Okay, after purchasing my coilovers and strut bars I was thinking the next best addition would be some good brakes(No reason to go fast if you can't stop). I drive a 1994 Integra, what brakes do you think would be best for a street car that I'm slowly modding for street performance, and weekend racing? I'm willing to pay for quality.
exactly how much are you willing to spend? $3000? if yes, get a good set of Brembro's.. 13 or 14 inch rotors and 4 or 6 pot callipers... if not answer and i'll offer more suggestions... :thumbs:
Woah, sorry I havn't been on for awhile, spring break :-). I had the
coilovers and struts put on my car, I have it sitting at a 1 1/2 inch drop.
I've noticed a major handling improvement, the struts really seem to make
my car seem super solid. Now back to the brakes. I was thinking about
brembo, because everyone I've ever known to have them has never had any
problems. I'm looking for a brake that would be good for the street, but
also good if I ever decided to try autocross(Long long way off...). Right
now I'm looking into the brembo, does the tire/wheel have anything to do
with what kind of brakes you need? Right now I'm thinking about replacing
my 17's with 18's and adding Nitto Neo-Gen rubber. So, basically I'm
looking for good street brakes, that would be great in the corners of a
turn if I was ever to race, that would work the best with 18's. Brakes are
probably the part of the car I know the least about... Any help would be
greatly apreciated. Also, I am willing to spend up to 2500$ I'm putting the
best suspension and brakes on my car(in my oppinion "best") as I can afford
before I make any engine major engine mods.
Thank you. :thumbs:
When you buy brakes, the thing to look for is how they handle heat. Fade is what you're looking to protect against. If you're looking to lower stopping distances, your rubber will make more of an impact than your brakes will.
JMHO, I have friends that have spent extreme money to put awesome brakes on their cars, some even being classic cars and muscle that had really bad brakes to begin with. When they were done they said it just wasn't worth it. I have driven a couple of the classic musclecars that my mechanic friend put new brakes on and they don't differ enough from my 442 to really make me wanna spend any money. Just a thought, make sure it's really worth it. :2cents:
442, Nice car. My dad owns one, not quite what year, I'm thinking 65-66
smokes the sh!t out of my Integra :banghead:
Please I could really use input from some people that have installed aftermarket brakes.
