Have you thought about maybe going to an upsized rotor kit in the rear to try to even out your brake bias?


I am happy with the brake bias being more forward. Its not my much as I am running standard pads. I can go up to ceramic pads on the front to increase the bias more, any further than that will be too much.

Funny you should mention the rears. I was just looking at a Porsche Carrera S in the car park. Its rear calipers would match the front, and I could put slightly larger disks in them. Then I would run ceramic pads on the front. Would just need a bracket to run fit them, and possibly a larger brake cylinder. It would look the mutts nuts too!

I still want a GP bumper with working vents!

Has anyone taken off the front backing plates in an effort to increase cooling to front brakes?

That was a nice job on the Aero bumper. I've had a couple customers put them on GP's and say they fit right up to the bumper. Waiting to get pics from them.

"I need to open those on my GP "

I say: do it, kid - it's easy - here's a link to my pictures : http://flickr.com/photos/pbraun/

Actually, as you'll see, I am a cheap bastid and didn't use Way's most outstanding ducting system, but spent $3.42 for some electrical pvc, used the tools I had, and installed direct vents to the rotors.

Came out pretty nice - will be testing in May at Watkins Glen.
