New Front Pads & Rotors

Recommended Posts

It’s good having separate track mags & tyres, as it saves my street MPSS tyres, & you can fit better track tyres.   at the track the ISF is hard on the front tyres.

I tried that with a square set of works in 18x9.5s and advans. Expensive exercise but in the end the range for decent semis in 18s is endless and cheaper compared to 19s.

Yes there are more options for 18inch mags, but they look to small in dia on the ISF.  with too much guard to tyre clearance, & the speedo would also be way out, but for the track they would be fine.   I like Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2’s on my 19 inch track rims, they grip well, fill the guards nicely & are very quiet.

P.S.  I have order from RR Racing, there 2 piece front rotors for the ISF to use at the track.  looking forward to testing them next year.

17x10s with R-comps on the rear

Obviously look different to the stock 19s on the front (17s arent doable on the front anyway) but they give far more and cheaper options for tyres for track days

Yesterday my RR Racing 2 piece front track rotors turned up.   looking forward to testing them on the ISF when the weather cools down a bit.

The finger prints on the rotor are from RR.

Depending on what the US dollar is doing, & including customs,  all up the rotors cost me $1898.81 AU dollars delivered to my door.

Once the weather cools down a bit, I'll test them out at the track, & will let you know.

I only like to do 2 track days a year in the ISF, & I already have my name down for a Lexus track day in June & October, at Eastern Creek with Lexus of Chatswood as my backup.
