Default STS Track Car - Brakes, cooling and other track issues

Last year I had a 2013 ST that i tracked some with no issues. I sold it and purchased a 2012 STS. The STS has sway bars, coil overs, steel brakes, larger Giro disks and aftermarket pads. I typically do time trials with a max of 3 laps but usually our tires are done after the first lap. I need a pad that is good for the road course and autocross but won't freak out the ABS.

I also made another post about my cooling issues.

Lastly there seems to be quite a bit of front end lift at speeds in excess of 100MPH is anyone else experience that issue? By even my ST was light in the front at speed even with it huge factory splitter.

Any information would be helpful.

I have not tracked my car in many years since I have been racing another car just don't feel the need. But I used EBC Yellow stuff pads on the track and street, with Giro Discs, they are still on the car with no issues on the street they are quiet.

The radiators dump into the front wheel arches. So if you can vent the front fenders, it will greatly reduce lift (and heat) from the front to reduce lift.

Hawk and Pagid have some good options. It might be worth your time to swap out the pads before/after the track (when doing pre-track prep) to run a more aggressive pad.
