Default Available brake upgrades,09 WRX ? ?

I am looking and not finding.(been searching).
Anything now available, or in the works that anyone knows?

Would like to upgrade for occasional high performance club track days at our local tracks.
Would love to get a Stoptech BBK, if there was one (which there is not at present).

Myles?

Occasional? Stick with good tires and track pads.

Yeah, the 08+ WRX has the Legacy GT brakes, doesn't it? With good pads, good tires and good fluid you should be okay I would think.

Nope, same WRX rotors...we were fooled by a misleading SOA email early on. Just think of them as wrx squeezers.

from looking at pics of the 08 wrx's, seems they have the same 2-pot, 1-pot setup from the 02-05 wrx's.

You're fine with stock calipers and a good pad/fluid I'd have to say.
