Have these similar parts:
(and more already)
4 adj. pan hard bar
16 Shaftmasters alum. one-piece DS
31 oil separator
About to install:
12 Brembo 4 piston 14 inch brakes
36 motul 600 brake fluid
Need input on this:
35 Ford racing brake cooling ducts - do you need these? I'm considering these now vs. just the $50 GT500 cooling shields.
34 Carbotech XP 10/8 brake pads - tell me what you think of these compared to OEM Brembo pads
I may get these later:
27 H&R 26mm rear sway bar - do you really need this? I thought the car was "stiff enough in the rear" already.
29 Ground Control CC plates - I'd like to get these to get some camber.
28 Koni yellow struts/shocks - I'll do these when/if I get CC plates.
Looks like the groups are much different at that track.
I used to run near the top of the pack in Intermediate group, with my Cayman S (+ turbo kit). 420hp / 3,000 lbs, mid-engine car. I was fast. Generally, the only cars faster than me were cars that with slicks/R-compounds (converted street cars mostly trailered). I wasn't even in the advanced group, which has some 911 GT3 RS's and was almost all instructors for the events. Not knocking you, but that group looks more like about the speeds of the novice group at the events I have participated in.
I still haven't taken my Mustang to the track as I know it needs so much to really get it ready for my hard 20-30 minute driving sessions. Plus I'm actually a little afraid of spinning out like you did. Ford's Traction Control really doesn't do much to keep you out of trouble vs. Porsche's PSM basically can practically make a fool look like a track pro!!
Speaking of spinning out on the track....
Here is a video from a Porsche Club track event: (someone else driving's helmet cam, but I am on the track in my Cayman)
(red group = advanced, yellow & blue solo = intermediate, blue & green = novice)
You can see me around the 4min to 4:45 minute mark in the blue porsche. I gave him the point to pass me on the straight at 4:40, but then I gunned it and he didn't have enough power to pass me. I let off & let him pass though, b/c he was faster than me in the turns. Watch at the around the 10:00 minute mark a Lotus spins out across the track
, I was right behind the guy with the camera at this point. I had to drive through the dust cloud too!
