    Would there be any interest for some serious brakes that fit under 15" and 16" wheels? I'm not talking a "junkyard" setup using Corrado rotors and Accord wagon/ ITR calipers... I'm talking a genuine big brake setup with some serious calipers (or the option to use your OEM calipers), a choice of three pad compounds, SS lines, and racing brake fluid, all in one box, developed under real racing conditions to ensure that the components you get in your system are designed to work in harmony with each other.

    www.fastbrakes.com can set you up with alot of cool stuff, including 4 piston calipers drilled and slotted rotors and a rear disc conversion if you need it.

    lol... B, you've spent upwards of 20K on the Sol, and you still think there's parts out there that just "BOLT on?" About the only thing that is, is your oil filter. ;)

    Sure, I'm interested- but I'm very happy with my FastBrakes setup too. It performs very nicely.

    B- my 4 wheel setup from FastBrakes was only $1042 shipped, and that included stainless lines for the Wilwoods too. If I went with blanks, it would have been $100 cheaper.

    I need better brakes, but I'm more on a tighter budget then under 1000.

    My set up I'm saving up for is Integra brakes all around on my crx, and I'm upgrading to hp+ pads, ss lines, and brembo blank rotors. Biggest I can fit under my 14" wheels. Also I'm upgrading to the integra mastercylinder/booster.

    But if you can come up with a better set up in a box for under 500 that'll actually make me stop faster, not lock up faster, then I would probably look into it.

    if you really are considering making an upgrade kit, make sure that you remember that things like the Teg spindles are not the same as the civic spindles and so on.

    I just upgraded my brakes because my swap melted the front caliper, wore the pads down way to fast and warped my rotors after 6months.

    Integra spindles
    gsr calipers upfront
    axxis brake pads
    ss lines
    gsr brembo cross drilled and slotted upfront
    normal size brembo cross drilled and slotted in rear
    new oem calipers for rear
    new master cylinder
    new brake booster
    new proportioning valve
    new check valve
    dot 4 fluid
    =
    :D
    very nice setup
    expensive but worth it

    I think my brakes sustained permenant damage on rt 17. lol. I should have done a better job cooling them off.

    I would definitley be down for a nice kit.
