Does the TSE kit use dynapros. If not I'd run the v8roadsters kit

I think I am gonna get the dynapro 4 piston I think the 6 piston is overkill on a car that 95% of the time will be street driven.

11.75" brakes are overkill on a car that is street driven.

And nb kit would cost around $4-500 so why not sown a tiny bit more and get brand new lighter better performing ones? Unless the nb upgrade is cheaper than I think it is

Ive done stock size upgrades and have not like the results. The current brake set up is insta fade like first 60-0. Kinda freaky when driving on the highway so they obviously in need of replacement.

I'd suggest doing a track day first and make sure its what you're after before dropping the coin on the BBK -- as others have said, they're not necessary for street driving. But they look badass, and if you need to return your brake system, night as well do it.

Are you on shitty pads? Because my 1.6 brakes worked fine until I really got into tracking.

One nice thing about BBKs are that you can run a quieter, milder pad and still get stronger braking.

OP, if you has the cash, and if you do plan to track... Go for it.

yea its time for replacement I haven't mic'd it but I'm sure its time. The rotors aren't warped but they are trash probably oe and organic based on how they feel. I am gonna track it prob 3 times a year or so.

The nt01 is it worth paying for it top be pre heat cycled?

Why nt01s get street tires. ZII*, rs3, rivals, etc.

Nt01s are track tires. If your only tracking 3 times a year you don't need them. Have you ever driven on the track?
