It really sucks that the brakes took away a lot of confidence I had because it's easily capable of 2:20ish or even faster out of the box with a better driver. My goal is sub 2:20 at Eagles Canyon sometime later this year.
Why didn't you just get track pads?

fire bottle

Installed a fire bottle in the boot. Wasn't happy with the under front passenger seat option, took up too much leg room, so this is where it ended up.

I really thought the stock pads + the Castrol SRF fluid that's in there now might be ok for the first time out. I only intended for this weekend to be a learning experience since this was my first time out on track in something that isn't FWD. I expected to have to replace the pads after the weekend anyway. Just kind of surprised at how quick they wore down.

I'll be ordering track pads very soon, I've just gotta find which set is best for me.

IMO: OEM pads are good for at most a couple of first track days per driver, not per car.

If you've done 10+ track days and picked up some pace, it's not a surprise you can cook the OEM pads on a brand new car in one track day.

Is the Castrol SRF in there stock or did you put it in there?

I'm looking to do pads + fluid but if the fluid in there is already high temp then no need to waste money. I won't be hot lapping this thing anyways just a few push laps at most.

I absolutely agree with that.

I had to put it in there, that would be pretty sweet if it came like that stock but would be a bit overkill for most! The stock pads were really good initially, it's just under the sustained heavy braking for 20+ minutes that really tested them.

Found out today that the STI accessories aren't expected to be in before March, the dealer gave me the option of cancelling that part of the order...

Time to email my dealer, they originally gave me a December estimate for the STI parts.

Asked the local dealership (Irvine) for eta's.

STI front lip + rear quarters = middle -> end of Jan

sides = march.

If you have the option to cancel, I would just order it separately as the dealership I called is offering 15% off MSRP (lots of parts dept offer some sort of discount if you order online and pick up from the dealership)

I'm based in Irvine at the moment but I am leaning towards no accessories at all. To be honest I prefer a more understated look and this whole ordeal is delaying PPF/ceramic coating.

If you can, get the PPF on your bumper ASAP. I remember my black 86 had some real noticeable rock chips when I waited 4 months after purchasing to get it.

As for the rest of the aero, I'm thinking that it should still attach fine after coating the car (screws in from the bottom of the car from what I saw, might need to check the install guides). Coating the STI aero yourself should be pretty easy too!
