    Default Trackday

    Taking the astra on track for a few sessions soon and want to make sure I have everything to make the day as enjoyable as possible.

    The car currently is Stage 3 spec with a set of semi slick Nankang NS2R, whiteline RARB, lowered on Eibach springs and I have some ATE TYP200 fluid to go in aswell. The brakes are standard (Brembo discs and pads all round) is it worth getting braided lines and decent pads or is the standard setup sufficient? Also going to change the gearbox oil and service the car for a piece of mind.

    TIA

    The standard brakes will probably do the job you will probably experience fade at some point braided lines and fresh decent quality racing fluid will most definitely help

    Okay cool, haven’t used the standard brakes on track before. My track car has 266mm upgraded brakes with yellow stuff pads but obviously the astra brakes are much larger and a heavier car. Yeah I’ve bouhht some typ200 fluid which is racing spec. Same as what I use in my 106 GTi. Braided lines a good upgrade for the astras?

    Would do the braided lines for certain. I havent used the brembo pads before so cant comment on how they do on track, ive used yellow stuff and they were ok @ brands hatch but died on the ring. I now run ds2500's and havent had fade from them
