I think next steps if I enjoy how she goes around the track is, monoballs, and pads/rotors.

Do I need to flush the ABS with INPA? Is it okay if I don't?

If you're doing a regular flush then INPA is not a must. If you do as I said (pressurize and bleed until air comes out) then INPA is a MUST.

Alright,

Just finished the track day. My thoughts were, the tires were very sticky, it was a warm day. 92 degrees by my 3rd session. The issues I began noticing, the abs was starting to come on most of the turns, the stock brake pad fade was hurting my confidence. And sway bars need to change if I am to push it harder, it felt wobbly on the turns. It could be my bushings, but they looked in good shape last inspection.

Next upgrades will definitely need brakes and sway and camber the front, the outside of my tire after my first session was noticibly hotter than my inside, checked with a temp needle.

I'll look into monoballs after another day. Nonetheless, I was surprised at how agile a 4100 pound fully extended leather etc. handles, then takes me home in full comfort.

Lol! Spot-on for stock configuration! Hauling down 4100#s repeatedly from 140mph to 60mph will cook our stock pads.

To recap, what tires did you end up using? And post a pic of the fronts outer shoulders.

You mean traction control during turns? Or abs while braking? Also note pad fade can be easily fixed with race pads. Pedal fade means better fluid is needed (or proper bleeding, met a guy at the track who said he was boiling srf, when asked how much fluid had been used for bleeding he said half a bottle = fail).

If you meant traction control then competition mdm will allow most conditions but drifting at the track. Highly recommended. Or if you're confident enough then dsc off.

I went with federal rs-rr 245/40 front 275/35 rears. I'll take a shot of the shoulders tomorrow. I used two liters during the bleed and did the Piston compression and full bleed with inpa. It was stopping further and further but pedal feel was still firm. I'm sorry! I mean traction control! I'm not confident enough as this was the first time taking the car on the track. I'll go for it next time though.

Track tires??

The links in your pictures are broken, not showing.

After a day at Buttonwillow, a good setup tire should look like this:
