rx7 fc brakes onto AE86
i have heard people talk of this conversion before, is it possable and what do i need and also what is involved, after spending 2 hours on knockhill today and getting lovely break fade looking to either upgrade with standard ae86 set up or change them alltogether, what are your suggestions for better stopping power

What were you running this time?

Type of front and rear pads?
Type of brake fluid?
When was the brakefluid last changed? Just before event?
Ducts present?

A wheel to steer the front of the car
A pedal to steer the rear

40mins untill fade sounds like pretty damn good performance to me. And that with dubious brake fluid. After you cook the brakes, the brake fluid becomes a lot worse at its job. So ideally you should change it in between sessions (just a quick flush). Brake ducts (cooling vents directing air from the front air dam to the brake callipers) also can have significant effects.

I wouldn't be so fast about discarding the stock brakes, I would think about it if the rx7 kit had:
Larger then stock discs (don't care about the callipers, clamping force of the stockers is more then sufficient. (best you can expect is more even pad wear).
Lower total unsprung weight (forget about that one is you are running heavy ass 17s)
Cheaper and/or better pad-choices.

Sounds like you got alot better then I doSmile

Took me a couple of laps on Zandvoort to get fading. But I'm pretty sure some fresh brake lines and good new brake fluid will do alot of good.. Hope they will come in soonSmile
