awesome what a great bonding experience!Always love to see another company supporting TMO!
I’ll keep my submission short and sweet. Got into autocrossing locally right out of high school on Long Island but got away from the sport working weekends to get through college and graduate school. Years later my father picked up the hobby and began autocrossing his forester XT. Fast forward to today, we’ve been autocrossing competitively for the past 4 years together on the SCCA tour. We started out racing in street classes but most recently have been developing a S197 for CAM-C with the insights of many TMO members. After unsuccessfully trying pads from Porterfield, Stoptech, and Powerstop we could definitely benefit from some EBC stopping power!
For the pic submission, I’ll include alittle before and after action:
Before Running D Street with sketchy brakes (check out dads face )View attachment 71081
After, Running CAM-C where we are giving everyone a run for their money in a “lowly” V6 pony. Dad’s more comfortable these days but we still could use more stopping power lol

It would be the day this photo was taken:

This was taken in early March 2021 during my second ever HPDE event, and was the morning after buying this car and hitting the track with paper plates and 40 miles on the odometer. Its a story for another day as to how a wild twist of fate and circumstances allowed that to happen, but I'll just say I feel blessed and grateful.
I lost my dad to rapid onset leukemia in 2020 and it had been a royal struggle to cope. Tracking is something I had always wanted to do with him but the finances were never there to support it. When life threw us a bone in early 2021, it made things possible and we jumped head first into the track world - but it still felt bittersweet despite how much fun it is. The day the above photo was taken was the first time in a very long time that I felt at peace with a sense of closure. I still get that same feeling of calming peace and closure to this date anytime I am in that car - its hard to explain.
I have since learned, and continue to learn, quite a bit on both the driving side and mechanical side with this car, and have put a lot of work into transforming it into the track car I want. Every day is a new favorite moment
