Brake Queries

Recommended Posts

Found from discussion that wrx red 4pot is direct plug and play for Exiga GT. However, wrx rotor is smaller than stock exiga.

 Can anyone advise if i just change to wrx red calliper and retain existing rotor will improve the braking ?

1. Bigger rotor is always better. Less force needed to stop. Heat dissipation but that applies really if on track.
2. More pots does not mean more stopping power.
If the total piston clamp area is the same, its still the same pressure but applied over 1/2/4/6 pistons. 
100-0 you will not notice any difference, again more pistons is for pad wear and modulation when on track.

go brembo gold or (if you dont need the bling), find yourself a set of SJ Forester XT front caliper and rotor set

those are about the biggest stock brakes you can find (316mm), and they can be had for cheap.
