    Hi,
    New to the forum and looking for advice.

    Currently building an Ek4 Rally Car and looking at upgrading the brakes,but want to be able to keep the 4x100 and be able to run 15x7 rims.

    Any ideas? What would be able to volt straight on from another honda? As don't want to go down the line of Brembo, Will wood etc

    Thanks.

    DC2 front calipers with 282 MG ZS 180 discs will bolt strait on no issues at all.

    It's a decent upgrade for a reasonable price. I forgot to mention if that's the route you go down I'd suggest a DC2 or EK9 1" master cylinder
