Another option is to get a track tune which turns off most of the stability nannies. Shaun at AED Performance does these, not sure who else.Latest change to my car was taking off my old Hawk Performance Ceramic pads that were woefully inadequate for track duty (but worked great as a low dusting/noise street pad). Replaced rotors with new Centric blanks and installed the highly recommended G-Loc R12/R10 front and rear combo for track duty, with the compound-compatible GS-1s when on the street.
Definitely a huge change for at last Weekend's Driver's Edge HPDE at MSR Houston, never experienced any brake fade but I had to adjust my modulation a bit as these are bitey! Had some AdvanceTrac issues even in "sport" mode so I decided to turn it off, which did cause a couple of harmless educational spinouts on different sections of the track but I adapted quickly. I still felt the computer applying brakes at certain times but it was very rare. I guess I need to look more into the Boss ABS Race module or adding a switch on Pin 6 or whatever it was I stumbled upon.
Good point, I'm considering intake/exhaust in the future so I will need a new tune anyway. Worth investigating. Although last event I had some issues with my tuner failing midway and causing a scare. I was running the stock OEM tune as I was cheap during the expensive gas summer and running 87 octane on the street.Another option is to get a track tune which turns off most of the stability nannies.

I was lucky enough to find a used module from another TMO member so perhaps also post a wanted ad here. It's a really nice piece as it seems to play well with sticky tires better than the OEM unit. Maybe that just a placebo effect I use to justify the money I spent. But hey, whatever works
I also use the G-Loc track/street pad swap and so far it's worked very well. No pulsing or any telltale signs of pad transfer issues so far.
