Robert C had such a good time driving his G35 at Laguna Seca that he came back to ZCG for more track preparation! Since adding almost 200whp with a Vortech supercharger, it would prudent to upgrade the braking system. We are big fans of Stoptech’s brake kits and lucky for Robert one of our customers was willing to part with a lightly used ST60 (front) and ST45 (rear) caliper setup:
Stainless steel lines and larger cross-drilled/vented rotors (355mm) were installed at all four corners:
More shots of the front/rear calipers vs OEM:
The obvious difference in rotor/caliper size results in increased heat capacity and pedal feel. More importantly these big-brakes will ensure repeated, fade-free braking while running on the track!
They do look stunning behind the spokes as well:
We also installed a JWT flywheel and clutch:
With fresh brakes and clutch Robert attended his 2nd track day, this time at Sonoma Raceway:
Track day at Sonoma was incredible. Car was great and ran perfectly the whole time. She just loved sweeping up the hill to turn one and running through the esses. Powering and tracking out of the carousel then running her all the way from there to the brake zone for turn 11 is just…all I can think of to describe it is the word “happy”.
I was only doing 2:23 as a best lap but seeing as this is my second track day ever and my first time driving Sonoma, I’ll take it!”
Great work, Robert. We are happy that you can enjoy track days with confidence. The G looks superb out there!
