I'm itching to get out there too! I'm pumped to see how the 6 speed is on the track.

Edit: oh yeah, are you coming to the C7 car tour this weekend too?

I think you'll pick up time with it. Lots of shifting 2-3 and 3-2. I think on the two semi-straights i'll be shifting into 3rd early rather than revving out 2nd...but we'll see what works better. Should be a fun day.

Hmm...forgot about the C7. Who's going? I had mentioned to some buds about going biking that day but no plans 100%

Rear Disc Brakes

How can I get a hold of (purchase) the rear disc brakes (and all of its components) you have on your Echo? Is it a conversion kit or from an Asian RS or European TS?
Thanks for any info you can provide...

Scions didn't have them in the US. You have to look in the JDM.

Ohhhhh.

Because both of our rear brakes are from JDM spec cars, not conversions.

Exactly what Bluevitz said, my kit is from Japan from a Vitz RS. It came with everything required (Rotors, pads, calipers, flex hoses, e-brake assembly/cables, wheel bearings, bolts) Shipping is expensive...but I think it was worth it

I found mine through rpmgarage, but it's rare to see it on there. Import monster or another site that deals with JDM parts would be your best bet

I'll probably use my 17's one more year (I think that will be the end of my RA-1's) and either use these as summers and find another winter set of 15's OR just change tires on these rims each season (unlikely)

Are you down here much in the summer? There's not really meets around here anymore, well, echo meets anyways. Track days sometimes have a good turn out though

There are no echo in Ottawa. Unless we did a big meet between montreal and Toronto. Get some Montreal guys out.
