That looks like a great upgrade, but would it be nessesary to do something with the rear with such a big upgrade up front? would your balance suffer? if anyone with a brake upgrade could chime in that would be great. im going to assume that this is more of a bling thing then anything, not that there is anything wrong with that lol.

Bias valves are dirt cheap. Like $30.

Rear brakes don't do anything anyway.

It's not just bling. This would make a huge difference in stopping power. Stock brakes are not good enough for 250hp...I've had some sketchy moments.

Alright and would a kit like this require a bigger brake booster or brake master cylinder?

If someone has the measurement, I can get those brackets made probly half price or close...

Yea I'd love a set, but they're not exactly the cheapest... Although designing them wouldn't be the cheapest either...unless you had a waterjet :) They look pretty simple to whip up in CAD.

I'm going to need some brackets for my dynalites. Those look great, but i'll prob just end up hacking some out myself with the plasma cutter.

You will have to compare the volume that tahe new pistons displace over the old. You don't have to, but you should.

Do these cars really need bigger brakes? I can easily lock all four up on any given day with stock brakes.

They sure do. Lock up isnt the problem, fade, pedal feel and durability are. Once you get some powah you ll understand.

hrmmm i paypald the guy money for the brackets and he said he'd supply all the part numbers from summit to get a working set, $250usd for the brackets, then comes back and says i also need his custom rotor hats for another $293usd, then still need to buy rotors, calipers, lines, and pads...

asked for a refund, well over the $700usd for a complete setup as he stated

300zx front brakes ftw

300zx front brakes ftw

I totally agree. I got my 300ZX front calipers and rotors for 290 bucks shipped, slotted them and re-drilled them for 4 bolt on the mill at work, turned down the OD of a set of spare hubs to fit inside the rotor hats, made some simple spacers, and voila, cressida big brake kit for a whopping 375 dollars. I suppose other people would have to pay someone else to do the machining, but you could probably get it all done for a couple hundred dollars extra. so big whoop it's still a 500 dollar big brake kit that you can easily get parts for, is OEM reliable and the calipers have dust seals on the pistons (unlike wilwoods).

Got any pictures of the setup?

So, where's the benifit over some FC brakes? Sounds like a total rip-off to me.

If anyone on the board can make custom brackets instead of having to order them from the US, I'd be all in for this :)

Like I said, I can make any brackets pretty cheap. The thing is that is NEED the measurement, cause I don't have every possible brake parts sitting around to fork with.

Or, you can get the same set up from Adam:

I dont mean to bring this back up, but I just acquired a set of both caliper mounts and rotor hats from the guy on club4ag.
Im looking for someone to duplicate them and cut the cost down for Canadian fellows on here.
If any one does machining in Calgary PM me.
Oh and im looking for some to do some anodizing and powder coating as well.

these parts were not cheap to pick up from this guy, so if anyone is interested let me know. I will see what will go down.

Thanks

And I make some for cooper rotors and rx7 calipers... 200$
Works with both single piston RX7 and 4 piston aluminum GXL and Turbo II units
