Although Mike put in a new hose, it came with stern instructions to get silicone hoses and switch to distilled and install the factory undertray.

I gathered some things.



When swapping the hoses, I learned that the replacement wasn't going to last long anyway.



But, new hoses on.



System flushed and filled with distilled and water wetter.



And the undertray is back on.



I also bled the brakes. No cool pictures of that.

Did all of that Friday night. Saturday was a throwback meet bbq with some friends.





Sunday I was at Willow Springs for the next round of GTA.





I parked in a good spot as almost all the other Subarus were nearby.

Second round of GTA was fun. Enthusiast AWD was the largest class with 7 competitors.

This was my first time at Big Willow. It's an interesting track. Definitely a track where experience pays off.

First session, I ran a 1:44.952. Second session was much hotter and I wasn't able to improve. Work wanted me in Boston Monday morning. I had to leave at lunch to be able to make my flight. I don't think I would have improved in the later sessions anyway.

I ended up finishing 6th. I was at least able to collect some points and I am 2nd in the series.

Some pictures are already beginning to surface.

Why did he want the stock tray back on? Aero or for pulling hot air out of the bay?

Better aero for cooling and downforce/grip. But it also increases safety of the track by catching fluids. Safety was also a point for switching to distilled water. Coolant is slippery.

Yea I know for motorcycle track days, its required to switch to distilled over coolant.

Pictures from GTA. There's one photographer that hasn't posted yet. If they caught me, I'll add them to the album at the end.

When I got home from GTA, I noticed something not great.



Kinda frustrating. Apparently hoes will do that. Even if they are DBA.

Ordered new rotors.



Got them swapped out. Now my front brakes match my rear brakes a little better. This should also not crack like total pieces of ****.



With the cracked crap off, I was able to get a better look at how bad they are. I found it interesting that there we no cracks on the back sides. On the driver's side, there were 2 cracks. On the passenger side, there were 4 cracks. All going through hoes.

I took a few pictures and made an album: https://imgur.com/a/H0bqvYL

But the worst part...



THESE ****ING PIECES OF **** HAD ALMOST NO WEAR ON THEM!



The problem is fixed... moving on.

I also got something exciting.

Did you buy the rotors new?

Will they not warranty that?

I bought them second hand.

I doubt they will warranty them with racing usage. If they do, it will probably be another pair of rotors which won't do me much good.

Lesson learned.
