    Default Wilwood 4 Piston Brake kit

    Has anyone seen this?
    http://www.edgeautosport.com/wilwood...-mazdaspeed-3/

    didn't know wilwood offered brake kits for our speeds… front and rear!

    looking about 1400 shipped, not bad for a full kit

    speed 3 stock calipers are good enough and provide adequate stopping power.

    first do this:



    and this:




    and then you will realize the stock brakes are excellent, the only problem ive had is that on the track, you will start melting all the rubber parts.


    stock pads are excellent, i ran with hp+ which had a weird pedal feel
    Oh damn, that sucks. Oh well, I stopped reading the Speed section because according to certain people only speed owners are allowed to even look at that section.

    Echoing above...for street use the brakes on these cars are pretty damn good. With just a simple pad upgrade you can gain a bit more fade resistance which pretty well covers what's needed.

    I've wished I could graft the Alcon GTR kit onto my car. Overkill and a half, but so purdy.
