Pics of my car after installed Rotora BBK and Tanabe Sustec PRO

Hi!

Here are a couple of pics of my car after I've installed my Rotora BBK and Tanabe Sustec PRO Coilovers.

I've had my Rotora BBK on the car for about 1 month now and the brakes are wonderful. Right after the install it braked really rough, just had to touch the pedal and your front teeth were planted in the steering wheel. But after brakiking them in they are really nice. Also I installed Rotora slotted and drilled rear rotors.
Installation of the kit was pretty easy. Only had problems loosening the bolt connecting the brake line to the hardline, but it came loose after a while...

The Tanabe Sustec Pro coilovers are really nice. The car handles perfect now. I did not install the helper springs and I don't actually see the point in having them. Installation of these were also pretty easy. Only obstacle here was taking apart the original struts for the stock parts needed. The bolt on the top on the fronts really sat tight. But with the right tools they came loose...

Those look really nice. I noticed that these brakes are a lot cheaper than the AEM and TRD BBK kits that come with calipers. What's the Performance difference between Rotora and AEM and TRD?

Are there any Performance numbers as far as upgraded BBK versus stock brakes? Like any 60-0 measurements or anything?

VERY NICE! big brakes set a car off nicely. What size are the rims? 17s?

Whats the ride quality like with the coilovers? give detail of different road surfaces.

Hi!

I think any brand BBK will satisfy your stopping needs smile

The rims are 8x17". Remember to have enough inner clearance for the calipers on your rims. Most tech. info on kits only states that you need 16" or bigger rims. That's NOT the case. The OZ superleggeras have ALOT of room, and they are light.

Only tested the setup on wet and dry asphalt. Running on max stiffnes on the coilovers, and the handling is imo perfect. It's a little bumpy and harsh on the smaller crappy roads here in Norway. But I haven't started playing with the adjustable damping yet. With my BFGoodridge tires the car sticks like glue in the corners. I'm hoping to go to the track and really give the car a beating before winter comes over here.

eek

<3

The helper springs are there to help make the ride less harsh. I don't understand why you didn't put them on, they aren't going to hurt anything and they are included for a reason. wtf
