I think I turned rotors into calipers in my head.

I loved my DTC-60s for the track day. They got hot as **** though, ducting would be a good idea.

Just did a couple 100-30s on the interstate.

I swapped back to HPSs, and reallllllllly miss the initial bite the DTC-60s had. The dust and your wheels aren't friends, and they're loud as ****. So not the best DD pads.

My understanding is the DTCs aren't picky like the carbotechs are.

This is my general shopping method when parts are needed.

<p>So I find rear brackets all day long. But finding a front bracket without a caliper is a pain in the ***. Anybody want new front calipers?</p>

Don't you have a smashed up 1.8 car with 1.8 brakes on it? Why are you not using these again? I feel like I'm missing something critical here.
