial bite is very strong - even more than the Hawks. Subjectively, it feels like the coefficient of...

A few things to think about:

Work on being smoother with your steering inputs. Sharp inputs can cause the tire to slip more especially if it's near the limit of grip.

If you haven't tried one, drive a 350Z. They are a bit on the heavy side, but comfortable and could make a decent DD. The V6 is torquey so makes stop/start traffic easier than some of the smaller...

I installed the Sakebomb brake kit and tested with my track and street wheels for clearance. The good news: TSW Nurburgring in 17x9 +63 clear. The bad news: Enkei PF01 17x8 +50 need a 3 mm spacer.

My apologies if I offend anyone, but I have to disagree. If you keep the same type of tire and just change from 16" to 17", I think you'll notice a difference, but it won't be large. Most people...

Pay attention to the tread width up front as going wider will affect steering feel. The differences are not huge, but noticeable. I used to run the OEM 16" rims on the street and OEM 17" on the...

I emailed them to get some clarification. I don't think they would mind me sharing their reply:
Each piston is 40mm in diameter. Rotor thickness is 25mm.

Replacement rotors are $300 a pair.

Brake upgrade effects on bias

I run the SBG FPSport with 11k/11k and stock bars so similar to yours and found the same thing on the track. I've gradually tightened them to -3/-3 and the car is quite neutral and predictable now -...

Cleaning brake dust

What are the better solutions for cleaning brake dust after a track day? I'm talking about dust deposits from track pads, not street pads. I had my first day with the new square setup using TSW...
