    Yes for real. I didn't think to take a pic with them on the car, but I snapped a "before and after" comparison of the discs as I was changing them. The larger cross-drilled disks are the ones I got from Arek. Yes, they have a wee bit of surface rust, but I'll "machine" them by bedding in the HT-10 pads. (That said, I'm thinking of switching to DTC70 or 60; I find the HT-10 a little too grabby).

    The only other part I needed from the stuff Arek sold me was the larger caliper brackets. Really simple upgrade job!

    I found the stock brakes were fine for stopping power, but I really wanted better cooling. This should help.

    Hmmm you mean Z06 brakes? ZR1 brakes are those enormous carbon brakes. Like around 10k for the kit.

    Beats me. Z51? I can't keep all these designations straight lol.

    Anyway, just one step up from base. Z06 would be bigger.

    Bigger than base, smaller than Z06. Not going apeshit on the mods. My goals are to eliminate the various overheating problems, and to fix the horrible understeer.

    UPS is supposed to deliver diff and tranny coolers today.

    I ordered a suspension kit from Pfadt Engineering three months ago but they seem to be screwing up big-time on delivery. Getting close to asking for a refund. Any suggested alternatives?

    They're totally pfucking pfup. They had this black friday sale, 20% off. I jumped on it, lots of others did, now they don't answer their phone and only occasionally answer emails (unfulfilled promises only).

    True, but I'd like to get everything installed before the season. I have a limited number of hours a week I can put into it.

    Was just talking to MANL about brake pads, and he noted that these days they can take a month to get.

    Was just checking the calendar... GT series Test & Tune day is April 25! That's not much more than a month out (assuming the track isn't still covered in snow)... might want to get your orders in.
