You can't go wrong with one of those, I had a 2006 S2000 for a few years that I regret not tracking at the time

They are fun to drive on the street too. With the top down, it would add more to the experience

One thing I thought it needed was a little more torque down low.

I already thought I needed more power!

Nicely done Quick and Doc, + rep to each of you for the great track vids.

I can only imagine the sport's car drivers reaction to seeing a couple of refrigerators drafting in the rear view.

Why new rotors? Just curious? Going Cross drilled??

I'll be sure to put something up if we get something together.

Thanks for the Rep Moose...
One of the BMW m3 (2009 I think) drivers came up to DMD to express his utter surprise and dissappointment in himself that this Giant SUV was about to push him off the track from behind. He blamed his tires! LOL!!! Yes, he had track tires on!

Re: Video: Road Course @ Lime Rock Park, WK and WK2 SRT8's stretching their legs!

Quickone,
My fear is significant break fading. And i was told crossing drilling current rotors is probably not a good idea. Therefore i am looking at a pair of brembo cross drilled rotors and new pads. I am just a safery nut like that.

Re: Video: Road Course @ Lime Rock Park, WK and WK2 SRT8's stretching their legs!

In my opinion the WK2 would only need race pads and race brake fluid, no need of different rotors....

The brake fade is not from the rotors.....

BTW, I ran Thunderbolt today for 1 session in the beast and it was awesome......
