Yas Marina Circuit Track Day - Video & Photos

Hello

I bought my 2013 Focus ST a couple of months ago, and had my first track day last week at Yas Marina Circuit.

It was my first drive there and first time to drive FWD car on track.

Thought to share with you some videos, photos, and mods plan.

During the track day the car had SCT custom tune for 98 Octane fuel, other than this, everything is factory stock, and the car had 3,000 miles.

The only issue I had was brake fading. They go off after three hot laps only.

Another issue I faced was almost running out of fuel after 100 mile on track. I had to pit after a hot lap without cooling down. After I noticed the glowing brakes, I went to drive around the parking lot to cool them down.

Here is what I plan to install in the car, hopefully this month:

Mods on the way: (nothing installed yet)

Parts:
Steeda Cold Air Intake
Steeda Racing Down-Pipe
Steeda Engine Mounts
EBC Brake Pads (Red front, Yellow back)
HEL Brake lines
Schroth Harness Belt

Fluids:
Red Line Engine Oil
EBC Racing Brake Oil
Red Line Water Wetter (Mixed With Distilled Water Only)

Data:
Race Technology DL1 Datalogger
Race Technology Dash4

Here is the video and some pics, will appreciate any tips and advice on video, car, and driving.

Thank you
Fahad

to FF, Fahad, thanks for sharing. I wasn't able to view the video. The car looks very nice in the photos, I would love to see more when you start modding. How about some ceramic brake rotors?

can you view by clicking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5nYB1DXf3c

Regarding the brakes, thought to start with lines and pads, then look into complete brake upgrade.

Thank you
