QCisf Build Thread *Lots of pictures/mods*

Here you go !
Yesterday at the track ! It was my first track day and I still can't believe how fun it was. The F is a track monster. I will have some more pictures will driving soon.
Little video recap of 2 laps. It was my very first track experience, feel free to leave me some advices on my driving!
Will have to slow down the mods a little bit, just bought my first house Not so bad considering I'm only 21 years old haha. Can't wait to wash the F in the driveway every saturday morning !
Freshly repainted calipers, new lug nuts & studs and a full detail (claybar, swirl remover, wax).
The car look cleaner than ever !
Nothing new. Only great pictures from monday at Napierville Dragway
I forgot to update my first post, but I don't installed my 245/275 PSS. I bought them, but finally runned my old tire (oem spec) to see if I will have rubbing issue. I don't rub at all with the 225/255 setup. I don't think 245 will be an issue in front, but 275 in the back will definitely need a roll. I don't even know why I don't rub in the back because my tire sit very flush to my unrolled fender.
Winter is finally away, switched back to summer setup.
Will be doing some maintenance during the week:
- Front & Rear brake pad
- Brake fluid complete flush
- Rear differential fluid flush
- Spark plug
- Replace my broken navigation touchscreen (new unit bought on ebay)
I have an appointment tomorrow to put my new Michelin PS2 on.
Full paint detailing is also scheduled!
Don't have any big update to do, just changed front pads in preparation for this weekend track day!
Here's some pictures and a video from saturday at Sanair racetrack.
It was the first 1/2 mile event to ever happens in Quebec.
I had some fun chasing my friend M5 during the lapping sessions.
It's been a while since I've make an update here because I didn't had a lot of the time for the F with the new house. I decided to make some subtile changes for 2016:
- Installed a Tom's gloss black rep diffuser (since I winter drive my F, I have 95% chance that someone will bump me next winter, so i didn't wanted to invest in a real carbon one).
- Installed RRracing USRS LCA bushing. Feeling of the car is incredible, definitely one of the first mod I should have done.
- Removed plasti-dip on the window trims and wraped them with Outmotoring tape. Very easy job, just take a little patience.
- New Michelin PS2 tires and Project Kics R40 lug nuts.
- Removed my Lamin-x film over the headlight. I will bring them to a friend shop in the next few weeks and he will make me some custom black housing (pictures to come).
- I will repaint my caliper in yellow with custom ''F Brembo'' stickers. I really love the actual orange, but I need some change (pictures to come too).
Installing the RRracing USRS with some friends
I should have some HD shots this weekend, there is a huge car event at Napierville Dragway on Saturday. I will keep you posted
Putco and Nokya make yellow bulb in 9005 (DRL) size. I would go with them as I tested both brands for my fogs and had very good results.
Here's some pictures from this weekend.
Hey guys, it's been a long time since I didn't updated here. I just finished paying the car so I will be able to mod it a little more.
I repainted the caliper in yellow and decided to give the G2 paint system a try. The finish of the paint once cured is awesome but the application is a bit touchy.
I applied some custom ''F Brembo'' decals to finish the look.
