That looks even better on yours! and they feel amazing on mine too. As for the rear brakes my funds have all been going into my engine and a turbo, sorry for slacking on that.

Just an update, I went on a 900 mile round trip from MD to SC and back. All is still well and brakes feel great!

What are the offset/backspacing of your wheels? How much clearance from benind the wheel spokes to the caliper? Nice job on the brake upgrade.

Damn! I'd be so down with this if I didn't have to drive my car through the winter on 16's. Those look beautiful. Well done man.

what is your progress on a larger front brake kit that will fit the 16inch z wheels?
since i run those in the winter and my 17s in summer this would be ideal

Sadly I have not had the time to look into it much yet. Too many other things going on. I do really want to work out a setup for my vert tho.

could you grind down the caliper to clear the 16s or it to big for that?

WOW those brakes look awesome.

And a little framiliar .....

i was highly considering doing this...until i found out the rotors weigh twice as much as stock. maybe if your boosted it wont matter but im na and worked too hard to make rotating eq light as possible . sorry. maybe after i get spray this would be worth it.

Yeah there is no denying it is a heavy setup. My stockers were overheating at the track though and an expensive light setup was not in the budget. I also am going to be boosted though. I know it also can affect handling but the a few adjustments to the Teins and it is still just as fun to drive.

I still have the car and am running the front brakes. Aside from them being pretty heavy I love them, the car was even on daily driver duty for a while and everything held up as I thought. I gave up on the rear setup because I purchased a set of SSBC rear brakes for like $250. I am actually in the works building a turbo engine for the car.

Mine will be on DD. Do you notice a big difference in the weight (ie. Off the line / cornering / etc?)
