Just ran my first day on a new set of Nankang AR-1s. It was interesting. Definitely more longitudinal grip than the RE-71Rs. Both from data-logging and feel, I could brake significantly harder. ...

The time it takes me to change my oil (including cleaning up the drain pan and such) is worth more than $20. Even if oil were free I wouldn't do it every track day.

In case anyone's interested, I had a brand new set of RE71Rs and Nankang AR-1s in my garage, so I weighed a couple of each.

Both in 255/40/17.

RE-71R: 24.5lb
AR-1: 26.7lb

Just got my first Blackstone report back—about six track days, 10 autocrosses, and a total of about 2000km on the oil since the last change around 10 months ago. Metals were all elevated for the...

Still G-Loc R10s. Couple more track days on them and they're at around 7.5mm now. (Started at around 13.) And I drive hard, so these are probably worst-case numbers.

In the S2000 it can certainly feel like it. Takes some serious socket extensions and such at least. Plus I wouldn't think you'd want to be repeatedly threading into the stock mounting holes on a...

While we're on the topic of safety, another thing most people should probably have, especially if you're not running a hardtop or are running with the window down (but likely even otherwise) are arm...

I don't understand the "BMW engine" hate. (Especially from the uninformed who think the whole car is just a rebadged Z4.) I do kind of understand the styling hate—the concept looked great, and the...

Looks like it could be a pretty fun track car. I might consider one for track and autocross (if it's classed well) in the future at some point, if I ever get bored of the S2K.

Certainly a risk, especially for you taller guys (which also means seat further back). Is the risk of hitting a (hopefully padded) bar with your head greater or less than the risk of breaking your...

That's true. (Although obviously wouldn't be exactly _fun_.) Also not good to have your body held motionless with no hans to stop head snapping forward. Of course roll bar, helmet, 6/7 point harness...

Yeah, I'm fairly certain the "high" harness bar (the one that preserves interior) will be too high regardless. However, if you call Bethania Garage (the Hard Dog people) they can locate the regular...

I disagree. I would say you're much more likely to get into a serious accident on the track than on the street, at 4 HPDEs per summer and a bunch of street driving. Serious meaning an accident where...

Do you know how tight you're going? I torqued them as tight as I was comfortable with and it didn't seem to help. This just supports the conclusion that it's a manufacturing issue at Stoptech...

I mean, it's possible really reefing on the thing would do it, but then you risk messing up the seat worse, or wrecking the threads. I did try going a bit tighter than spec, but wouldn't want to risk...

I'm sure this doesn't happen on every set, or even most, or they'd probably do something about it.

Do you know the torque spec? Otherwise I'll just snug it down, not tighten (as usual with bleeders, but slightly more careful..)

Yep, saw that and ordered a set! So, updated PSA:

If you're going to buy a Stoptech kit, pick yourself up a set of these: https://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/wil-220-6069/overview/

Leaking through the bleeder, not past the threads.


That's a good idea. Thanks! Do you know if they make them without check valves? The only two piece ones I've seen have them (which I don't...

Yeah, I did convince stoptech to at least send a new set of screws, so I'm planning to try that once they arrive. Not super hopeful from what I've read (the issue is usually with the seat, not the...

PSA about Stoptech brakes on track

Got an ST-40 kit from Stoptech mid last season. For the most part it's been a huge upgrade, but I've been having one issue with it, which I've discovered is pretty common. Two of the bleeder screws...

For what it's worth, the buckle in a 2006+ is definitely a "type A". I relocated my stock receptacle to a hard mount down at the base of the transmission tunnel (where my harness belt is also...
