  1. Performance Brake Kits for BRZ by Project-Mu On CARiD
    It doesn't make any difference if you've just started your new crazycool racetrack performance project, or find yourself right in a middle of it, or even if you already entered its final stretch. It's always a right time to optimize your vehicle's braking performance by throwing some...
  2. 1st track day

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Took my 100% stock BRZ to my first track day ever. It was new for me and the car. This track is a 1.4 road loop with lots of twists and turns and 2 straights. As I gained confidence in my driving ability I started really tossing her around. I was able to lap a few cars and stayed right on...
  3. Brake fade

    Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Hi all, I fitting a master cylinder brace and Hawk HPS pads at the end of April in readiness for the May 11th weekend at the Dragon's tail (Deals Gap). The difference was night and day and the car stopped twice as fast and had a nice firm feel on the pedal. While I was at the gap, the brakes...
  4. How do they hold up?

    Subaru BRZ Engine and Technical Discussion
    How robust is the clutch in the BRZ, transmission and diff? I know there are some pretty stout turbo builds, what cracks, and at what hp/tq levels? How does the car hold up to tracking regarding oil-temps and wheel bearings and things like that? For comparison, when I was out at Spring...

    New Member Introductions
    Hey guys, glad to be apart of the BRZ community. Picked up my BRZ up in Asheboro North Carolina last week at Strider Subaru and drove it back home. Sold my 2001 Audi A4 for it and couldn't be happier.
  6. Upgrade front or rear brakes, OR both?

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Is it fine to just replace the front brake system and leave the rear stock? Would this screw up the balance of the car? Two brake system from stoptech/brembo will be about 2k, but all 4 would be, well almost double. That is ALOT. I think the brakes on the BRZ are trash. They FEEL great and give...
  7. Car and Driver : Lightning Lap - Virginia International Raceway

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Going to be interesting to see how the Subaru BRZ does in the LL1 category vs the Fiat 500 Abarth, Ford Focus ST, and Genesis 3.8 R Spec. It's even more interesting to see how the LL1 cars compare to the LL2 cars.

  9. Cheap/Free mods thread

    Subaru BRZ General Discussion Forum
    Well, I did a quick search on here, and I didn't see one of these threads started, so I figured I would. We have one on a similar thread that I belong to, and it is a pretty good thread. Basically, it is a thread for posting modifications that can be done for nothing or next to nothing. I'll...
