could probably weld on 2 wider pieces of metal on there for a couple of bucks if you got to a local garage. better than the 2 bills for the GOOD one

anyhoo, i wonder if these would fit under the front OEM AP2V2 wheel with a small spacer or so? hmmm ...

i saw another member using a wilwood 13" kit with a 3mm spacer and oem wheels. but the essex kit seems to have a bit sharper point on the tip for the s2k ...

99SH, you have tracked the kit the longest, how are they holding up now?
Brakes are running strong and long. The pad life is amazing, I really like the thicker pads these calipers have to offer. My latest combination is DSUNO front and DS3000 rear and feel the car is very well balanced. The initial bite is very smooth and stays consistent throughout the day.

For the guy above wanting to run on 17x9+49 wheels, I recommend getting spacers. You have a longs way to go before you contact the fender. This kit is much deserved! I'm running +15mm spacers on my front track wheels to make it work.

The heat-spotting issue the original poster noted may be due to uneven pad deposits when switching between street & track pads. What I do is run Hawk blue pads to clean up the rotor. It only takes a couple miles and a few mild stops to clean up the rotor surface to a nice raw aluminum shine. The Hawk blues are a very abrasive pad when cold and scuff up the rotors very effectively. I do this prior to all my trackdays and always lay down a nice clean pad layer when running the track pads.

My next task is improving the time it takes to swap pads. I recently bought the Girodisc brake pad spreader which makes the job much easier. I need to get this down to nascar pit speeds
Considering it. Are you running extended studs? That's about the only way in hell I'll ever run spacers.
