    yeah i figure the engine is producing about 3 times what it originally did, the radiator is a double-thickness one but it must be just dumping to much heat into the system at full noise :-) It cornered OK, a bit vague in the front end according to the instructor (pretty sure it's just body flex) but overall not too bad. had a few moments where i got into a 4-wheel slip situation and drifted it through the corner - the bloke in the carrera following me thought it was hilarious. He never caught me though!

    Just pulled the wheels off and had a look at the brakes. The pads are absolutely farked. I've taken some photos which i'll upload later, they are trashed. I think they simply cooked. Not what I was expecting from the A1RM's, most people rate them very highly as a track/street pad? I put in some bendix jobs I had lying around and the pedal feel is much better. Next time round I'll try another pad I think!

    in the end there is only so much you can do with a 257mm rotor, i found them useless on the track after a few laps and I was only pushing about 200whp, and put it high on the list of things to upgrade

    Did you replace the rotors when you did the pad change? From memory these are a transferrence pad.

    nah I asked about replacing the rotor, but the brake specialist (pretty damn cluey bloke who actually helped design the original A1RM pad!) said don't worry, just bung it in. The pads are totally fucked, there's chunks out of the edges, each of the slots on teh rotor were packed with pad material that had melted in there, they have discoloured and gone all crumbly. Strange, I thought they would have lasted better than that.

    Lonewolf : any decent options for upgrade that will fit behind an N15 SSS wheel?

    not a lot to be honest
    you can upgrade to N16 hubs, then put on an A32 maxima twin piston caliper and 280mm rotor (wheels need to be machined out too)

    not worth the effort IMHO, but going bigger rims obviously loses out on the sleeper appeal

    crap. that sucks. I'll try some different pads next time with a higher temp rating and see if there's any joy. might be worth trying some brake ducting to cool the rotor too. not too keep on changing rims, new tyres, new rotors, new hubs etc - too spendy for an occasional track day car

    Have a look at these suckers - around the edges the actual pad material has delaminated from the back plate in sections as well:

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say the restriction is elsewhere than the cooler... Manifold?

    nah plenty of people have gone 200, 220kw even on the standard manifold/inlet setup. However most people use a 600x300 cooler in the front of their silvias etc which has twice as much volume as my little 230x400 one.

    Those pads look like they have been overheated. I had a set of PBR Ceramics and they were great until one track day at Wakefield on a very hot day and the car was double entered. Absolutely roasted the pads and they were gone!

    Yeah some of the material along the edges has melted - heat has been the issue here. i think for next track day I'll try and jimmy up some ducting pointing towards the disc as well as getting higher-temp pads. Any recommendations?

    I won't be doing track days in summer I don't think - the cooling system didn't handle it well enough.

    Well I've got the Project Mu Club Racer things that GSL have. Throughly impressed with the pad, not so much the way they boiled my shitty brake fluid

    I'll be on track next weekend with brake ducts and better fluid, will report back on the pads

    So this thing chewed out its first CV joint this morning. I was so proud! Like a benevolent father. Got another one to pick up tomorrow, will throw it in on the weekend. Gunna have to get the front end re-aligned again

    see this is the weird bit, I remember doing them up as tight as possible, but i only did it with one of those 4-point wheel braces which don't provide a lot of leverage. also i have tiny stick arms which probably doesn't help. i banged them back with the long 1/2 inch driver this time.

    Had a chat with sam and busted out the measuring tape, figured we can probably sneak in a 450x300 intercooler core. So I bought one - 450x300x100, bloody massive thing compared to the little one on there now. Will require slight massaging of the reo bar and bending of a few A/C pipes, nothing major. Hopefully get it fitted up in the next few weeks and get the tune re-tweaked to see if we can get up near 200fwkw.

    Farkin starter motor has shat itself today too - cranking super slowly or not at all sometimes. 12.4V at the battery, 14.1V with motor running - must be the starter. Sigh.

    i was freeballin' that day

    got some new QFM pads too - spoke to ?greg? at gslrallysport who provided some interesting info - apparently the QFM pads are particularly sensitive to overheating if you don't machine the discs before fitment. The pad itself interacts with the very thin melted layer of disc material on the disc, not the disc itself, and the QFM pads don't like having other material between themselves and the disc's metal. It is a common issue with them, particularly if the previous pad was a cheapy bendix or Lucas pad apparently. So i've got a new set of A1RM's all round (rear as well) and I'll get howard at Racebrakes to machine the discs for me when the new pads go on. Just need more time and less work at the moment!

    Been too busy working on the mafia car to get much done here. I have a water injection system I want to install along with the bigger intercooler. Probably a day's work but the 260 is holding me up! Once that's on the road and i've got two modes of transport, I'll get more done on this.

    Took it for a blat in a chilly evening a few nights ago, started wondering if it really needs more power. Sketchy in third gear LOL

    So I ran out of jobs to do on my other nugget so finally pulled my finger out and installed the larger intercooler today. Massive job - took me 7 hours all up - real estate in the front of this car is extremely cramped, I ended up having to remove lots of things and re-make all the brackets and piping on both sides. Also stripped the 8mm allen key drive bung that fills the gearbox (I changed the oil while I was under the car) and had to weld on a piece of allen key to crank it out. Nice way to waste an hour of your afternoon.

    Old core vs new core - went from 400x230x76 with 2.5 inch in/out to 450x300x100 with 3 inch in/out. Fark.

    Took the car for a blat and it felt good - dropped the boost back down to 11psi. Felt solid - tomorrow i'll give sam a call and get the car back on the rollers for a re-tune.

    Fingers crossed we can hit 200fwkw!
