    buy a Brembo Big brake kit. I'm also suprised you didn't melt them slowing from 130.

    AEM makes an upgrade, as does fastbrakes.com I believe. Brembo makes the best i think.

    Your car should have 240mm front disks, with single pot sliding calibres, try a wrecker and source some 2 pot sliding calibres off the same year accord, they should bolt straight on. You will need the master cylinder as well to make it work, otherwise the pedal will travel, but not work

    Your best bet is a better race fluid with higher boiling temp and some aftermarket pads with better compound

    Conversion to big legend disks are easy, with this you transplant Accord rear disks on to the rear of your car

    Cross drilled and slotted is for tossers you need bigger size and more clamp preassure to stop a car fast :ph34r:
