Your fluids should all be fresh, including filters.

I recommend Castrol SRF brake fluid. It has a wet boil higher than many brand name high performance brake fluid dry boil points. If you don't bleed before every track event, the need for SRF is greater.

Brake pad should have at least 60% of the original pad material. The pad material acts as an insulator and protects the caliper. The thinner the pad, the greater the heat transfer t the caliper. OE pads are good for light to medium track use. Aggressive drivers and late brakers should be using track pads. Hawk DTC 70 front and DTC 60 rear or CobaltFriction XR1 front and XR2 rear.

Check your lug nut torque.
