The fronts too, and they suck. I think anyone I've talked about my car to, they only complaint I have is the brakes, bad feel and even worse fade. I think a BBK or at least some brembo take offs will be in the future.

Probably goign to pick up some small spacers too to kick them out just a hair more.

My car has an impreza badge on it. I have little concern for how they name it. But no, just the wrx trim, no base impreza for me.

So after a few years my wrx is ready to get a running engine. In the next week or so i can take the next step and get it in the car.

From there, the exhaust, intercooler setup, and turbo should go on and be ready for wiring, and fuel system upgrades.

Hopefully by the Pittsburgh Vintage Gran Prix. Which reminds me, there hasnt been any talk about it this year for registering and what not. Any info?

Do they make something similar to simulate a bigger rotor?

And what happens to the silicon glue when those undersized brakes get hot? That could cause some wheel and brake damage if/when it falls the **** off

Looks like we got the makings of another product then! I think we should make spinner brake rotors that way they keep spinning when you stop!

Sounds like KERS! Will they also transfer the energy back to the drive wheels later?
