Time for some high temp paint? lol.
It was. Engine enamel primer, caliper paint and engine enamel clear. This is the first track that I have had this issue. I think outside temps played a role too. It was really hot on a new track.

Wow!
Well good luck finding a solution then. Maybe some brake ducts of some sort will do the trick? http://racecompengineering.com/osc/p...roducts_id=159
Forgot about your front mount setup

Nice work man! 2 questions:

-18x9.5, did it require any fender mods? I'm looking for some larger wheels but wasn't sure on if I'd need any fender mods for a 9.5 wheel!
-The Greddy exhaust is quieter than the SPT? That sounds like it would be one of the quieter catbacks out there, which is what I'm looking for...

Rolled rears was all that was done. No rubbing after that.
The SPT was actually pretty loud even in comparison with some aftermarket ones. The GReddy is incredible. I get comments on how it sounds and looks everywhere I go.

I had a little bit of time today so I cut together some video content I have had lying around. Dyno video/track/exhaust clips.

The tune is really the showcase of the entire car. It makes great power but drive-ability is insanely good for DD use as well. I am really happy with the end result...it is sooo smooth.

That's a sweet video!! You should do more of these! It would be nice to see some video of you on the track from the outside not just pov. I know that's hard to do, but it would complete your video!

It's especially hard as I am the guy that usually takes pictures and video. That makes it so there are a ton of pictures and video of everyone but me!

The tow-hook camera mount is another cool spot to view the track!
Has the plasti-dip grown on you? Or has it been 86'd?

It worked for protecting the front on the track and the look has grown on me. We'll see if I keep it or not...

I love the suspension setup for my uses. Mainly DD with a couple of track days a year and a lot of spirited mountain runs. The sways made a huge difference...that was the first mod on the car actually.

Rolling the rears is required. The fronts have no clearance issues at all.

This is why I don't make build threads. Everyone just looks at the pictures, then asks questions that have been answered numerous times.

It's all good. Just had to give you a hard time because it was on the same page. I don't mind answering questions about the car. That is what the forums are for!

Did you have to roll the fenders because it's been lowered a tad? I'm still on stock height (no plan on changing) on my 2011, would love to go 9.5 wheels if I don't need any mods...

So I went for a spirited drive around North Georgia today basically deleting 129. I wasn't pushing hard...just having some fun. It is amazing how boring in car footage is. I had planned on doing something more creative with this...but the footage is just too BORING. That really makes you want to watch it doesn't it?!

As stated. I have to agree that this hatch is the cleanest on the site. Your style of cleanliness is perfection. Kudos on the amazing job.
