Default performance brakes

hi there, every time i ll go to track i am burning my oem rotor brakes. (ebc blue pads )
and after 5 or 6 laps my brakes are dead .( pedal go down )
I've had enough of this,so i decide to make my own performance brake because BBK cost a eye ( am not rockfeler )
therefore i bought 2 new e46 tarox JS disc ( 300X22 ) 300€
and 2 used but in good condition rear porsche 986 calipers with half used pads ( brembo ) 255€
after this i made a size with cardboard,and find steel T-square in 10mm
drawing,machining, and drilling them
hot temp painting and mounting
very happy of this upgrad,finally i have some andurance on my brakes.
i can drive 12 laps without problems for unless 600€ ( 825 USD )
and i can keep my 16 rims
PS: pics are in my gallery

I honestly don't think a BBK was the answer.
Quality track pads, stock vented rotors, good brake fluid and maybe brake cooling is all you need.

With all that mass you are going to have better heat dissipation, sure.
They do look cool though.

Small tracks give little time to cool so I can see that being a problem.
My tracks have fairly long straightaways.
Motul is good. I like ABS.

i have learned to drive without,and the abs block weighs a dead donkey ( not really good for the race )
i also ordered Pagid rs4.4 brake pads for my calipers,because the oem brembo are fine but uses quickly

Hey guys, if your looking for lighter calipers? Have you considered rx7 calipers? The ones for early 90s ones fit over 280x22 mm discs! :P
