    JK a well written article. Can't wait to see what boosting this car will do for the driving experience--I bet you have a ball

    2° of negative camber is a lot on a road car and will eventually trash the tyres. The price that must be paid, I guess. As for the 911 driver getting confused by your braking, he/she needs to STFU and get on with driving their car.

    Nice post - much appreciated. BTW, why can't the 911 just pass the BRZ already?!

    Heh, 911 passing at turn 11 makes me think of that silly go-pro commercial where supposedly the CEO of Go-Pro makes a dive-bomb late braking move into turn 11 on two cars that were a mile ahead of him at yet mysteriously started braking somewhere oh around the access road just at turn 10 exit. How heroic.

    Why did you choose CT brakes over something less ceramic? In my experience, once they're overheated, they take a while to come back. PFC01s or Hawk DTCs might deal with the heat better, though brake ducts would be a better solution overall.

    Good stuff, Jay! Have you ever tried Ferodo DS2500 pads for combined street/track use? They're pricey, but I've liked every set I've used.

    Love the top photo! Is that hitting the apex in turn 5 or 2 (I ruled out 6 and 9 because of the curbing on the other side of the track seems to close to be those turns)?

    too close*

    Editing functionality please come back. K thx bye.

    Based on the camber I'm thinking turn 5.
