What Brake Systems do you use??
 
As title asks, what brake systems do you use? I'm talking in terms of kits, not individual rotor or pad upgrades. If you choose ' Custom' please feel free to elaborate below.

AP 6pots with 362mm rotors and DS2500 pads.:)

A VERY good brake set-up, but I should think so too, for the amount they cost!!!

Just wondering, what size disk are you using? and also, how are the brake bias? Is it too far in the front, or do you not feel anything different?

Bajie 22nd August 2006 04:53 PM

Actually, quite difficult to answer now.
Before I changed the rear discs, the car was a bit biased toward the front, not diving or anything drastic though.
Now, the only times I really have to lean on the pedal is on the M4 as there are several muppets on there. Max the car goes now is [honestly] 85mph if I'm lucky.
When I do brake though, there is no drama, just pulls up nice and quick so safety margin is definitely there.
Car really is wasted now. Never sees more than 4k rpm.
When the brakes were first put on, mechanic nearly tore some tarmac off the road when doing a "demo" for me. Good day, happy times :)

I was running standard front calipers with project Mu CCX pads, DBA4000 discs, braided hoses, 5.1 fluid and a master cylinder stopper and was actually really impressed with them. On track, they were performing as well as most with big brake kits and actually outlasted almost everybodys on the day, no overheating, fade, anything...

VSPEC-33 25th August 2006 09:26 AM

Standard brakes down here, but c'mon their Brembos for crying out loud! I havent taken it to racetrack yet, still working on other areas, but an upgrade is planned.

For occassional weekend trackwork im going to go for DBA4000 slotted rotors (OEM size) and Endless SSS pads front and rear. Possibly some braided lines and quality dot 5 fluid but im not sure if its neccesary for my uses.

jae 25th August 2006 10:58 AM

Keeping it simple
 
Stoptech 355 rotors with 4-pots & whatever pads Abbey stuck in 'em on the front.

Stock 2-pot Brembos with Ferodo DS2500 pads on the rear.

Simple and effective.

Hi Nick, do you get any squealing from this set up on the road??

hipogtr 29th August 2006 02:35 PM

Brembo 370mm/4pot F50 with Endless CC-R pads (front) and Brembo 328mm/2pot N1 with Endless CC-R pads (rear). Braided lines, DOT 4, etc. all round.
