Brakes are almost all installed. I DO have some issues with this kit. Primarily the fact that it's far from a complete kit. I'll do a write-up or quick video on it, but so far not so happy with the install. I thought the Safety wire would be the worst part of it, but so far it's not.

I'll keep you guy sposted.

Brake setup looking nice can't wait till my brakes are done so I can upgrade lol.
Thanks! that’s going to take a while. Honda put some really long lasting pads on these cars.

Looks like the rotors are not hubcentric? Is the going to be a problem?

Good catch! There’s a hub ring that sits behind them. When the wheel is mounted it keeps everything tight.

I've looked at the Wilwood kit before, and

Looking forward to the video.
Another YT live stream would really be great, too.
Promise to keep it under 90 minutes this time.

I looked at the Spoon, Brembo/TL updgrade, and even the BuddyClub kit. I finally went with this one because i thought it was the more complete, and had the most longevity. I have a bad history with BBK. I used to have a Rotora Kit on an RSX-S only to have issues finding pads later.

I did record the install, and will only say that I am not happy calling it a complete kit, because you still need other parts to complete it. Even the dust covers for bleeders.

Anyway, I can ramble on, but the next YT live will hopefully host Chris from RedShift. We are just waiting for his schedule to open up. I'll announce it well before we do it this time.

Han. All kidding aside - I was hoping this kid would perform better on the track than the 4 piston. Especially the rotors.
Do you also have a 2 piece rotor?

Here’s the DIY on the Wilwood kit.
Started a DYI thread in the DIY section. If anyone want to follow that too.
