DIY: Hatchback Big Brake Upgrade

RE: DIY: Hatchback Big Brake Upgrade
Update:

Pads are 95% bedded, waiting nalang sa driver side brakes to fully bed pero brakes are stronger as expected.

I am still avoiding full forced braking para maiwasan yung hindi pantay na rotor wear, pero I did a few short hard brakes already, never nagttrigger ang ABS di tulad ng ineexpect ko dahil lumakas braking force, which means nailalapat lahat ng braking power sa kalsada.

Another observation, siguro dahil sa Electronic Brake Distribution, pero yung brakes sa likod mas nararamdaman ko ngayon compared noon.

RE: DIY: Hatchback Big Brake Upgrade
nicely done sir! i am planning on upgrading my hatch front brake too, i'm hesitant baka negligble lang ung performance difference.

kumusta naman ung performance gain in terms of braking and acceleration loss due to larger from rotor?

planned setup is g4 caliper bracket, hi-q brake rotors and hagen ceramic brake pad.

RE: DIY: Hatchback Big Brake Upgrade
Let me put it this way.

Imagine mo yung brake force mo sa stock kapag walang laman at full load.

Napansin mo that you have to step on the brakes harder than usual kasi the brakes just kept on going kahit sagad apak mo na dahil sa bigat?

In my experience, after upsizing the rotors still using the same pads, regardless if I'm alone or even full load,

I only need to apply the same amount of force on the pedal to stop as if when I'm driving alone! hahaha!

PS: I am running the same brembo lowmet pads before and after the upgrade. Brembo's bite aggressively, but with the small rotors, it can only hold so much heat, the scariest experience was the brakes fading on me while I was doing a 100 to zero brake test.

PPS: I have attached a pic of me driving my hatch with 250kg worth of cargo, still very confident with the brakes kahit partida pababa ako ng tagaytay.[Image: 1c96f0087fd770b594089de8a51b9f82.jpg]
