Thanks team! Shame you don't make a system for the IS-F

Default Stoptech Sport Pads

December 1st, 2017
Stoptech Sport Pads

My front brakes pads were due for a change as they were at 3mm. I measured my rotors and they still have over 1mm thickness left in them so I decided to just do pads. I wasn't too keen on the oem pads as far as the performance for how much dust they made. I've ran Stoptech products in the past and have been satisfied so I decided to give these a shot.
So far I'm loving them, the bite is awesome and the dust seems to be less than OEM Brembo. The bite is solid and nice for daily driving, I have yet to really put consistent pressure on them though.

ZITO ZF01 18x10 - 285/35/18 Square Setup

I've been waiting for these to be available in 18 for some time now and finally they are. Weighing in at 23.8 lbs. for 18x10 et42 with an obnoxious load rating, I'm satisfied. I haven't done a HPDE since I'd rather go on a wheel and tire setup that will be suited for it, as well as economical as far as rotation and flipping. The wheel and tire together weigh 53lbs, 3.5 lbs heavier than the OEM 12' fronts and 2lbs heavier than the OEM rears. A small price to pay for going from 225/255 to 285 all the way around in my opinion. Despite them being heavier by a couple pounds the driving dynamic of the car is much more fun, although I don't have any data to really back that up.
With the overall diameter in mind 285/35/18 was the only choice. I've seen 285/30/18 be ran but that's just too small for me as well as the 275/35/18 setups.
Well, with some semi-extensive fender and wheel-well treatment these fit no problem at my low ride height.
I opted for gloss black to go with more contrast from the gunmetal I was running before, and ceramic coated them for cleaning ease.
enjoy:

Figs Engineering Front LCA Rear Mount Bushings

I've had these since before I even got the IS-F, as they and the rest of the Figs Essentials kit was intended for my IS250 project that I got over.
I decided to tackle them today since I had some time and built up the confidence after watching Lam Le's DIY on YouTube.
I'm now kicking myself I haven't installed these earlier. The steering is sublime and brake control is on another level. With every mod I do to this car, I fall in love with it all over again. It's crazy to think there's SO much potential in this chassis.
Anyways, on to pictures:













Upon installing them, I had the unpleasant surprise of finding coolant all over the bottom of the car and dried up on the trans. I looked in the engine bay for a leak (Valley Plate) but there were literally no signs of a leak.

CCSR Prototype Grille and Fiji Green Calipers

Couple mods I did to start the year right, and I'll have more detailed pictures when these are completely done:
Got the same mesh as the CCSR (small hexagons) and used an OEM grille emblem to try to emulate the CCSR front. A fun discovery was finding out the plastic mesh grill center weigh's 1 lb. With the mesh weighing nothing, that's 1 lb cut. Unfortunately the mesh I ordered was just a little short on the upper corners so I have to re-do it but this works for now.

I had BMW Fiji Green on my Brembo's when I had my M5, so it was time to do it on the F. I still have to have the Brembo stickers cut, but for those that are curious I'm going to run the Race Bubble text (classic text). I'll update the post once they're all done.


PS. Wheels are still wet from a fresh wash.
