Connecting at Sebring

Yeah I’ve never hit ice mode on with my Z, and I’ve all four rotors smoking when coming off the track. I would suggest try what Rusty said and see

I was thinking overnight: The ice mode issue has gotten much worse since I put in my Nismo Pro Diff set for 2way. Iím wonder if thatís contributing to my issue since it changes lockup dynamics on decelerations. Luckily itís adjustable to 1.5 way, and it may be worth changing. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Does anyone in the St. Pete., Tampa or Sarasota Bradenton area have a 370z knowledgable mechanic they can recommend. I purchased a 370z road race
project that needs a fair bit of finishing work. I need someone to thoroughly
go through the car and tell me what shape it is mechanically. I can't seem to
find anyone in the Sarasota Bradenton area. Any suggestion is appreciated.

Elmo and I will be out end of May. For your brake issues, What's your pad/tire combo and when you press the brakes are you stabbing them or rolling in the pressure (quickly, but not suddenly)? I know that ice mode occurs on a brake tire mismatch and when you shock the ABS. If the initial bite is too aggressive, try a Japanese pad. It sounds dumb, but Japanese pads don't tend to bite as hard initially, but the stopping power and consistency is there. Elmo and I have run Winmax W5's with a lot of success.

Good seeing you again. Both me and eddie ended up with a low 2:32 on our last session. To make you feel better I was talking with the challenge cars and they usually run 2:07-2:08ís and today there couldnít get under 2:13
