A great racing adage is "Brakes slow you down". Its very true. In most cases amature advanced drivers use brakes far too hard and far to often and thus slow themselves down. My suggestion is to have a good instructor be with you to see how your momentum be curtailed as little as possible. The ST is a momentum car and can be made to rotate as opposed to slowed down with brakes. Just my thoughts.

p.s. I do about 12 to 15 track days a year
