Had another great weekend racing last weekend.. This was the TPKC season finale, a Double Header race weekend at SpeedSportz in New Caney, just outside Houston.
My eldest boy runs Micro Swift, he had a disappointing Saturday but brought home 3rd in Sundays final, having only just lost 2nd when he overcooked it into the last corner of the last lap.. Anyway, it was great racing :burnrubber:

So tonight, I finally got around to working on the BRZ. I pulled that one caliper, split it, cleaned out the recesses for the seals and reseated everything. Bled that one caliper, and took it for a short (slow) test drive. Had to jump start the BRZ because of the dead battery :mad0259: but the test drive went fine after that. Brake pedal is a little spongy for sure and has more travel than I remember from before so brakes probably need to be bled once more before I call it good.
Overall I'm pretty happy with the result.. I'd like for the front to sit a little lower than it is right now but it is definitely better than before, hope the springs will settle after a little while.
Need to get an alignment and dial in a little negative camber up front.
Also still need to put the White Vinyl stickers on them but I'll give it a few days to check for leaks first. So far so good though.
So after sitting for over a month in customs, Fedex finally delivered half of my Japan Parts order.
Let the unboxing begin...
Finally, a brand new Genuine V5 wing!

Took the BRZ out to get an alignment, first headed to Kozmik Motorsports which isn't too far from my house.. While they were full booked and so couldn't do my alignment, they were a very cool bunch of guys who seem to really know their stuff.
In addition to tons of Subaru's, Evo's and GTR's, they had an Ultima GTR in the shop, complete with breathed on LS motor making over 1000hp.
Next stop was to see my GC. Again, no update on it, other than it having been moved outside. At least it is under a cover.
Several stops later, most of them told me they couldn't do it for a few hours or that my car was too low, I booked an apt at this place and look what pulled in as I was walking out.
It's not a 1LE but it is a ZL1. I have a ZL1 convertible on order, hoping it will be getting delivered in a few weeks; I'll be trading in the Mustang for it.
Finally found a place to do the job that day so had the wife call and cancel the apt. The guy who was to do it was also the owner of this cool old school Supra.
It got close to the ramps but it cleared.
They did a good job, a little pricey but I got to hang out and watch everything he did the whole time and chat, which was cool. They also recalibrated the steering angle sensor once the alignment was complete.
