Yeah I'm just glad nothing got messed up, I guess if you're gonna slide uncontrollably into something, it may as well be a field of mud and water lol

Its not too bad really, its been raining for the past 7 hours. My brother and I pulled most of the grass off the car, it was clumped into the wheels so badly that you couldn't reach a finger through any of the spokes on the right side (the side that slid in first.

I wish I could've gotten a pic of the field, cause we were about 10ft off the road, leaving a sideways skid for about 15ft until we can to a halt. Then, a lil rockin n rollin, and the lil subie pulled itself out like a fully fledged mud truck





Oh yeah, I also lost the splash shield underneath, and the mud is caked onto my headers; it smells great when its burning :/

It won't make a difference. It's just another version of corrosion protection, like the zinc that comes on some of the nicer brands of rotors. Your braking surface will be bare due to contact with the pads. It's just the rest of the rotor that does not contact the pad that will have the coating on it. So pretty much, it's just for vanity, and won't affect braking power at all.

I have not heard good things about Axxis pads. Additionally, I've heard from more than one trusted source that running "hybrid" pads is not worth it. They are neither up to the task of taking abuse at the track, nor do they offer good stopping power at lower street driving temps. So, the best route to go is to buy OEM pads for the street, and then swap them out at the track for a set of dedicated track pads.

It's basically a case of "jack of all trades, master of none".

Probably. Autocross runs are so short that I think OEM pads shouldn't have any trouble coping. I don't know what pads I have in my car, but I'm fairly certain they're just cheapo "low dust" pads, and they had no problems with overheating when I autocrossed a while back. OEM pads are supposed to be great for street driving.

I remember reading good things about Hawk pads back when I was shopping for new pads/rotors in the M5. I used Hawks in the M5 and 540i, never did an autoX with them but they seemed to bite really nicely and were surprisingly good in the brake dust department.



Two questions guys;

1) would you trade your gold RPF1s for a set of BBS RG-Rs if the guy was gonna add money on his end? Keep in mind I would repair the rash + powdercoat them gloss black http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2155904

2) Assuming whatever set of wheels I get are black, my car stays silver, and I have dark tinted windows, what color should I powder coat my new babies?
