ROTORA BBK 2500 mile check-in

I've owned probably two dozen cars in my lifetime (NSX, Ferrari, Corvette, etc.) and I have to say that the BBK kit by Rotora is probably the best mod I've ever had. Not just on this car, on any car. The feel is perfect. The bias (front/rear balance) is perfect. And you can mash on them and mash on them, get out of the car and put your hand right on the front caliper. They're not even breathing hard. No longer do I have to "manage" my brakes. It is the coolest thing. They'll basically put you through the windshield at any speed. And any decent driver knows that brakes will make you faster - a LOT faster. I have SO much more control over the car now. It is WAY more fun to drive now, not to mention much safer.
I have no affiliation with Rotora whatsoever. Just passing along some good information. I'd rather have these brakes than a supercharger or turbocharger.

Very nice to hear about the Rotora kit! What color kit did you end up going with? Also how does the brake system feel when the ABS engages? That's my biggest concern since someone once said they'll get all soft and mushy when ABS kicks on.

Happy to see you are enjoying the Rotora BBK, needless to say I love mine as well but wouldn't mind that Turbo whenever it become available.
Would have gone the Supercharger route but no AC is a major deterrent.

That has not been my experience at all.
I didn't want brakes that screamed "steal me" so I put in a custom order for flat black anodizing. See pictures here: https://acurazine.com/forums/4g-tl-p...u-jmal-974617/
