I got my 1.8 conversion. All 4 caliper and bracket for like 200$. I'll take EBC Greenstuff and brembo blank (the least expensive rotor I've found).

I think that's all I will be able to fit in term of "BBK" with my future Enkei RPF1

Stock 1.8s

-Started with HP+s, still love them for the street, faded them first track-day I took them to
-Faded the **** out of the same HP+s the first turbo track day I did
-Faded and chunked the **** out of the Porterfield R4 race pads I tried
-Porterfield sent me a set of Raybestos ST-43 pads which I've had on for one whole session, but they dust like a ************ and eat rotors so I'm hopeful

If the Raybestos pads don't cut it, I'll be saving up for a BBK and Carbotech XP12s/10s.

Rafa-I bought my kit from CDOC http://store.cdoc.com/detail.asp?id=...rake+Line+Kits

Sam, offcourse you have doubts, you doubt everything, yes they make a difference, huge difference imo, its all about brake feel and being able to modulate...and if you only have 23K i suggest you go out and drive that thing before it leaves for someone who will drive it.
Also, the block thingy, that is the distribution block to fees the drivers side...it didn't come initially in my kit, so I called CDOC and they sent me another kit, they admitted they messed up and fixed the issue right away. I did have to return the old kit, well most of it.

Scott-i contribute the rear rubber lines to my front locking up becase i am getting more power distributed to the front now since the lines do not swell and in the rear they do...I will know for sure once I change the rear ones too.



Rafa-I assume you are talking about Spain...I must say I am pulling a little towards Croatia, only due to our history and proximity, we are almost countrymen, lol.
I must say, you did have a pretty easy group, Greece, Russia, and Sweeden...so you deserve to have a tough oponent in the Qt's.
Do you get to watch most of the games, I only saw Ger-Cro. I hate my job haha

The Chikara BBK is the only one on the market that will clear the 15'' Enkei RPF1.

Yes, I was referring to Spain. I understand you pulling for Croatia; fwiw, I see them in the finals. (Germany just beat Portugal!).

About my group; now we're fucked . We have to play Italy on the quarters and if we beat them, we'll then have to face the best team in the tournament in my opinion (Holland) and, oh by the way, 3 of their starting players play for my team! (Real Madrid).

About being able to watch all the games; I'm old so I can afford to do it.

BTW, thanks for the link

Sure thing man, I wish I could...

Holland is pretty strong, it should be a good game regardless whether it's Italy or Spain, hate to miss it.
Croatia def. surprised a lot of people, I am just bummed that Serbia can't put a ******* team together with a worthy coach, they have a lot of potential, just need to make some good decisions. I keep checking the results online as frequently as I can during every game, it helps a little, but nothing compared to acutally watching one.

try hawk blue's first. the turbo SM guys run standard 1.8 rotors with blues and ducting with no problems. At $15 per rotor, I don't care how much the pads eat.

Not yet, but coming soon. M-Tuned/ETD is busy with some other stuff first and then they will offer these to the market. Probably looking at Sub $100 for brackets, centering ring and hardware for this kit.

I'll try and get you some pictures of it in the coming week.

Interesting Euro Rafa - Croatia is out, and so is Netherlands. I'm hoping Turkey can take our Germany now! I'm was born and raised in England, but has some Turkish blood in me.

Marc,any chance you could make brackets for the rear brakes using the stock calipers & the 01+ rear sport rotors?

Marc, if you have some Turkish blood you're indeed enjoying this Euro! Well done so far! A little lucky but they've shown they have heart.

Just don't get your hopes up. They not only face Germany now but they have to do that without some of their starters due to yellow cards.

In my case, today is the BIG DAY!. Italy has been our beast for many years (it's been 83 years since the last time we beat them!).

The Netherlands lost to Russia yesterday and I don't care how good Russia plays but I don't see them beating us in the Semis (we already beat them 4-1 and I'm sure we can beat them again).

Is that the biggest 4 x 100 rear rotor you know of? POssible to do, but we must finish the current projects first. Each one costs a ton of money as they are making hundreds of an item to bring it to market at the right cost.

^ the 01+ rear sport rotors are 10.9 in diameter.Bigger does not mean better,it's about a balanced system.It just makes more sense to use the factory big rotors cause they are cheap and easy to find.

Currently,there are only 3 places that offer a BBK for the rear brakes using the 01+sport rotors and they are,Goodwin racing,Chikara Motorsports and FM,but these guys charge a premium for just the caliper relocation brackets.

If you can have these brackets made and sell them for,say $100,it would be the cats ***.

Should be very easy to do... Did you say 10.9" on the rear of the sports? I thought the front was 10.6 is the back bigger?

Once we get the front finished I will get the backs made!

The back rotors are 10.9 and the fronts are 10.6,yes the backs are bigger(I have no idea why,Mazda just did it that way.).

I'm really looking forward to when the backs are made.Keep us updated Marc.

My brakes faded at the track last year, so I went with SS lines, 01 sport brakes, and Axxis Ultimates for this season. Fantastic difference on the street, will update after a track day.
