  2. Stop Tech Sport Drilled/Slotted Rotors Fitment Question (2012 Civic Lx Sedan)

    Suspension & Brakes
    I was just wondering if the Stop Tech Sport Drilled/Slotted rotors will fit inside the stock wheels with stock Calipers and pads (or if aftermarket pads will fit on the stock calipers).

  5. What Brake pad/rotor combo are you running?

    Suspension & Brakes
    Hey everyone, most threads about brake pads/rotor preferences are outdated, so I figured I'd create a new thread to see more recent brake preferences. So I'm currently in the market for new brake rotors and pads, figured I'd replace all 4 to something OEM quality or better (I'm at 72k kms...
  6. Rusting on new rotors?

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    About three weeks ago I replaced the rear rotors and pads on my 2013 Si. The pads on the one side were unevenly worn because I believe the rotor was warped. The other side had even wear and seemed fine. Long story short, I replaced the stock rotors with Stoptech slotted rotors and stoptech...

    Hi everyone, I'm ready to start upgrading the appearance of my Si, and I want to buy red aftermarket calipers (or find a way to paint my oem one's professionally). My question is, how can I get that professional red paint look if I were to get them painted? I tried asking around to see if...
  9. 2012 LX/GX rear drum brake to EX disc brake conversion

    DIY Section
    I've seen people asking about upgrading to rear disc brakes on this forum for a while now but it seems like no one's tried it. I have a 2012 Civic CNG, which is most similar in trims to the LX. While the front brakes are slightly different, the rears are the same. We can leave the discussion...

  13. Anyone else hate the stock brakes on your si?

    Suspension & Brakes
    The stock brakes are just awful. The day i bought my car i drove at normal speeds down a steep hill and my car was already shaking. I had a focus a few years back and from brand new to 30k miles no matter what i did, the breaks were perfect. Now at 17k my car needs new brakes, anyway, upgrades...

    So I was on the interstate today and some minivan cuts me off in the fast line and decided to go really slow! From this experience I think I need new brakes. These work ok around town but once speed is involved they are not that great. If I were to change out my pads and rotors would that...
