Having been to the track many times I'm thinking at least tires, then see what she does. :)

Hopefully they will equip the car with appropriate brakes, unlike the ST. [facepalm]
The front rotors are bigger than even the upgraded ST from 2014.5-present, and the front calipers look like 4 pot Brembos so hopefully it's sufficient to track the car.

opt for the pilot sport cups and you won't need a tire upgrade [grinking]

I plan to thoroughly test mine on track by attending the Optima Batteries Ultimate Street Car Association events.

Yup, makes sense. From what I read the wheels are 19" so I think that you're right and the rotors ought to be larger. I would still change the pads before tracking it though, seeing what happened to mine on the ST.

They are 350 mm rotors with Brembo 4 pot calipers up front at least with additional cold air ducting from the front fascia for improved track performance.

I would definitely use some track pads. My current track car goes through a set of pads in about a weekend and a half when conditions are dry, two full weekends if we have some rain.

Tracked my svtf and mazdaspeed, so yeah, if I can afford an RS I will be tracking it.
