the brake is simply useless, unless u are thhinking about a highly tune n/a, supercharge or turboing the car 200kw+ the car is light, four wheel disc, + engine brake should be enough for the car to stop. i probaly recommend to get some better disc rotor and better brake pad, this should be more enough for your car at the moment, plus you are running 17in wide tyre, the car will stop fatser because of more friction on the road, the power at the wheel is also reduce because of the wide tyre, you will brobably have about 70kw at the wheel, and if you can stop your car with 4 205/40r17 tyre and 4 disc brake, you have a very serious problem

the car will be turbocharged in the near future if i can get around to doing it.

im only doing the 4pot just to do something to the car


the standard brakes are fine and have no problems with it whatso ever.

but when you have alot of parts sitting around the house, you might as well put it to good use then having it collect some dust

I would check out SBC (Specialised Brake & Clutch) located at 82 Glossop Street St.Marys 2760 Ph: 02 96238071

or

Blacktown Hitech brake and clutch
located at 9/47 Third avenue Blacktown NSW 2148 Ph: 02 96213292

there are many others...

Don't forget that you would need to have a brake upgrade such as this engineered and in moost cases the suspension would need to be uprated to cope with the vastly improved braking ability.

WOW...

Cost, avaliability... rears?

How much will pads be?

Cause suzuki cost $180 for front pads and $380 for rears i was thinking of changing just for cheap pads!

Looks great!

<edit>
Oh and anyone that thinks the sports brakes can't fade hasn't taken on the might of Nebo / Glorious. These brakes were pretty much useless after a VERY spirited run. Actually these were 2 different runs.

You got them to glow?!!! FAAAAAAARRRRKKK!

You must've been belting down a mountain without engine braking or something. I'd imagine those brakes would've been useless.

I admit i was breaking extra hard to make them glow, but the first time they did it on there own... but i wanted a good picture, so went extra hard on the brakes... they look SOOOOO cool when u turn off all your lights, pitch black and the red glow of disc!

Anyway, would be nice to have a bigger disc glow........... so any info

I had recently installed wilwood 4 pot dynalite calipers with 280mm 2 pieces rotor, total i save about 1 kg in weight. As wilwood do not have a direct bolt on kit, the bracket holding the calipers to the rotor must be custom made. I am using 15" prodrive rim of offset 35. so i am quite sure those bro-s using 16" can definately clear. whoever is interested on how it looks can email me at [email protected]. i can send the photos i had taken. :D

Its not true that with 17" your car stops better. Infact, your brake distance increase.s The reason is bigger rims have greater rotating mass. Also 17s carries more weight which increase static and dynamic weight contributing to the increase in braking distance.
