Default Took my STI to AutoClub Speedway

Went to Autoclub Speedway with the BMW Car Club of America for a High Performance Driving Education class. Everything went pretty well, car ran a tad hot after being pushed hard for several laps and the tires eventually gave out. Next up is a new rear sway bar and R-compound tires.

Let me know what upgrades you have found best for intro track use. I have a Perrin front strut brace (just to ya know, look cool) and SPT exhaust to ya know, sound cool.

ur next purchase needs to be good brake fluid and track or track/street pads, if not you'll find urself in some interesting situations. you should come out and drive at some ExtremeSpeed events, there's an AWD comp and they also run redline time attack. There's a bunch of great Subie guys there that you can learn a lot from.

Cool video. Thanks for sharing. All the camera angles were awesome but turn down the music a bit so we can hear the rumble! How fast on that long sweeping turn? I'm hoping to sign up for an HPDE here soon. Looks like you probably had a blast.

I am bleeding the brakes with motul 600 before the next event. I was thinking about pads but this is still my daily driver... I don't want the semi-metallic squeal and poor cold bite for street driving. I'll see how it goes at my next event or two. I may just have to switch the pads out for track days - any experience with that? bedding issues? I have 2 events on this car and haven't had a brake issue yet.
I'll look into extremespeed!

and Reese, I got up to about 125-130 on the straighter section and stayed at about 105-110 on the tighter part.

consider stop tech street performance pads. no squeal at all, better bite than oem and their heat resistance is amazing, u almost can't make them fade. annnnnd they're super cheap compared to other pads. a fellow sti owner said the same thing about his brakes, and then we were racing at Chuckwalla for Redline Time Attack and his brake pads faded and then his fluid boiled so bad that his pedal went to the floor at the end of the back straight, he bought pads and fluid the next day lol. good job with the rbf 600!
