I agree, but I can respect the dedication. That was all hand done IIRC.

This kind of **** is only ever said by people who haven't actually driven a car equipped as such.

Currently have Brembo's in the front, and my braking has improved significantly. Albeit with a little dive under hard braking, but regardless, a noticeable improvement.

Woah. Settle down big guy. It was a legit question. I wasn't hating at all. Just actually wondering because I've heard people talk about it on a wrx and that's why they go H6 upgrade in the rear before thinking about doing anything to the front.
I drive a lovely little 2.5 RS. I haven't driven a car equipped with 99% of the crap people on here talk about. That's why I ask questions.

Its only a panic brake situation where the trouble starts... or in hard braking during racing.

So with the upgraded calipers you can stop quicker but the back end gets squirrely easier?

I upgraded front and rear on my rex if you mash down on the brake pedal things get interesting. I had to do this when an old lady cut me off right after I did the install. I was not expecting the car to get flighty under hard braking it defiantly scared the crap out of me.

i blame the loss of my 05 on having brembo's only on the front, as i hadn't installed the rear yet.

pretty sure the ABS ****ed itself and the front wheels completely locked up

I dunno if this counts, but I owned a wrx with stock calipers all around and my current one has stocks in the rear and the 06 wrx brakes in the front. Which I believe are basically the subaru version of a brembo, correct me if I am wrong? and the braking on this car is much much better then my old wrx's...Well it was I desperately need new rotors and pads haha...

Thoughts on the covers, boys?


I'm still very much on the fence because I instantly miss the yellow down low.

I actually like my back end a lil squirrely ( I put braided lines, rotors, n some legit pads in the rear) So when I do a lil trail brake at the apex, she'll slide her a$$ on the throttle out

But to each their own right...
