    damm that core looks pretty rotten for its age! I would speak to some re-coreing specialist and see if they can repair it for you.

    Front bumper 'sagging' / gap

    so have you fitted them? If so how?

    Fitting Question

    No your wheels at Et35 will sit 5mm further in than ET30 wheels. The wheels would be ET25 to stick out further.
  6. I am on coilovers, not sure how low I am running but not that low. No drop links or LCA required. I have seen some talks of people going up to a 255/35/18 on a 9.5 et35, but I think you'll need to be running over 2 degrees of negative camber, that will require top mounts on the front and LCA's on the rear.
  7. 9J et38 will be about right running a 245/35/18 tyre. This is my XXR 18x8.75j et35, running a 245/35/18 MP4 tyre. I run a fair bit of camber so its not as flush a look as it could be, but it gives you an idea to go from. DSC_0057 by Richard Beale, on Flickr

    Engine CLICK...CLICK...HISS ?!

    Electronic sound is definitely the throttle body. This hiss, I think mine does this, not sure what it is, whether its the AC, or the vacuum system draining.
  9. I think this is exacerbated by the charger bypass valve on a charged setup but I do notice the same!

    Brake callipers upgrade

    @Jay Bamrah In response to your other post I have the reyland 330mm kit on the front, OEM on the back except for Carbotec XP10 pads. Regarding the difference between AP and Reyland, as mentioned above it was curved vanes, but now Reyland have curved vanes. After a bit of discussion with @will300 we have come to the conclusion that the AP's last a little longer, but on the flip side I do use a very aggressive pad, so its hard to quantify.

    Post your GT86 / BRZ pic of day!

    Tested the fitment of the new wheels, and they clear the brakes! 😍 20211224_120209 by Richard Beale, on Flickr 20211224_110755 by Richard Beale, on Flickr 20211224_121415 by Richard Beale, on Flickr

    Front Roll Centre/ Bump Steer Correction Kit

    Can you get a diff riser kit in the UK? Dont think I have seen one!
  13. Can abbey not send you the drawing files for it? I think the manifold has to be machined for it too.

    Causes of brake fade on a track day

    Pedal straight to the floor I would say means boiled fluid. I always use RBF600 on anything I track its just not worth the risk in my opinion. Its probably one of the bigger stops in the UK so fluid and better pads will tided you over. With the charger my experience was DS2500 didn't cut it and they faded after a lap or two. I then when to a carbotec XP10 and they didn't fade except on the ring GP, but that used to have the biggest brake in F1. I also added brake cooling ducts off a GT3. I think they are about £30. 2020-10-12_09-21-03 by Richard Beale, on Flickr
