Played with the anti-lag a bit. hahaha. Too bad after the edit only a few flames can be seen. Guess I didn't have the FPS high enough...

Default May 2011 Track Prep

Fast forward to Present Day 2011!

Weather has been crap March/April so I didn't do any track days.

Getting warmer so I decided to put on my new rotors Johann @ Girodisc in Bellingham hooked me up with. Way better than the DBA 5000 stuff everyone is running for this price range. 2 piece rotor so it weighs 16.5lb compared to the 20.5lb stock rotor. Curved directional vane design so it actually pumps air from the inside > outside of the rotor unlike the "kangaroo paw" DBA 5000's or pillar vane stockies.

28mm min thickness.




OEM (20.5lb) left. Girodisc (16.5lb) right. Reduction of 4lb unsprung weight each side. Total 8lb. Better acceleration!


Up-close laser etched.


Hardware up close. Spring to reduce noise and directional vanes


Final result.

Glad to see my dpt's get done in the color I wanted them to be! Nicely done. It was nice to meet you and if you ever want to sell the dpt's, I'd gladly buy them back anyday! Such a sick car man!

LoL! If you got time you could always re-ring the motor. Did you give it boost to break in? How many miles on it now?

Yeah, I'll see you on June 11th. Remember to leave time before drivers meeting to change your wheels AND mine! That was the deal!

Been following your build very closely and watching all your videos!
I have a very similar setup to you! I brought the same turbo from the guy that used your video to sell it on here. Lol
Congrats on a great car man, awesome job!
