What would the bias be if I had rear tires custom manufactured out of Gummi Bears Mr. Smarty Pants!?? Anyways, it's good to know that the upgrade does make some difference. And for $300, it's a cheap one.

Oh and Dunky-poo.........

You cannot go into brake dork mode again. There are only two (2) local people allowed to go into "techno babble dork mode" That would be Micah, cuz he's one of them engineers and Rob from up in Newport because he is a closet ..........engineer.

that hurts my feelings ron, I'm the only true engineer!

BAH on you, just because I don't bore people with technobabble.

I think I will start talking about electromagnetic fields more often


not really I like my status, but you still suck

There is a big difference between BEING an engineer and acting like one. Micah and Rob are poseurs.

I think it sucks too, don't worry.


I imagine if I really liked it a lot, I wouldn't find it that hard. Although I chalk the difficulty up to not having something in front of you to visual like mechanical engineering has. They are so closely linked, yet understanding EE is so damn hard...

I apologize Ron for trying to make a positive contribution to our regional forum, while at the same time clearing up some common misconceptions about brake design.

I will refrain from providing any more technical information, and limit myself to posting the same space wasting garbage that you seem to have made an art form.

The H6 brake upgrade has teh good
The H6 brake upgrade had teh sux0rs
The H6 brake upgrade will feel funny, but it's OK, your car isn't falling apart

You gotta dumb it down for a brother!

They're all installed. i got the car to start and running well enough to move it in and out of the driveway, however it's going to take quite a bit of tuning before it will really be out and about.

irotors.com has decent prices for no-name rotors. I've had good luck with them in the past, but it doesn't appear their webpage has been updated. I'd call 'em....maybe tomorrow I'll track down the pricing and stock number.

I think I paid something like $110 for front slotted/crossdrilled coated w/ cadmium for my Miata. It looks like the price is about $155 zinc coated for the Legacy...could be wrong.

Yeah, it'd be good to know if they for sure have the 290x10's.

You can totally add the Legacy GT rear calipers and rotors to this as well...

Still H6 sized, but now vented =D

Not really H6 sized... the vented ones are wider, 290x18 vs 290x10... you need the Legacy GT calipers, instead of just getting a caliper relocation bracket.

I forget if Tim said it was harder to find pads for these, or if they just take standard rear pads.

That's why I said rotors AND calipers....

but the stock pads fit...it's just a wider caliper.
