I\'ve been on here for years and a lot of Q\'s about bigger/better brakes have passed. From upgrading to 99 spec items over custom built kits by rotary companies as well as put together sets.
Overal, the first 2 are quite expensive, so over the years I have been contemplating alternatives as I am in the possesion of several big brake calipers (AP Racing CP5200, Brembo\'s, etc)
2 issues always appear...
1. Caliper adapter... could be solved if you\'re a metal worker or know someone.
2. What brake disc to use? If using 2-piece items... off the shelve items are rare as few companies ever made RX7 (FD) specific items.
Alternative could be to use standard items of higher end cars... to name a few... Audi R8, (R)S 4 or 6, Jaguar, Porsche and similar. You would just have to adapt the bolt pattern to 5X114..3 (if even that, depending on the car they are coming from)
I could imagine that \'normal\' steel discs would still be quite reasonably priced.
So, what are your thoughts and experiences? What brake disc from what car would you recommend price/quality/resourcability wise?
