This was my 1st track day since the last vid I posted up.. This is the last session of the day.. session 3. In the first few laps, I'm holding in the clutch while downshifting, (which was new to me, suggested by a friend), but that was distracting from hitting the correct entry speed.. too slow. So I went back to clutch, downshift, rev match. And was hitting majority of lines, apexes, etc.. I also broke my habit of setting corner-entry speed by glancing at the speedometer. All visual cues! I was stoked by my performance at this track day.
I did have a problem in Sessions 1 and 2 with massive brake fade towards the end, which caused me to run off track in a few corners. Sessions were 30 minutes long. I'm running Steel-braided lines, stoptech front rotors, stock MC and calipers, and EBC Brake pads. Was the brake fade due to the extremely long session, or should I change something up? My friend following me told me that I'm braking extremely well... rear is skimming, all the way to turn-in.
I was thinking of going with Galfer wave rotors, but I've heard mixed reviews about them. Heard nothing but good things with Brembo rotors. Also thought about getting Brembos RC19 MC.
MOTO JOE: I am now running Bridgestone's BT003RS's.. 180/55 These tires are by far, my favorite.
