I don't need bigger brakes either, I push the car but when I need it to it stops just fine.
this is the first car I have ever owned with 4 wheel discs, I have driven cars with no discs
at all and I have always managed to stop just fine. except problem I had with both of my
Ranger trucks where the damn brake rotors started literally falling to pieces, little chunks
of rotor was falling of it, and both at only 10,000 miles, the pads were still good, until that
started happening. but like I said it was only the Rangers that I ever had serious brake

I don't know why one would need bigger brakes[/quote]
I don't want bigger brakes for daily driving. I want bigger brakes for AutoX and road racing.
Bingo... If you intend to "track" your car, you will need bigger brakes to handle the repetetive braking done around the track for 20-30 minutes at a time. The stock brakes will hold up for a while, but ultimately they will succumb to brake fade.
just about to hit 10,000KM (SORRY CANADIAN).. having big fade problems with hard braking, and also had to double pump a couple of times now , because the back brakes hung up... scary shit..
also wearing very uneven.... ford has an optional sloted rotor kit maybe I will try that before the big brake up grade :shock:
IN BIG NEEEEED OF UPGRADED BRAKES..........I think its my car...but when i raced a mini cooper today (turbo) and hit 100 and then slowed down i noticed a huge I MEAN HUGE brake fade.....UGHHH i almost ate it.....but i did beat the mini......i was so happy...i love the 6 speed tranny specialy under 20 mph..really nice take off.....guy asked if i had a turbo....nope..stock V6...but anyways....SEND ME A MESSAGE GUYS when those brakes come out......willing to buy ASAP!!!!!....
Anyone interested in getting the Wilwood 13" setup we have on our Fusion, just let me know. We can do a group buy for the kit for around $1000 out the door. But we need 10 buyers to step up with a 50% deposit before Wilwood will move forward on the kits.
