very nice looking car.

Any reason in particular you went with such a large brake set up?

I found the brake kit in Japan, and it was a day after a track day where i demolished the factory brake rotors and pads.

I think you just need to get some hawk blue pads and some solid stoptech cryo treated rotors. The Porsche brake setup sounds mad to be honest........and what wheels will you run? If you go big they are going to get heavy........all food for thought.........
