I finally got my new brakes on that I got from Wood over at Raceconcepts. He was great and I got my PBR MetalMaster pads and zinc plated Dimpled/Slotted Brembo/Bradi Rotors for $324 shipped. I'm still breaking them in right now so I can't really comment on the added performance but for me its so much better right now.

I knew that something had to be seriously wrong with my brakes that I had one previously because when I would press down on the pedal almost nothing would happen and it was way to soft. So we bled the brakes which hepled a lot. Then upon inspecting the rear caliper mounting brackets we found that the pins were rusted in so basically the rear calipers hadn't been working at all :eek:. Anyways, we just ran some solvent through there and cleaned all the dirt and everything out so that it's like new. Installation was pretty straightforward, but it took us like 8 hours cause of the little problems that we ran into and the two front big bolts were really hard to take off.

I'll make another post when I finish braking them in in like another 475 miles :). Then I rip it up.

Here is the front:

Here is the rear rotor:

Looks real good Aaron, I wanna know if there's a difference between cross drilled slotted rotors and the Dimpled slotted ones? Your car is the shiznit Aaron, I just wish I had me a nice coupe.

Hey aaron i think your coupe is one of the sweetest out there man, even though im a g1 man myself i still love the g2, that red coupe is one bad biatch dude. Plus it seems like you do another mod every week, keep it up man.

lookin good

how long does it take for you to break them in?
Supposedly about 300-500 miles is what I've heard. I'll do 500 miles just to play it safe, but I can already tell how much better they are getting. I'm only at like 30 miles right now too.

Dang, Thai, you really do have pretty much the same car as me!!! And plus you just ordered your suspension stuff, and brakes too. What kinda suspension do you have waiting to be installed, and when are you going to paint the skirts? You have one sweet car dude, I didn't realize that yours was a 95 L Auto like my 94 L Auto. BTW, you need to empty out your PM box.
