Default Element Tuning Custom Valved BC Coilovers and Carbotech XP-12 rear brakes

Element Tuning custom valved BC-BR coilovers for FRS-BRZ shipped Next Day Air from BC factory in Taiwan.



A huge thank you to Pete at BC North America for making quick work of this so we can race the Ultimate Track Car Challenge this week.

Custom made CarboTech XP-12 rear brake pads for FRS-BRZ



These should match up with with our front Brembo kit running Hawk DTC 70 race pads.

We had the suspension valved to handle a wide range of spring rates so I'm not sure what race setup we will settle on when running racing slicks.

Thanks,
Phil Grabow

The end links are adjustable so you can match them to your ride height. I'm not running low so I can fit some huge rubber therefore I extended them.

Fitment was pefect and all oem brackets were in place for the ABS wires and the brake lines.

I'm running some pretty serious spring rates so others setups make have different length springs etc.

As a side benefit there is some negative camber built into the lower mounts up front

Glad you got the rear brake thing sorted. I can't find anything for rear pads... I've got hawk hp+ in the front, but rear is still stock due to that.

Yeah, I was looking at that today and wondering why no one had tackled rear pads yet. Then I saw this posted. Good thing I was wrong!

Yeah braking was freaky deaky with the Hawk DTC 70 up front and oem in the rear. I couldn't sourc anything so the only option was to have them made for me. Give Ken at K&S Brakes a call and he can have the Carbotechs made for you in any of their componds (not just the ultra high friction race stuff).
