Currently only have EBC Yellow stuff in stock brakes. They are next on the list, once I have confidence with my brakes I'm guessing I'll be a couple seconds quicker. The brakes are THE biggest weakness on track, stock brakes suck ass.


Darn that sucks to hear the stock ones aren't even the slightest bit ok haha. My plan was to "upgrade" my 165 brakes to the 185 setup and run carbotech xp12/10 and hopefully that would work for a while. I wouldn't be happy if I burned up $400 worth of pads in a single track day. I run on a local track that is known for being one of the worst on brakes. Looking forward to what you decide for brakes.

Pretty big update for the car, finally hustled up enough to get my brakes. I had a lot of ideas of what direction I wanted to go but in the end I wanted a bolt on kit that was offered off shelf. Really did not like that all DIY options had some flaw. Anyways, went with K-Sport and do NOT regret it one bit. Went with the 14" kit with 8 pot calipers in Black. Wanted a color that wouldn't change after being baked at the F1 Curcuit. Their kits are all forged one piece calipers now with two piece rotors. Went with the race pad option so now the car makes awesome school bus sounds. Initial impression is "HOLY FU**" I have yet to track them but will in December. Petal is a bit softer but has insane power now. All my wheels fit thank god but I did have to pull off all the wheel weights, there's about a credit cards clearance. Onto the photos!

This kit will set you back about $1800. There's a ton of options all of them bigger except one smaller option.

May be a dumb question but is that rotor backwards? Edit: by that I mean, is it on the wrong side?

The direction of the slots on the face of the rotor does not matter for the proper direction of rotation. The internal cooling vanes (between the front and back faces of the rotor) determine the correct direction for rotor rotation.

I knew that was important but never stopped to think that the internal vanes could go opposite direction of the slots/holes

So as you can see I am a victim of the photobucket ransom. I do apologize guys, pretty much makes my whole build thread suck. I know Im not the only one that is highly upset.
