    I definitely don't want to step on Lee's livelihood but if you can't find him, I can make your hats and brackets. I just finished putting 313mm Performance Friction rotors under stock 16" basketweaves. Yes with Wilwood SL6 calipers. Stops like crazy.... I'm very, very happy with the results.

    Anyway, calipers and rotors came off ebay from NASCAR teams and then I made the rest in my shop. It came out to $800 for ebay parts, $180 for aluminum, $80 for custom Earl's brake lines and then just time to machine.

    Look up Lee first but if you can't find him.....
    Do you have any pics of this?

    Thanks,
    Mike

      I have been running Lee's Massive setup for a while now and absolutely love it. The setup is a perfect fit, performance is excellent and life of the components is amazing.

      Be patient with Lee. He has to be out on the road, at a track, or just tied up with work. I have been dealing with him for a couple years now and he ALWAYS responds and offers help and advice. The only time I don't immediately hear back from him is if he is traveling or away from a computer. But based on my personal experience with the setup and Lee's service, I could not recommend a better guy to deal with. Trust me, there is nothing like having a setup that has already been engineered and proven, all tied to a very reasonable parts replacement cost (compared to AP for example).

      Email me directly if you have any specific questions and I will do my best to help.

        Hope that made sense,
        YES ! I know that of course ! What I meant was if it would be a custom WORK ? Meaning, do I have to do some cutting and welding or such ?

        BTW, I still couldn't find anywhere that sell willwood kit for our car ! Any links ?
        So far, I could only find Brembo kit from Turner for $1500, which is not too bad !
        Can,

            This is off Lee Vuong's signature on here. If you search his name you find his is the BBK man. I've never worked with him but hope to some day!

              We offer a big brake kit. Let me know if there is any reason it does not fit your needs, I really like feedback on products.

              It's not very 'bling' or 'huge' that stops some people from looking at first, but it doesn't need to be to stop the car , plus its a lot lighter than OEM too.

                stop shouting! i.e. refrain from an exclamation mark at the end of every sentence, we hear you...

                thanks

                Lee's kit is very impressive and would be my first choice. From a technical point of view I would be very interested to see how the fitment under 16" basket weaves is achieved and how it looks (as in what it does to effective offset, scrub radius and steering kick back)

                    That's the same Brembo kit sold in a multitude of places. The only problem with it, is the disc is a very large one piece unit (one piece hat and disc) that is VERY heavy.

                      Ok, but I'm a bit confused. If the rotor for the Brembo kit is a 1-piece, wouldn't that be quite heavy as Ironhead mentioned?

                      What size is the Wilwood kit? I presume it's somewhat small given that it fits a 15" wheel?

                      No rear brake options?

                        Lee has two Wilwood kits. One is a front only "rally" kit that will fit under some 15" wheels like the Kosei K1.

                        The second Wilwood kit is a front and rear "Race" kit, designed for 17" wheels.

                        There should be more details on his site.
