I went and looked at the site, and then went over to I-Club and looked at the thread there. Basically, I guess I re-invented the Perrin kit, except I used dba 2 piece rotors (OE size, slightly thicker). I used some different fittings and such, but the overall package would be similar to what they offer. I probably should have bought theirs and saved some time.Big Sky WRX said:I was looking at a kit that altasports was selling.
I have never used those. I guess am partial to Hawks. I raced on them for a while, and somewhere along the line, my street cars started getting the HPS compound pads. Having a buddy that carries them helps.It seems like there is a pretty good selection of pads available, but the ones I'm running now I love (Endless CCX).
The OE two pot fronts are incredibly heavy. They feel like the calipers from my 1 ton pickup. Subaru made those to LAST. The Wilwoods and the dba rotors make a reasonably light package, and I'll see how well they work soon. I figured if the STi can make due with 294mm and 4 pots, so can I.Wilwoods would be lighter than the Subaru 4 pot setup, a real plus. They're cheaper also (obvious plus).
