Brakes upgrade or standard?

Post by Boggy2112 » Wed Jul 27, 2016 11:15 am

Hi there, I need new rotors for my 1983 model. Has anyone ever fitted aftermarket discs and calipers? (Brembo, woodward) links to what makes would be nice! Or should I play it safe with new standard parts? Thanks again for your help Dave!

Unless you are going for top performance track requirement, then stick with stock.
If you have everything working as it should the stock brakes are perfectly capable.

13B Turbo streetport with the opportunity to take it on the track :?: :o
I am asking me why Mazda was making 3 brake upgrades from S2 1983 for the Rx7 turbo II to get it streetable.
It cannot be only for compensate the more weight.
