    you may find 9 laps of sub 1:20 different, some of the fast IPRA boys are changing pads etc every meet!

    Sub 1:20 very different, VERY DIFFERENT.
    ** Remembers to go check pads and rotors **

    but the same thing remains: JDM AE86 brakes will never be sufficient, even doing 1:30's for 9 laps.

    oh come on, you don't think those 234mm diam rotors with flexi single piston calipers won't do it

    fit some VL turbo brakes bro and a 9" detroit locker with leaf spings

    That's why sprints are good, you only do 3 laps at a time so you don't cook anything but tyres barely get to temp. In the longer IPRA rounds 10-12 laps you see who's tyres are shot or buggered brakes by the end.

    Hey Frak, bit off topic but what was that regularity/enduro thing you did many years ago with 3 drivers per car?

    jaz how do your FC brakes hold up?

    What have you done about the rear? Still JDM or...?

    FC brakes are good, but if you are going to do this conversion try and track down some FD calipers, they are lighter and more rigid(on the series 6 they went to a different casting method, it was a 'squeeze casting' method, which made the caliper stronger but also lighter), series 6 suit a 22mm thick rotor, so useful for most common conversions. ALL FC and series 6 FD calipers have equal size pistons.

    I put FD series 7 on my 86, the reason being, staggered pistons, this will stop the pads from tapering as they wear. Again the series 7 suit a 22mm thick rotor UNLESS it's an Aussie SP RX7 then it had JDM RZ spec rotors and calipers, which was a 312 x 32mm rotor and a caliper with staggered pistons.

    Probably one of the best mods I ever did to my 86 was to upgrade the rotors and calipers (I use a 282 x 22mm rotor) the brakes are VERY powerful!

    Thanks for the info.

    I've got two sets of FC calipers coming in and I'll mess with them first.

    If I feel like playing a bit more I'll take a look at FD ones. I just wasn't 100% sure if they'd fit. I'll be using AJPS brackets so I'm assuming they will.

    Big difference using little civic rotors over FC rotors. For the same reason you cannot get JDM brakes to work, you really need larger rotor dimensions to make it work/last. When I start running out of brakes, then I will look at bigger rotors like Frak.

    I run the full FC rotor and caliper set up. details are in this thread:

    I run a t18 drum diff converted to AE86 disc brakes and calipers. Have recently gone 15/16 master and willwood bias adjuster to try and get the rear working better.
