Thanks for the comments guys. Yea I'll take some more videos sometime... its a really fun car to drift with.

I'll be rolling my rear fenders again in effort to get rid of all the rubbing, its difficult. I should be running a stiffer setup suspension too. I'll have to get stiffer springs and shocks / struts eventually.

I can't wait to get the new brakes on it, running some crappy pads and rotors now and it really sucks.

Yea they are factory though, I plan on upgrading to much thicker bars on the front and mildy thicker in the rear. The car handles very well so I don't want to go too crazy and throw it off balance either.

Brakes came in today , but still waiting on the pads (EBC Yellowstuff)

Can't wait to install my brakes are horrible right now, not grippy enough.

Hmm I've had bad experiences with drilled rotors developing hairline cracks along the holes. Good luck though, the build looks fun.

Me too, I had zimmerman drilled rotors on my E38 and after like 25k they showed some hairline cracks...

I talked to people with these rotors and they seem to be pretty good with the cracking, i guess the chamfer on the holes works out too.

I'll see how it goes, rotors are cheap enough to change out wherever and I drove on my last ones cracked very hard... I don't do any high speed runs in this car im not too worried about it.

What I do deal with is heatsoak on the rotor blanks I have now, so I'm hoping this helps cool them down a little better as my only other option is using bigger rotors and calipers and that's costly right now i rather not. Plus doubt they will fit with my wheels

Many of them sad that for good brakes, you need good pads, so I believe that pads got something to explain why someone's rotor cracked a little bit.

But nice project! I really love people who care about their car, not those ones with stance and shiot.

Thanks, Yeah I made sure I got really good pads, I was going to get more common performance pads but I went with EBC Yellowstuff this time to try them out, some people swear by them and some people hate them too haha.

I'll find out and go from there.

Added 3 minutes later:

i seen you had/have s2 clutch, so i would like to know how does it works/feels, it attach faster(so with less friction) than a normal one?

It was a great clutch, felt pretty oem grabbing had a little chatter but i think because it was brand new...

it was good tho didn't feel different.

I don't have that clutch anymore went to the m3 engine and used the OEM sachs clutch which I broke, don't know if I mentioned that above, then I changed it for an E34 M5 sachs clutch which I have now and its the best so far

very smooth
