    We've already confirmed numbers with the venue.... However I'm sure one more person won't matter.

    @Tubbytommy James at Amber Performance got them for me - As I wanted the plain version (DBA42656-10) not the slotted. If you want the slotted version (DBA42656S-10) both DBA UK & Partbox sell them: DBA: https://dbabrakes.eu/discbrakes/22837/DBA42656S-10 Partbox: https://www.part-box.com/dba-4000-series-t3-slotted-brake-disc-rear-subaru-impreza-wrx-sti-5x114-3-grb-dba42656s-10

    Update 02/06/19 - Schroth Harness Installation As I'm starting to do more track days, I decided I needed to do something to stop me moving about in the seat so much. My initial plan was to purchase a bucket seat, however after looking at the various options and the cost, I decided against this idea. Mainly because I was eyeing up an Edirb 023 seat, which meant lots of ££££'s. I therefore decide to get a harness setup first, as this is a much cheaper option. I'd seen that quite a few people are using the Schroth Racing Rallye 3 ASM harness, so after speaking with @VAD17 (and a couple of passenger laps) & @Mike I decided to go ahead and order one in Red. It's a straight forward install once you know what your doing, although removing and refitting the seat belt buckle nut is a royal pain in the backside. Here are couple of photo from the installation:

    Update 01/06/19 - Detailing Job Over the last couple of weeks I noticed my windscreen wasn't clearing when using the windscreen wipers, it was just smearing the water over the screen. Not cool when your trying to drive down a dual carriageway and you can't see straight in front of you. So yesterday I decide to clean the car and then re-sealed the glass. My go to product is G-Techniq G1 Clearvision Smart Glass, I've used this for a couple of years and it never fails to impress with how well it repels water. It takes about 40minutes to apply, you apply 3 layers to each window (you only really need 3 on the front, but it's easier to do all the windows), 5 minutes apart. Then you leave the coating to cure for 15minutes, before removing any left of residue with the G2 remover. I also bought a set of replacement windscreen wipers, I was previously using Michelin Stealth blades, however it appears these are no longer produced, so I opted for some Denso DUR-055R & DUR-050R blades. p.s. For a single car the G-Techniq G1 coating comes in a 15ml bottle, this is more than enough to do all the windows on an 86/BRZ, with 3 coats on each window. I purchased the larger 100ml option as I'm going to do a couple of cars. Here's a couple of photo's showing the beading:

    Whatever happened to........?

    Interestingly FT86Speedfactory have 10% off this weekend:

    Whatever happened to........?

    It's an exact copy, so yes it will leave holes exposed.

    Whatever happened to........?

    3d Carbon bought the complete kit design from 5 Axis / Five:AD. You can order the 3d Carbon version of the lip from FT86Speedfactory, here: http://www.ft86speedfactory.com/five-ad-rear-spoiler-various-colors-2013-frs.html#.XPA-EIj0nAQ As for the car, it looks familiar but I also haven't seen it for a while.
  12. If only you didn't get a staggered setup, otherwise I'd have had your arm off at that price.... Oh well 😢 Good luck with the sale as that's a bargain with tyres as well.

    Rear Caliper Options

    About £130 as the calipers only needed painting. However i'd avoid BCS as their service was terrible and the finish is crap. There are a couple of other places to use, Godspeed Brakes being the one that springs to mind.

    Rear Caliper Options

    Hi Stu, Assuming you've gone for the CP9200 caliper with 330mm disc (not the larger 355mm setup). The best and cheapest option is just to keep the standard rear calipers & paint them. The rears don't really do a lot or generate anywhere near the amount of heat that the fronts do, therefore making a rear BBK pointless (looks aside). If you buy AP's rear caliper setup, I expect it will substantially change the brake bias with the CP9200 setup. On this note the AP Rear disc's are actually bigger than the front discs at 335mm. It will however work with the larger 6 piston 355mm setup. You could also do what I've done, which is get a set of the STi rear Brembo calipers, this has a slight affect on brake bias but it's hardly noticeable. More information can be found on my build thread: https://www.gt86.org.uk/forums/forums/topic/4097-will300s-subaru-brz-build/?do=findComment&comment=105056

    So - visiting Japan. Tips?

    It's definitely worth while getting a Japan Rail Pass (you'll need one each), if your going for a couple of weeks. You can get a green class (1st class) pass, however you need to book the seats prior to getting on the train (atleast an hour before hand). You can get the pass here: https://www.japan-rail-pass.com/?currency-code=GBP Whilst your on the site, order a Sim card & a couple of Suica cards (I spent something like £80 over 3 weeks on subways & trains, when I couldn't use the JR Pass). The pocket wifi might also be useful, however most of the accommodation I stayed in included them. Also the Suica card can be used for various things not just transport, which is really handy. That is until you find out some of the arcade machines accept them.... 😄 This is a good website to use for reference & finding various things to do: https://www.japan-guide.com/ If you're spending a couple of days in Tokyo, make sure you visit Tokyo Bay (Odaiba). You can get the subway there and visit Shinonome Autobacs, Toyota Megaweb & historic museum (this is in the shopping center opposite), DiverCity Plaza to see the massive Gundam and Gundam museum. Then finally head to Aqua City Odaiba and have dinner on the top floor, where you can look over the bay and see the rainbow bridge at night. Depending on who you are going with (this won't work with children), make sure you take a look at the Mario Kart tours: https://maricar.com/en/faq_shinagawa.html - you will need an international drivers license for this. One final point, on my trip I ended up staying in alot of different locations, whilst this was good for sight seeing it meant alot of traveling. If I was going for 2 weeks, I'd probably stay one week in Tokyo and then stay the 2nd week in Osaka - Osaka is a brilliant base as the bullet trains are so efficient you can do Kyoto, Kobe, Okayama & Hiroshima within an comfortable train journey (Osaka to Hiroshima is 90 minutes).
