Brakes have bedded in a lot better now and the brake pressure is becoming easier to modulate. Probably a combination of laying down a layer of friction material and improved muscle memory from me. Heel Toeing is starting to come back to me on the street as well.

Still waiting on the PF01 wheels to arrive. Once I have those it will be time to cut loose at the track.

New Wheels arrived. Fitment is closer than I thought it would be but that was one huge sigh of relief I just breathed.

Just wax them with some wheel wax now and then after every track day. They will be a lot easier to clean and they will age a lot better.

First track day with the new brakes today. I made the mistake of thinking a set of XP8 pads in the front would help compensate for the brake bias. Instead I just got a set of brake pads that just don't bite all that well and felt meek and shit.

Once fully bedded in they did fine but next time I will use the XP10 and slap myself in the balls for ever second guessing them.

All that said, I still set a PB by over a second so definitely doing something right. I am putting most of that down to a new tune tho. The data shows this tune just walking away from the old one on the straights while braking performance is more or less unchanged.

Nice driving, just release that death grip on the steering wheel.

I love coming up against other hot hatches at track days. Mostly because it feels nice to drive straight past them.

Another track day yesterday with the XP10 back in. I beat on these brakes like never before and they were amazing, 100% consistent every single lap.

The better heat management is noticeable too. They aren't absolutely roaring hot after a session like the oem ones were, they run so much cooler that the front tyre pressure rise is actually 1-2psi less as well.

Better pedal progression and release modulation makes trail braking and rotating the car on turn in even more controllable than before. This was my main concern as I was was worried any more forward bias might cause the car to push.
Stopping distances are maybe slightly better but it's mostly the extra consistency that breeds confidence that I am liking.

Ongoing diary with these brakes:

1. The brake pad thickness is a bit shit. The OEM pads had about 50% more material and lasted longer than these do. 3 Track days and these are completely gone. Expensive on consumables and the replacement rotors make your eyes water. Hopefully they last longer to compensate.

2. The inner pad wears noticeably faster than the outer pad. Swap inner/outer to prolong pad life.

3. Once fully bedded in brake modulation is better than OEM. The rotors have a lot of machining marks that made them extremely grabby at first. They get better.

4. Pad changes are super easy compared to OEM. Just undo 2 bolts and it all comes off. It's not quite as nice as a genuine racing setup because you do need to remove the caliper, but it's not far off.

Finally got the brake lines fully sorted today. New lines with a nice aluminium billet grommet. Much better than our hack job from the initial install

You use kw coils for tracking ? How do you like them ? I've heard poor things about them for track purposes, I've been told they're far too soft to cope properly in track conditions. I'm currently on stock suspension, and only have less than a handful of laps of track time behind me so I'm a complete noob. But would rather buy one set up and one set up only

I can't speak for the V1's or V2's but I have V3's and they have enough adjust-ability to tune for anything up to full race tyres. I set them to soft mode for the street and hard mode for the track, best of both worlds.

Don't quote me on this but I have a feeling the V1's are tuned to match the V3's factory recommended specs anyway, which is basically what I use on the track only I go 1 click firmer in the rear. KW really know what they're doing, even a minor deviation from their suggested settings really screws up the balance.

I see. The v1's are definitely more in my price range (still have a boat load of parts to buy) I'll look into them some more. Appreciate the reply !

I ordered some replacement discs for this kit recently.

The Alcon replacements are $1200AU JUST FOR THE RINGS.

But the good news is that Forza (Australian company) can fabricate a set of motorsport spec discs that will fit these hats for roughly half that price. It's still expensive but not all that different to the DBA5000 series Rotors that I was using before swapping for the Alcon Kit.

Will see how they go once they arrive. Should be a couple of weeks.
