I wouldn't advise installing these if it's your daily. For the most part they don't make any noise. It's when you start driving on rough roads that the NVH arises. Since the collars now limit left to right movement (canceling out Toyota's built in toe correction [your rear alignment should be spot on before installing these, or you'll be dog tracking]), you'll be hearing alot of popping/creaking from the torsion beam. It'll sound like your car is broken.

Track day prep.

Thank you OE front pads for your hard life of 15k miles and 5 track days. I ran them down to ~3mm.

I think the SE OE front pads did pretty well for track days. The only time I had any issue with brake fade was late braking the back straight at Streets of Willow.

I ordered Winmax W3 pads all around about 4 weeks ago, I was told that it would take 3 to 4 weeks as they are made to order, but I never received an update. I called the distributor, and the order either never made it to Winmax, or... it was never submitted. I have to wait another 3-4 weeks.

Back up plan, I ordered Akebono Proact Ceramic pads with Centric blank rotors. The Akebono's came with new hardware which was nice.

At the last track day, I'm guessing that I boiled the fluid because my pedal has felt mushy since. Flushing with fresh ATE stiffened up the pedal. I might have to go Motul if this happens again.

Big Willow is tomorrow and the forecast shows a cool 23C and sunny day!

Would you believe me if I said I'm still on my original pads and rotors?

Deng, those are the rotors in running with my hawk hps. They've held up great on 2 track days which was over 300km of lapping.

The hps pads are pretty good but they get pretty dusty after a hard track day and now even dd. It's a trade off for a better pad.

Yeah these rotors are great! I've been running them on my past track cars. When I first started doing track days way back when, I opted for slotted rotors, and those didn't last long. Ended up developing cracks. I stuck with blank rotors ever since.

Not many U.S. companies make performance pads for the SE which is a bummer.

I had a great time at Willow Spring's big track yesterday, even though it was only for 2 sessions lol.

The car felt great with the Cusco coilovers. With the engine/exhaust back to stock, the car was very quiet lol. I really need a 4.3 lsd soon. :)

Anywho here's me going off at ~98mph at T9.

https://youtu.be/QPAQvmTqxOY

I'm fine, and the car is fine. Thankfully, I only debeaded the front left tire. I'm surprised that there aren't any broken or bent parts on the Yaris, even the Kosei's were okay just scraped up. We inflated the tire, rotated it to the rear, and I called it a day. I survived T9, no need to keep pushing it. I got home safe and sound driving the speed limit.

ArmstrongRacing was out here with his co drivers too! It was good seeing him again. Last I talked to him he was putting down some fast times!

Even though I had only 2 sessions, I was able to beat my PB of 1:49.559. I ran a 1:45.531. I'm pretty happy with the time, especially with a stock engine and full interior car.

Sorry for the wind noise, this was recorded on a gopro hero2 lol.

https://youtu.be/ZuBPyFgJIm0

I figured I would have been in the 1:44s if I didn't lift on T9....but yeah, I should've lifted.

Sideways across the track, then into the dirt, you are lucky that did not roll. :(

Did you have data to pull your mph and lap times?

B Spec record is a 1:44.3, considering you are on street tires (I assume you still are) you were clicking off pretty good times.

That was the thought that kept running through my head, "don't roll, don't roll!" Looking back at the video, if only I managed to drive off straight it wouldn't have been so dramatic and I could've went straight into the pits. *facepalm*

I do have the data, and I'm trying figure out how to do the overlay. 9 min worth of data for a 30 sec clip, the software doesn't allow me to choose what part of the data to overlay. It needs all 9 minutes of video I'm guessing, then I trim from there.

Yeah, the safe way off is down pit road. You are one of the lucky ones that gets a second chance. ;)

Why is there like a 20mph difference between gps and obd speed in your data?

Haha pretty much why I packed up, cheered on my buddies, and left early for the day. It was such a nice day too.

I'm guessing it's because I instinctively went both feet in and ABS was activating during the slide, so the ECU sees a slower wheel speed than the velocity I was traveling. I think haha.

Geeze you are a lucky man. Gald you and the car are okay. Did you try throttling out of the over steer?

How do you decipher the lap data diagram on Harry's lap timer? That's the app I use but I haven't ever fully under stood the lap data image it gives you
