    First off I have a 88 CRX Hf and I am upgrading my brake system. I have read that you can use 90VW corrado rotors, 91 ex spindles and itr calipers. Well i purchased all componnents and tried to do a test fit before I installed them on the car and the rotor WILL NOT fit on the spindle. I thought they would work on 4G spindles but not the 5G's. I will be switching to Re-drilled Prelude VTEC rotors, but I guess im wondering why my setup doesnt work when I have read that it does.

    you can fit the lude vtec rotors on there?

    those are huge...

    and i dunno anything about using corrado rotors...
    it seems they should fit since corrado is 4x100
    where is it not fitting?
    did you try it on both the ex spindles and the hf spindles?

    are you sure you have ex spindles?
    and are you sure they are the right rotors?

    link to the write up?

    thats fucking sweet, wish i had an EF. but, ive got a write up for a similar break upgrade for da integra's... i cant wait. what sort of improvement as far as braking did you see?

    wanna do some tests... to compare to stock. say from a 60 stop teh brakes and see how long it takes to stop like car and driver did back when the car was new?

    just a thought.

    one more thing, are the itr calipers 2 or 1 piston?

    THANKS!!!

    yeah its basically the same for da's, but you dont have to change the spindles though. i can say without a doubt the braking is SIGNIFICANTLY improved. I would like to do some test, but i bet it can stop in 60%of the stock distance from 60-0. (my stock setup was 9.1" not too impressive) I used to lock my ish up quite regularly but with the limited test i have performed in the current break in period i have noticed that i have much more control over whats going on. i am running single piston right now, but i am looking at upgrading to the dual piston model. Never hurts to upgrade right?

    its an awesome mod IMO....beats spending 1000 bucks on a big brake setup..
    i went with the calipers bc accord wagon, legend, prelude vtec, itr are all basically the same...plus i got a good deal...lol..i can give you a full list of what cars came with these calipers if you are interested.

    oooooooops... i overlooked it.

    fucking sweet.

    so, i take it the single piston is larger than a single piston on a da's brakes or are they the same size... i so cant wait to do this.
