308 Brembo INSTALLED :)
First, many thanks to Verell with his infinite wisdom, guidance, and help. We installed the new Brembo calipers with slotted rotors plus changed the rear pads to better suit the fronts. Brake fluid is Motul 600. Also thanks to Eric Dahl (fchat member and original designer of the Brembo system) who gave me guidance and assistance to insure a good brake balance. Verell and Eric are GREAT guys who deserve a HUGE THANKS as after driving over an hour i can feel where my hard earned sheckles went to.
Impressions: The pedal is a bit 'longer' before grip.
When cold it is good and smooth. Once the pad temps warm up the grip gets more aggressive and i need to be careful not to use TOO much pressure too fast or the fronts can get near lockup/lockup. Tires are Mich Pilot Sport PS2 mounted on Kinesis K27 rims (17x8 front and 17x9 rear).
After the usual brake cycling to bed in the pads as all four corners were new (60 to 5), went for a cooling off period then some 80 to 15 cycles.
As for losing some unsprung weight up front, the jury is not out though it does feel more nimble. DID NOT do any spirited driving as wanted to bed in the brakes and be sure of things.
The pics below show a few highlights. As for the digital readout, that is the G forces. The scale shows positive and negative G forces. Notice the braking G forces are around 1.15 and i was not doing any aggressive acceleration so it was around 0.5G.
Enjoy the pics and MANY THANKS again to Verell and Eric!!!
