Thanks! Totally agree. Going 'off' is a necessary evil...

I think we are finally going to get down to LS at the end of June with Speed Ventures. I think you said it's hard on brakes? For a two day event should I bring an extra set of pads and rotors? Have you had the BRZ out yet?

I haven't run with speed ventures, although I've heard they're a decent group. I'll be running at Laguna with trackmasters and HOD this year. I'm bringing the BRZ to Laguna on March 2nd.

Yes, Laguna is the hardest track on brakes by far. When I had the Evo, it was the only track that would boil my brake fluid over, and I would go through over 1/2 of my pad thickness in one day. Make sure you have new fluid, and if you can get anymore cooling for the brakes, it would be great. If your pads are new, you'll probably be ok for the weekend, but they'll probably be done after the event. If your pads are worn, I'd bring an extra set. Rotors will probably be ok.
