Nice, trm is good.

sunbelts definitely cost a lot. Was just curious if there was some other reasoning behind it.

Haven't gotten any yet, but will most likely go with PBR Ultimates.

Yeah but they're really good and I'm used to them.

With a light car, they'll be great.

I don't need any crazy track pads that'll eat my rotors every session

Not until I feel the need at least.

I'm running the HP+ with ATE Superblue fluid and have no complaints. They're super noisy at low speed, but awesome on the track/autox The fronts lasted me 1.5 seasons, and the rears are still ok after 2

Looks good man, keep it up!

Ordered seat mounts for today. Since the cage needs to be done soon, I had to order something fast. So I went with VAC. Unfortunately these things are ridiculously expensive so I only got the drivers side for now

I'll also get a slider for the drivers seat when my funds are stronger.

Ordered mine in black.

Cool, I was happy with my ceramics too, although they didn't last very long lol

Trust me, they will last longer with the more seat time you get

On our E36, they lasted an entire track season on one set of pads. 5 track days, 4 race weekends, including one 3 hour race. That's pretty awesome... and there's still some left! looooll

^^hehe, you're not braking hard enough!

There's a couple mm left on the rears, the fronts actually faired a little better with about 3mm, and that was from only 2 trilium events, 1 lapping day and autox

The e36 has bigger pads than my e30 so I geuss it really isn't a fair comparison though

^^LOL^^ Yeah, just don't slow down! Words to live by!

My ceramics lasted 15 lapping days, 8 autocrosses, and 45,000km street mileage, for me that was one year almost to the day, 2009, my second set did the same but lasted 50,000km for 2010 and now I'm on my third set. I'm pretty happy with them. The rears I'm only on my second set, they lasted about 1/3 longer.....And ask Rudy, I AM HARD on brakes. Last of the late brakers!
