Default k sports big brake kit

WOW.... I got k sports big brake kit 8 piston in 330mm with DS2500 pads/lines and race fluid for my 2007 WRX. After 8 years dealing with 4 pots with different types on pads and disks it was always lacking in the braking department and highlighted more when I upped the power. best money I have spent on the car

They work well for the money, don't they

Quite a few of us have gone this route with the 356mm kit as the standard brakes aren't up to much - especially if tracking the car.

Yes they do work well ! I got the new design disks and went for the 330mm as I wanted to keep the 17's

The car is now set up for track but unsure about using it for track as I don't want to hurt her !! I have been looking at dedicated cheap track cars such as Type R/182/197

Are they smaller than the STI Brembo setup, wonder if they''l fit under 17" ST2s?

Really rate these brakes. I always had standard brakes and found them to be quite poor. Then I got the k sport and what a difference they made. Enjoy mTe

Not sure if he still supplies them but I had a set of Godspeeds 4Pot Aps under the standard newage 17s on the Bugeye - they had custom bells and brackets to allow them to be mounted with greater setback to clear more wheel styles.

Be wary of buying from Godspeed, had bits not fit for purpose from them as Brent from SMD will confirm.

Which scoob you driving? I'm coming back to thinking about brakes again not that I've finally sorted coilovers and wondering my options.

Previously wanted ksports with 356m discs, but as I've swapped my tyres to semi-slicks on my 18'' alloys I want to keep my standard hawkeye WRX 17'' set on. I know they are pretty **** for clearance, but ksports are quite low-profile.

I think The k sports are not bulky like a a brembo sti caliper so wheel fitment is better.

Yep, you should be fine with the 330mm ksport kit on oem 17" wheels, but you'll need 18"s for the 356mm.

It's worth sticking to 18" to get the bigger ones
