Good idea....

For tomorrow, are you driving the track or doing other business? Can your PSSs handle another track day?

Yup I have to wait on Mike for his friend with the lift to have some time.

Pretty much everything else is done except this and going to K-town to get the car aligned and cornerbalanced since I also added the adjustable camber plates up front.

HEY I don't consider a clutch change a "Mod" ........more like a "upgrade" or "enhancement"

I'm almost "finalized" though....

Track was dry no frozen damp or iced surface although it was -3c at 8hrs
I rolled out at 9 when the temp. had risen a bit
I was there with my son wich took his e36 ///M3 for his maiden trip on the NS. No need to tell you that mam (at home) wasn't feeling to happy

I did my few laps learning the track and ended up doing them flawless but at a slower pace in order to avoid unpleasant surprises . All in all a good moment with very light traffic but with Sabine and her big fat white superfast Porsche . I just stayed a few hours and went shopping in Lux. on my way home.

The problem that I have on the car since Spa is that my brakes are kinda pulsating when pushing hard rather then the smooth equal pressure I felt before. My guess is that the pads aren't up to their task on a trackday or several in my case

Sounds like your pads have built up deposits on the rotor surface. You just need to put some more kms on the rotors and wear off those deposits.
