D2 Racing Sport 8 pots with 356mm fronts. Braided lines and Castrol SRF fluid. Just running them in but the feel of the brakes is just great. Can´t wait to try them on a circuit. Standard brakes in the rear for now, just Pagid DS2500 pads. This is on the BNR34.
The BCNR33 runs AP Racing 343mm discs with 6 pots in the front and braided hoses all round. Also Castrol SRF in the system on this car.

standard at the minute with ferodo ds2500 pads, not bad for road use but after a spirited drive it's clear to see they'd struggle on track.

Soon to be upgrading to a K-sport 8 pot front kit depending on what size disks they utilise, i'm going for the biggest disks i can under my 18" nismos basically.

Over the years i have run a number of brake combinations and ap were the preffered choice until i tried StopTech's i Know run 355mm all round 32mm front and 28 rear i think and it is far the most balanced braking i have had on any 33 or 34 for overall performance and feel. Highly recomended thanks.

Yes I've got Endless 6-pots on the front and Endless 4-pots on the rear on the GTR, but I have not driven the car enough to make a balanced judgement. My tuner swears by them, and I'm tempted to believe him coz his cars tend to set pretty good circuit times.

I've got Endless 6-pots on the front of the FD, but standard RX7 brakes on the rears. Stopping power at the circuit is noticeably better since I started using them, especially in the wet, surprisingly.

But they're not exactly cheap...

On the Soarer there are standard Supra brakes fitted, front and rear.

Hi guys i have Endless brakes on my car and i think i have 8 pot on the front and 6 pot on the back.

They are very expensive from what i hear.But this is my first time i have had endless brakes and it nearly put me out the window.

But in my opinion i think they are very very good brakes.

Standard for me please... if my wallet permits, and the car stays roadworthy long enough for me to think about upgrading the brakes, i'm sure i will probably spend the money on something completely useless which will add unnecessary weight to the car and see me skid along the road heading for a whoops i didnt see that kirb/tree/policeman moment.

Front: AP 6pots with 362mm fully floating discs and DS2500 pads or occasionally Pagid pads
- But I'm thinking of changing them as they don't last long enough on a track day before I have to come in

Rear: standard R33 Gt-R

do braided brake lines really make that much of a difference? How about a master cylinder stopper?

Braided lines are probably the best VFM mod I think. Yes it really makes that much difference
