    as most of us in this section i regularly service my own car as i change the oil and filter every other track day.

    a few months ago i also did gear box oil and diff oils.

    its now been 12 months since a did all inspection 2 parts and think its time to do them all again. the question is except all the usuals on the list is there anything you guys do extra that's not the norm?

    someone mentioned rocker cover gasket is one to think about. any other suggestions?

    thanks ade

    Check ALL bushes and go around all bolts under the car with a torque wrench.
    Check Prop shaft donut, prop shaft gasket where it goes on to the diff for leaks (I would also re-grease the UJ), check rear CV's.

    I fit pads dry, the grease just attracts dirt and/or runs - especially not required if it's a track car IMO!

    The last set i had in which were also rs29's went in dry but do squeal a lot on the occasional road driving i do. Granted its not a lot just the odd weekend blast. lol
    Maybe they just a noisy pad. After a blasting on track they fine again

    I've found they are pretty quiet on my car, though I use a plain disc which may give a slightly different result. But they are a great pad on the road.

    Wouldn't bother with the rocker cover. If its not leaking then leave it alone.

    Everything else as you say is more about common sense.
