Smile glamcem's Rotrex Supercharged (Krafwerks) _PART OUT

I am not really good for build threads but I figured it would be nice to have everything in chronological order to see the progress
Car has been purchased in March 2014 and I've started ordering some of the parts in the very same week to get ready for the track season..

Here's my 2014 DGM BRZ Limited when I first got it





and with the mods

Street


and Track











List of mods:

Engine/Exhaust/Drivetrain:

Suspension/Brakes:
Wheels and Tires:
  • Enkei RPF1 17x9 +35mm wheels with 235/40/17 Nitto NT-01 R comp tires / Muteki "SR35" Closed End Lugs w/ Locks (for track)
  • XXR 527 17x8.25 +35mm wheels with OEM tires (for street)
  • Muteki "SR35" Closed End Lugs in Red (w/out locks)
  • Hankook Ventus Z214 C51 (medium) 245/40/17 ordered with HC service (soon to be installed)

Cosmetic:
  • Nothing much redded out tail lights

Aero mods:
Functional aero mods for track
  • Ft86SpeedFactory Front Splitter with supporting rods
  • Driveway Labs Rear Diffuser V1
  • Longacre 8" splitter support rods
  • Quik Mini latches (for bumper support)

Interior/Electronics/Seats/Harnesses:
  • Schroth Rallye 3 ASM Harnesses
  • Go Pro Hero3+ Black edition
  • Bluetooth OBD2 device
  • Nexus 7 and GT86 mounts for track data
  • Akron Headrest extendable mount for tablets (GoPro)
  • Akron Cellphone suction mount
  • Qstarz BT-Q818XT 10Hz Bluetooth GPS receiver for accurate lapping data
  • Misc apps for track data, overlay and data logging (Racechrono, Torque App, RaceRender 3)
  • Beltronics RX-65 Radar Detector Hardwired



Track Videos and best lap times:

The Ridge Motorsports Park (RMP)

Best lap time 2:02.76


Stock powered, R Compounds ambient temps were about 60 degrees
Notice the GT3RS massive hp advantage, my car begs for more power and better brakes since I experienced some fade issue..it was a nice baseline IMO


Oregon Raceway Park (ORP)

Best lap time 2:04.81



Stock powered, R Compounds ambient temps were about 55 degrees


-------
now with Kraftwerks and FA coilovers ambient temps were about 75 degrees
Best Lap time 1:58

---
Oregon Raceway Park 2014-6-15
Best Lap Time 2:02 with some serious rubbing issues ..

------
The Ridge Motorsports Park (RMP) Ambient temps were 92+ F degrees!!

-----
Pacific Raceways (PR) 2014-7-19 Ambient temps were about 83+F

----
The Ridge Motorsports Park (RMP) 2014-8-19 Ambient temps were 80F
----
Oregon Raceway Park (ORP) 2014-8-30 Ambient temps were about 73F


-------------------------------------
The Ridge Motorsports Park (RMP) 2014-7-4 Ambient temps were 95F
(the day I destroyed my 2nd OEM manifold)

I will do my best to post everything about the progression . In the meantime, I've added couple videos of the track events I attended this past weekend and updated my first post and will continue adding new videos. I think I am the fastest stock powered BRZ at both tracks unless otherwise posted

Nexus 7 and Torque app seems to be working fine to take logs for the most part (in both events) my coolant temps were at around ~95 degrees (F) which is good but I saw oil temps rose up to ~265-270 (F) hopefully OEM oil cooler will help reduce those oil temps. I am glad I was running Mobil 1 0W-40 since it looked good between sessions.



Stoptech brakes on the other hand could've been better since I noticed slight fade, I will soon get some Carbotech or Raybestos St43 or equivalent pads and separate rotors so that they can bind well together..


Tires also seems to be holding fine and pressures were stable at around 35 psi between sessions..



Here are some pictures of my car and friends' Mx-5 Miata and Lotus:

getting ready for the trip





I can fit 4 wheels and tires, track stuff (jacks, helmets, tq wrench, ..etc) with no problem


The Ridge Motorsports Park




On the road to ORP (Oregon Raceway Park)

Not a lot of white evo's running around The Ridge. If you had it at The Ridge in 2012 with Ridge Racing School, there's a really good chance that I was your instructor that day.

I haven't attended any racing school with Ridge and I am fairly new to the Seattle area (moved here in October 2012 from Florida) I will look forward to meeting you one of those events though

A Little update: I've installed Perrin OP, Invidia Catless FP and Tsudo Catback.. It was an easy install but time consuming maybe it's because I am not that to install parts in general It took me about 4 hours (could've been faster but I took my time).

I will soon post pictures and video, sound is not annoying on the highway and catback is pretty quite but with nice tone ..
