Is vented really needed on the rear? I'm going for light as possible for TT classing.

I wanted to at least do TSE's upcoming 2 piece rear rotor, but it was supposed to be done a few months ago and he hasn't responded to my last few emails so I said to hell with it. I figure I can always change later if I want.

Also, FM does have an ebrake version.

Doesnt the 2 piece goodwin rear fit sport brakes? I'd rather have sport diameter rears with any size above stock 1.8 fronts anyways.

I'd like to cut 200*f off the rear caliper temps. Define "needed".

Aluminum calipers and aluminum hats would help that a bit.

I'm not sure.

I'd rather chew through rear pads more quickly and have the weight loss.

Good point, I guess I'll need to get some temp paint for when I get the car back on track to see where I'm at.

Yup, V4 Goodwin rears are interchangeable with Sport rotors. Not sure why Goodwin doesn't publish that.

We have found the the best balance with 11" Wilwood fronts comes with standard 1.8 rears and one pad compound stagger. In the case of Carbotech, that's XP10 front, XP8 rear. For Hawks it's probably DTC60 front, DTC30 rear. I don't use Hawks so maybe someone can correct me on that.

The 10.9" Sport / V4 rears only balance well with 11.75" fronts.

I use DTC-60 all the way around because 30s were overheating severely in the rear.

Your 11.75/Sport rear brakes were awesome when I drove it last year at Hallett.
I wonder if the DTC-60's also balance as well on an 11" front, NA8 rear set up. With Carbotech's on an 11"/NA8 set up, the same compound F/R has too much rear bias unless you're running 185 all seasons.

It's pretty easy to enter the big double-apex corners with extreme entry speeds and get the car from the entry paint to the exit paint on the "first" corner. There is so much time to make-up on brakes.

I already talked to Sav, but I hope that you're happy that I'm $1520 into brakes for this winter and I don't even have pads or anything else I was planning.

No videos, I need a camera...but I need a lot of things. See the bicycle thread.

Ohlins suspension, wheels, tires, pads. She has the 17x9s and didn't roll the fenders out far enough so we're still working on it. The car is boring a stupid, it makes no sense to buy one unless you like shitty brakes and are rich enough to pay for the car, tires, and pads for the shitty brakes.. NA/NB is better in every practical way.

NA/NB for life. I keep forgetting how classy that RB type II front end CAN look when not in the hands of clubricer kiddo's that ruin the rest of the car. If only it weren't fiberglass.

Does she regret moving from the MSM to the NC?

Yes, yes it is.

If she did, and I know she did that weekend, she'd never admit it. The MSM needed to go because they are too heavy and too "MSM-like" to have fun in. Her NC was basically grounded so I let her drive mine, and my car did 180 laps that weekend. I tried to motivate her to get a cheap NA and do the BGK and basically copy the 95R, which is pretty much what my car turned into. They have a chipped 135 and a Ridgeline, there is no need for an "old man daily driver NC" that they probably bought for $12k or more. Imagine if they had that $12k for an NA which they could still drive around with the top down a few days per week when the weather is nice?

I drive all kinds of different cars all the time now that I coach for three groups and an NC is a great car, I'd say one of the top three best under six figures. However, nothing comes close to driving these ~150whp NA/NB Miatas.
