Dang thats costly. Is it because the rims are too big and will need a bigger brake system and suspension to handle it?

No it more because our cars are too heavy for our brake setup but also because you do need to upgrade your suspention and brake when upgraded to bigger wheels.

Oic... so we just need to switch out the front brake system to the RL... the rear isn't needed?

The rears don't work on our cars. The rears have to be custom made I'm having some custom made. Custom setup I'm trying to get will be 4k as I'm going 6 piston front and 4 piston rear with 13 or 14 inch rotors

So far I have less then $200 invested into the mini rl bbk kit. If you have t2 calipers then all you need it to find the 99-04 rl brake brackets from a parts yard or eBay. Then get the RL rotors.

Yea because I had a extra set of t2 calipers but no brackets then a club member grabbed me the rl brackets from pull a part then I ordered cross drilled and slotted rotors so the rotors were the bulk of the price lol.

In the mail anyday now. your right about out brakes being so damn small. Our rear calipers are a joke.
