Post your brake setups!

Since we all see wheel threads and exterior shots...let's see your brakes!


Was previously running the Brembo GT kit. Yeah...it's big. While I loved it, I had to sell 2 sets of wheels and get some SSRs to fit over them.

Now I am running the Wilwood 11" kit. So far...I love it.

(will have pics soon)

Got pictures of the new setup?

My brake setup is pretty basic. Crossed drilled and slotted rotors from FM, Hawk HPS pads and DOT4 fluid. They've been very good to me but now I'm upgrading to blanks, Axxis Ultimate pads, SS brake lines and Super Blue fluid

Mike is your wilwood brakes the kit that sells for around $700-$800? How do they compare to the big brembos? I am thinking about saving up for the wilwood kit.

The Hawk HPS pads are so close to stock I can't really tell the difference. I am going to burn them up here soon when I get a track day and then switch to the HP+ like I had on my RX7. The HP+ is much better than the HPS.

One day I will actually need real racing brakes, I hope.

corrado rotors up front, sport rotors in rear. ULT brake pads.

Front has 11" Corrado rotors with HP+ pads. HPS pads in the rear. Wilwood prop valve and SS brake lines.

Braking is dope but HP+ are really noisy and brake dust is massive!

Next time I'll probably go with Cobalt pads all around with ATE racing brake fluid.

Next time I'll put more agressive pads in the rear.

whomever convinced everyone in the community you need more front brake over the rear was one big troll. I've contiplated going back to 10" front rotors and keeping the 10.9" rears.

blame spec miata...Or maybe paranoia of locking up the rears first (rightfully so though).

Higher friction rear pads work great in autocross though. You can also just pick up a late 03+ NB brake proportioning valve which have a much more even bias.

I'm considering painting my calipers something. What do you guy's think will look good on a black MSM on black rims? I think Red might stick out too much.

Greeeen, just make it a little dark. I personally would just paint that ---- yellow, but I have been liking yellow a lot recently for some reason...
