Cool Carbon Pads

Happy to report back on these. I was impressed. Huge improvement over stock. Very low levels of dust even after 4 sessions on the track. Have used Hawk and Porterfield pads before. Hawks were superior on the track but TONS of brake dust and squeal. These seem like a nice upgrade over stock for the car that does the occasional driving event. No squeal or noise. Installed on used OEM rotors. I followed the bed in instructions and the next day drove 100 miles to NHMS. Definitely heat cycled them on the first session. Came back the garage smoking. Felt even better throughout the day. Installed these along with a fresh flush of Motul RBF600 and brakes were no longer a concern. My tires on the other hand have seen better days...

Straightened & Refinished Wheels

Wheels look quite a beating at NHMS last track day. Track is brutal. Left front had a visible bend in the outside lip. Had all 4 straightened and refinished. Was so tempted to go with some wild color but came to my senses. Might pick up a spare set for some dedicated track tires and get funky with the color of those. These look like new now. Next up... some new sneakers mounted. 4S or Cup 2's is the question. Haven't decided yet.

Hands down the best looking OEM wheels you can put on a Boxster. The refinishing looks amazing!
