Thanks for the very nice compliment Shane, although not deserving of that level of praise. But thanks anyway.
 
The brakes are very strong wiping off speed effortlessly with no fade with continuous use even on fast downhill runs. Combined with the largest hilux master cylinder they offer great bite and feel with a hard pedal. I upgraded from the Revolution brake 13" wilwood kit . I wasnt totally happy with the creaking wilwood calipers and the mushy feel of the brake pedal.
 
Sadly cant make the wednesday night meet this time. Just arrived  now from Thailand holiday.
Have been too busy laying on the white beaches, snorkelling, drinking mojitos, consuming copious amounts of Thai food and being massaged frequently and expertly by lovely tanned Thai lasses.
 
Enjoy tonight,  hope to meet you all soon and check out everyone's rides.

Thanks for the kind compliments guys. Appreciate it greatly.

Cant believe I still havent made it o a meet yet. Its pretty slack really. 
Since the last post I have had the  Wolfkatz rear brake upgrade with slotted RX8 rotors installed. (Very nice product)
Received new 18x9.5 +22 front and 18x10.5 +0 rear wheels recently.
Deciding between FalkenRT615 or Toyo R888 in 265/35/18 and 315/30/18 tyres
 
280 rwkw is fun indeed. The car goes through rear tyres at a phenomenal rate though.
However its the power delivery and torque of the 2.2 stroker motor with the twin scroll turbo that I am most happy about.
Very responsive and strong torque only a twitch of the accelerator pedal away.
 
The car is presently being dyno tuned at JEM on 100octane fuel to max out the current GT3076R turbo.
 
Future plans include upgrade to a Forced Performance HTA3076R if I get used to the power later...it never ends damn moneypit!

Ahhh.....I'm guessing it's 30% Toluene (additional octane). Very cool dude. 3SGTE's in this guise really respond well to higher octane fuels.
