    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

    Im using the following:

    ATR Front Calipers
    EK9/98 dc2/prelude carriers (they 25mm, ek4 are 23mm)
    282mm mg zs discs
    cl rc6 front pads
    ek9 master and servo

    braking is savage in the car.. would highly recommend ATR calipers (twin pistin) over ek9 single piston calipers

    is it a straight swap with that setup? no grinding or other messing around?

    Straight swap man, just bolt on.. you may need to change your 2 brake lines from master to prop valve but other then that its simple stuff

    is there a reason for using the ek9/dc2 carriers and not the accord? is it down to disc size?
