We've begun production run #2 with 9 spots left currently. We will be able to ship this next production run by early this coming week. Thanks everyone for your support! All profit from orders that come in are being dedicated to R/D on the S2000 platform directly. We've decided to put all of our resources back into various avenues of development for the S2000 platform, and we have some really cool things that we are working on in the pipeline!

You guys can sign up here by adding your name to the list, or to ensure a spot you can place a pre-order here: http://www.sakebombgarage.com/s2000/brake/

There's a lot of talk about brake bias in this thread. I ran Accord front calipers which have larger piston area so the brake pedal goes a little lower and brake bias shifts forward. My race car was lowered a little over 1 inch. With more brake up front and a lower car how did the car work with the ABS disconnected? With NT01 r-comp tires the rears were first to lock and the car was scary in turning brake zones. The extra grip of the big 255 NT01s caused enough extra weight transfer under braking to make the rears break lose first.

That said the ABS masks all that and brake bias is really not a problem. The rears just go into ABS before the fronts. I wish the S2K had four channel ABS so the rears could act independently--it would definitely help in turning brake zones.

We're not a Carbotech dealer (Endless and Hawk mainly), but I wouldn't imagine much more if anything compared to stock S2000 pads... these are stock caliper pads available everywhere (part of why we chose this caliper).

We've run everything from Endless MX72 to DTC30's all the way down to Hawk HP+. Believe it or not (and we've never been able to do this with any other brakes, but these rears run so cool that it works) we've been able to do track days on HP+ with our RX8 rear kit conversion, and our AP Competition kit (also our cheaper Wilwood kit) all day long, super consistent every braking instance first lap of the day to last lap of the day, 30+ minute sessions. Try that on any other brake setup and let me know how long you last haha. With rotors that actually absorb and shed heat effectively, you can run street pads like the HP+ on track without any issues. Now we wouldn't use HP+ for actual competition use obviously, but HPDE's they're absolutely consistent with these rotors + our 325mm AP up front.

When you ran the HP+ in the rear what were you using up front with each of the front kits?

HP+ and we weren't doing parade laps haha. These rotors shed heat VERY fast, so even on HP+ (which are dirt cheap and work great on the street) we were still totally consistent first lap of the day to the last lap of the day (on both our AP and Wilwood kits).

Try that on other brake setups if you want to get a close look at what brands of tires they use in the tire wall

Are the rotors the same as RX-8? Or are the manufactured by you guys? Thanks.
