Default ISC Big Brake Kits Reviews?

Hey Nasioc:

I'm looking for reviews with anyone who has used ISC BBK and how you like them, how well they hold up, etc. Let me know your thoughts, as I am strongly considering a set.

Thanks!

Makes me kinda nervous now. I wonder if anyone else can chime in. So far that is one case of bad vibrations with these brakes.

Usually people look for reviews before they buy something. Once you own something why would you care about reviews?

^ This. I am asking for reviews because I am in the market to upgrade my brakes with something better. I do plan to track the car as well as drive it on the street.

i've sold a few. in this business good results usually get zero reviews. bad results spread like wild fire.

What exactly are you looking for in brakes? And what do you have now?

A good pad with a cheap blank rotor with good fluid is all most people need for light track duty.

The ISC kit has one pad compound available. From what I gather it is strictly a street pad.

The ISC kit uses a small rotor. This means no increase in heat capacity.

What does the ISC kit do to brake balance? ISC specs the same kit for all 5x100 Subarus, including the LGT with it's big OEM brakes. One kit cant offer optimal brake balance for all of those cars which all use different rear brakes.

Just as an update, Porterfield will make pads for these calipers at $229 (for the RS4 compound).
