Right, I get that. Which track are you planning on going to? When? Which group is organizing the event?

I am the lead classroom instructor for that group. Good people, very safe. 2014 dates should be up in less than a month.

It is great. It is a bit of a drive from WA, but worth it, IMO.

How do you know this since you have never been on track? The SVT brakes are fine for HPDE/Track days.

Brake PADS on the other hand, are where you need to spend the money.

Calipers are leaking so while I get them fix I want better gripping brakes. Cause mine kindly suck at braking
