Why did we make this product??

- Kept getting asked for a larger rear brake by both customers and my vendors. They wanted something to match our 11" Front Kit.
- Assists with F/R basis when installing the corrado kit on the front of a car without an adjustable prop valve.
- Some people would like a larger rotor for looks when running 16"+ wheels.
- If you are doing brakes and already buying new pads and rotors, why not go bigger with this kit?

I know the rear kit really helped balance out the front kit on my 2000SE. I'm also working on a way to mount the larger sport brake pads on a non-sport car. Giving even more braking performance.

Not all cars are track cars. I don't want to use noisy-*** race pads on my DD yet I still want decent performance. I assume that's why they come stock on the mazdaspeed.

Yeah.. I've got one customer who is an Autox guy. He needs the big rear rotor as he needs more rear braking and can't use a more aggressive pad as he does not get the required temps on a short autox course.

Our kit is what he feels is the answer.

Stock brakes are perfectly good for street use. If you are upgrading your brakes for any reason other than track use, it is for looks.

Obviously you haven't pushed your car very hard on the street.

Obviously, you two are using the wrong pad for the type of driving you are doing.

Anyways, I'm done with this thread. Good luck with the sales.

Other cars with brakes just for looks:

2006 lotus elise 11.1/11.1
2009 porsche boxter 12.52/11.77
2009 mx-5 11.4/11.0
2009 honda s2000 11.8/11.1

These manufacturers should change their pads too.

My car with 250+hp is better off with brakes off a:

2009 civic ex 10.3/10.2
2009 corolla 10.8/10.2

What about upgrading from 1.6L brakes to the larger 1.8L setup?

Our Web Price for this kit will be $109 + Shipping. Will include all washers, bolts and brackets needed for the installation.

Hope you like the pics and don't mind the teaser. Car looks great with the 11" Corrado Kit on the Front and the 10.9" Miata Sport Kit on the Rear.
Please let me know which head light kit is on this car. I love it! I MUST HAVE IT! LOL

Thank you.
