Stage 4 or more and standard brakes?

I'd look at upgrading the stock brakes before you go over 600bhp.

Really? How often do you use 600+bhp on the road?

For track, maybe if you chasing times, but you can drive around brakes not performing 1/10th better.

My preference would be the suspension... brakes are only good when the tyres are in contact with the tarmac ;)

Having said that, brakes are next on my list :nervous: just waiting for the standard ones to die.... they are holding up well.

Well he said distancing himself from the cometition without saying how the car was used.

On the road or on track, I just like to be able to stop ASAP. :)

If you can't use over 600bhp on the road often, why do people reccomend more power?

:D

If the standard brakes are not cracked and are working well, is it really worth changing them? I dont think so.... mine stops just fine :runaway:

I find it rare that I can use all the power on the road for more than a few seconds. That is why I am staying at stage 4

Just use and enjoy the car for a bit would be my suggestion....
Most definitely
