It uses the Legacy calipers... you wouldn't use the 4 pots with it. The legacy calipers actually have bigger pistons.

Yes.
No.
No.

The Legacy calipers have more to them than the 4-pot brakes and thus better fade resistance. On a fundamental level, all brakes do is turn forward energy into heat. The more heat absorption capacity you have the better brake fade resistance you have. (Of course there is more to that, but on a very simple level that's really about it.)

The pictures were posted at the beginning of this thread. The brakes were on my other car and they were awesome. Pedal feel was improved and braking was notably improved. All you need are 17" wheels (pretty much anything will work unlike some other big-brake kits) and this is all Subaru stuff so if you are after something that has OEM build-quality (i.e. longevity) in mind then this is it.

If you have been to a Subaru Challenge this year, you also have had the ability to beat on a Legacy GT on their "ride and drive" course. The cars were pounded on all day and by the time I got to it at about 3 in the afternoon, a slight stab of the brake pedal really suprised me in that the car was really responsive in how it was dealing with braking; there was no fade and the brakes felt about the same as they did on my WRX, despite the extremely overheated stock tires. They took a temperature reading and the stock tires were at something like 180 degrees about 2 people after I got out of the car. But the brakes were fine.

I'm glad you guys have been keeping up with this thread. I sort of dropped off once I left the dealership. Guys this setup rocks! I did the install on bigglys car, so if there are any other tech questions, or ones I missed, shoot again and I'll try to answer.

And yes, Folgers still has some of these in stock - so order up!

Is it becuase you plan to pick them up cheaper elsewhere? You won't, I promise.

Bump for Folgers, and I hear they might even be looking at a bit more of a discount on these kits!

Yes, and I want to pick them up separately. I don't think I want an OEM rotor, for example.

As for the cheaper part, it doesn't hurt to shop around.

Sorry but you'll have to dig those up elsewhere. Believe me the pricing is VERY competitive and WAY under list. After Steven and Mike took the time to test the fitment, etc the least you could do is pick them up from us to help support our time and effort.

Thought we had pictures up?

Sorry guys that was me posting under my girlfriends name since she hijacked my computer over the holiday and I didn't reallize she had signed in.

I'll get a price without the rotors for you today.

Hope everyone had a happy turkey day!

There are pictures. I guess the link in the first post isn't really obvious enough. Here they are: http://www.subaruworld.net/legbrk/stop.html

As for prices without rotors, I will check with one of the guys down at folgers and have them get you a price sans rotors. Currently I don't know if there are any other rotors out there for this setup. As for pads, they can get you carbotech rears, and the fronts may even be available in bobcats now. When I was there I was working on that.

Thanks.
As for rotors, maybe there aren't American made ones, but they are out there. The car's been out for quite some time in the rest of the world.

I had no luck with the couple of people we worked with when I was there, but there was talk of making some.

Yeah, sorry. I forgot as well. It doesn't help that I'm not offically working there anymore.

If Tim doesn't get back to you soon enough I'm close enough to bat him over the head and get the price for you.

Default Brake Pad Options for Legacy Setup?

This brake setup option sounds promising for WRX owners who want a better brake set up for track sessions. Just want to double check the facts after reading through this thread:

There are no aftermarket brake pad options currently available for this set up, right?

Folger Subaru indicated that Carbotech may come out with a Bobcat version for this setup. How about the Carbotech panther series for serious tracking?

Actually Carbotech probably has pads for it by now, or either in the very near future. You should give Carbotech a call and see if they have them developed yet. Worst case a few months. This would be a good track setup due to the massive amounts of heat capacity that it gains over the stock WRX setup.

I've done the setup before and I'd do it again given the opportunity.

Soundwave: I don't think they will fit under a 16" wheel at all.
