Default Update on S60R brakes *holy ****!*

Well put a new master cylinder on and pulled the rear reduction valves off.

All I can say is... you'll need 5pt belts now The car stops so unbelievably hard its painful. 120-0 stops time after time no problem, with the OEM pads.

Let me put it this way, theres a strip of road by my shop where I ussualy can go from 5-120 and then JAM on the brakes to get it slowed in time. First time, I stopped COMPLETELY, probably a 100' short.

Second time, still about 50' short

third time I about shate myself from diving into it so deep and I STILL coulda waited longer.


Its insane.

Gotta box those a-arms now

any more details on the install, i would love to hear some details, this sounds like it is a worthy upgrade...did you need to modify anything significantly to make them fit right?

YES! A self shate-worthy conversion if I ever did see one

Let me know if you happen to locate any aftermarket pads for that "R" caliper. I have the EBC Greens on mine, but it would be nice to have a couple other options beside stock pads, like maybe some Mintex or PBR.

SWEET!!!! As soon as I find that 75, it's on.

Hey Doug or Dave,

could one of you post a picture looking in straight at the brakes through the wheels... do they fill them completely?

on your peggies Nick ;)

Dave, if it is indeed the same caliper (well will atleast accept the same pads) there are tons of choices. SCC magazine had a big article about EVO/STI brake setups (the OEM discs look identical inside as well too) ... I believe they had absolutely rave reviews on Feredo's (sp?)

I'll dig it up

No Im really surprized, its like the earth just stops rotating under the car. Course, I have 235's front/rear.

Aaron, I did take plenty. Its really straight forward, you could probably knock it out in about 4 hours.

I got crazy and involved, but I always do

well that brings up an interesting question.....how much space do you have between the caliper and spoke of the rim? granted you have this on a 242.....but its starting to look like polaris rims or any deep dish rims for that matter wouldn't clear the calipers if i ever get around to putting on R brakes.

Exact dimensions are difficult, but essentially I think you need about 1 inch clearance between the original brakes and wheels in order to clear these brakes since the R brakes will be more outboard (unless of course you go with custom hats and redesign the brackets). Polaris are very tight to the original brakes, so they will not work without adding spacers. Most shallow dish front drive type wheels will work, such as those Doug put on (with spacers of course). So it means your wheel choices will be limited with this setup.

the calipers do NOT stick out past the hub + 25mm spacers. Your milage may vary.

I measured them roughly (forgot the exact measurements) but it looks like Titans would clear,they have a pretty flat inside detail to the rim.

You guys haven't been bending control arms?
With big brakes I bent control arms such that the tires rubbed the inner fender the first time I applied them hard.
DO box your control arms. One flat plate across the bottom is enough.
Good for you Doug!!

I may be getting the "do a search" reply here, but is this only workable on the 200s? Any idea of 700 application? Or am I gonna have to get 200 series spindles?
