David,

I'm glad to hear you hit the track with your car. Nice pictures. Where were your oil temps and IC inlet temps that day?

My car is a squatter like yours. Over the winter, I plan to remedy that, most likely with helper springs. I have 31 mm rear bars as well. You may already know about this, but Rebel racing offers a kit to put coils over a stock (non-threaded body) Bilstein shock. Here's their site:

I have stock brakes with proper front ducting, Porterfield R4 pads and Motul 600 brake fluid. I, too, get a little softness in the pedal at the end of a 1/2 hour track session, but it's not too objectionable. I switched from Ate Super Blue to Motul, and it made absolutely no difference. I may try switching pads to something different (or try another trick or two) to see if I can "insulate" the fluid a bit better. If that's not successful, I'll have to go to different brakes, which I really don't want to do. The balance and feel of these brakes is fantastic, and I like that they're relatively light (and that I own them!).
