How do you like those 6pot ARMAs? They cost a bundle?

it gives a more linear braking performance than the AP 9660 and better braking power but it could due to bigger pistons. performance on the track is great as I ran three 20 mins section and I did not feel the braking power is fading but definitely need a set of tracking brake pads. price of them are reasonable.

carbon fiber hood is on before the next track event. All i can say is the OEM hood is freaking heavy. Replacing just the hood already cut 10kg of fat. I also removed the OEM hood lock and used racing hood lock to secure the hood. the OEM hood struts were too strong for the carbon fiber hood, so I also replaced them with F82/F80 hood struts

Fitment looks decent, I've seen some CF bonnets with piss poor fitment/panel gaps

I like that you've painted it too, not a fan of completely exposed carbon bonnets, unless they're partially painted to show off carbon in some accent pieces (vents etc)

The fitment is 9/10 as the left fender gap is larger than the right fender gap. besides that everything is perfectly fit. I am not a big fan of exposed carbon fiber hood so I got it painted to keep the cars stock look.

Cpm official web site should have information on them. As for the larger radiator I do see a decrease of about 5 to 10C on water temperature. Also see a decrease on intake air temperature. I would suggest adding meth to lower IAT as it is way more effective

Having been lazy logging in these days, but I did make some minor upgrades on the car.

I upgraded to a bigger radiator to lower the intake air temperature and hoping the car can last few more laps on the track.



Also replaced all the control arm bushings to aluminium bushing including the subframe bushing as I do need a better road feedback on the track.



Also I bought the F82/F80 brake cooling kit from Revozports and modified it to fit on my car. The cooling plate need to be cut quite a big portion to make them fit, so I wouldn't recommend people doing it as it's way too expensive but once again, I need to extra brake cooling on the track.









Trying not to make too much damage to the oem parts when installing the kit


Found a very subtle place to mount a universal brake air duct
