Sweet! Good to hear.

I need to change the bearings, repack with a very high quality grease, reduct the front end, and then go play on the track and see what happens, I'm fairly confident I can get this issue under control. Problem is thee aren't many FC guys running a 13.25" two piece front rotor with hitemp track pads
Ok that explains it. I always thought two piece rotors cooled better. I thought that was one of the advantages.

Sounds like you need to swap over the hubs from either a Miata or FD lol.

Here are some charts with info about Winmax pads. I'm thinking about the W3.

I ended up buying Endless MX72 pads front and rear. I just did the RZ brake upgrade this winter and got it back on the road a few weeks ago. So far I love them but I'm still getting used to not having ABS anymore too. These pads don't squeal and so far they've stopped great.
