How about several levels of kits instead of one huge honking size kit that no one can afford, and very few buy?I'm working with a company in Italy to develop a big brake kit for the 500. No it's not Brembo.
I'm trying to get an idea how many would be interested, and at what price point
I did track the car the other week.We're working on 2 solutions. 1 is a 6 piston on an 11.5 inch . 2 is a 10 piston on a 12.5 rotor
The reason you'd want either kit is for performance. If you plan on tracking your car, or driving hard, you need to stop.
These kits will be priced accordingly.
Once I have more info I will post it
It could be overkill. It is also what is being put on the European version of the 500. So it's been proven to workI did track the car the other week.
Stock brakes are dang good.
6 piston kit is ridiculous.
10 piston kit is pointless.
You've gone crazy, its just that simple.
The 4 piston radially mounted brake calipers on my 2800 lbs '98 Boxster were overkill, never faded on the track, and I drove that car **** hard. Why you think a Fiat 500 needs 6 or 10 piston calipers is beyond me.
We have a couple of different disk sizes available, our entry level kit uses a 284mm disk and will work with the standard 15 inch wheels, and is still a lot of brakes for daily use and is the cheapest TAROX upgrade We also have the bigger 319 mm floating rotors ( 2 piece rotors) that will need wheel upgrades.Also having 17s to clear the brakes could get interesting come winter time....
