Think I need a bigger toolbox, spending more time rearranging the tools than I do using them. Or I can just stop buying more stuff.....

Anyone got any bargain hookups?
I got 50% off Kincrome if you want.

I take it we're talking about OEM LED's now.
I got confused, thought JS330 was after aftermarket cos he was talking about aftermarket LED's for the harness etc.
My bad!
$400 is a decent price for OEM tails

Brakes were fine. I bled the brakes and put in RBF600 but didn't bleed 100%. I followed the instructions 100% but the pedal was a tiny bit squishy. Will need to get that fixed. I also lost a couple of chunks from my front right brake pad which was the one under the most stress. I suspect they are old pads so I've ordered stoptech street performance pads.

Also seem to have developed a humming noise under brakes which sounds like it could be due to the farked pad or there being pad deposits. Hoping the new pads and a bit of 600 grit sand paper can fix the issue.

When I do the front diff bush I'm also doing the rear cover, seals, oils and rear bolts. Is there anything else you recommend I do whilst the diff is out?
My discs hum and vibrate after the track days too, it stops by the time im home or after the next drive.

I would just poke your head under and make sure the subframe is ok and the fix looks good.

Sweet. I'm hoping the new pads rectify the issue. What pads do you run? Some of the guys said only track pads will get the deposits off.

Usually DS2500 or DS3000 on the front and stock pads on the rear.

Great. I've just ordered Stoptech Street Performance pads which are apparently on par with DS2500s

Hey Declan, where do you track your car? I'm looking to get into a bit more tracking. Been thinking of organising a half day meet with QR with about forty people. Either that or sprints, been on those? Any good?
