Thumbs up How about this -- 6 Pot Front Brake Kit

I just picked up a new magazine at my local Tower Records called "Japanese Cars Banzai" (it's decent, but nothing real special) and ran across an ad that caught my eye. Look at the top right of it -

<IMG SRC="http://8complex.mwic.org/6pots.jpg" border=0>

6 Pot Brake Kits - 319mm Discs (12.56")

Figured everyone would like the heads up on that one. Looks to be about $1600, but not sure about the "from" part in the price. You think they'd have a set price there...

Anyway, I'm not sure what country or anything this place is in, but if someone wants to check on these things, feel free to give them a ring and share the info with the rest of us.

8,

Tarox...are classed as a cheaper/less quality kit compared to Brembo or AP or Alcon...

They actually produced a 10 pot kit!!

A marketing gimmick if you ask me.. lol

Brakes are an interesting thing..it all comes down to rotor and pad choice..

you guys need to go pick up the current issue of "grassroots motorsports". there is a great article about brakes. when it all comes down to it, the article said that if you want to really improve braking.. buy sticky tires. all the other components only tweak how your breaking is. big rotors are silly if your not having a fade problem (that is if you race). cross drilled rotors are basically only cosmetic. 6+ pot brakes really only increase your unsprung weight.. and different types of break pads really wont do too much difference in braking, etc etc. go read the article its VERY informative.

I saw those Tarox brakes in person when I was in England. There are so many ads for Tarox brakes but didn't really see any good reviews for them.

I know you can never had too much brake, but there had to be a point where the brake bias is wonked and the tires cannot handle the new stopping force.

Damon- One of these days I'll subscribe to GRMotorpsorts. It seems they've already done all the research to my pending questions.

That magazine has alot of Imprezas in it, and alot of different aftermarket companies for them. Damn lucky English people. 8Complex-did you see how badly the kit on the Prelude on the cover fits, that blinker looks great too. I kind of like those Kosei Snipers, anyone know if they are decent wheels?
