Hey all,

Crossoverauto.com has a front brake upgrade for the MS3...looks sweet and not too much $$$. Look under mazda, MS3, page 3.

not a bad looking kit, but it gives way too little info. It mentions its a 4 piston caliper, but fails to mention the size of the rotor or how it bolts up. it would also increase rotational mass to a greater or lesser degree depending on the size and weight of the rotor. It would add some nice eye candy to the mix, but until someone tests them, I wouldnt want to be the guinea pig. Perhaps you are braver than I. I also would be reluctant to upgrade the rotor size since I am considering running 16's for race tires and obviously wouldnt be able to run larger brakes.
really depends on what you want the final outcome of the car to be.

get out of my head? lately everything you post has been something i'd post O_O

Have you found light 16's that will fit on this puppy yet? Depending on how things go I may be doing more auto-x in this than intially planned.

great minds think alike ;)
dont want to whore up this thread too bad, but there are quite a few 16x8 +48 options out there for autox purposes. Realize running a 16x8 will put you out of stock class and mostly into Street Touring U if you go I/E with a highflow cat. Add too many mods and you will be up against modified cars with gutted interiors and cut fenders.
