Project Kic's spacers that we have at work. They are 8mm and you use a washer on the back of the caliper to make it an effective offset of 7mm

you have to enlarge the hole. the stock Si calipers use a 17mm bolt, the TL-S brembos a 19mm bolt.

you use a 14mm drill bit. i plan on doing a complete DIY once i get everything in and set-up.

A true "race" pad will eat up the rotor if its not within its operating temperature.

What pads have you used before?

Yeahhh, these are all street pads.

Hawk HP+ / Stoptech Street pads would be great for street use and okay for beginning track use. The HP+ will dust and maybe some noise, also it's a bit more aggressive on the rotor.

even the yellowstuff you think? that pad was fantastic on track in my MR2.. 20 minute sessions in summer without a lick of fade!

The last time I drove on the Yellowstuff, they overheated in a few laps.

Well it really depends on how hard you are using the brakes. I know people that go with stock brakes and never get any fade.

i might give them a shot. i know they are pretty nice to rotors, and being that for every 5000 miles i put on the car i might get 100 miles of on track driving, being nice to rotors and a decent pad for the street is a big concern for me.

Maybe in the future, you should invest in a dedicated set of race pads that you can swap out for DD pads. That's what I do

def, the brembos look like they are super easy to change pads out of, a couple of pins, a clip and they slide out of the top right?

Yes, two pins and the bridge. It will take longer to remove the lugnuts and take off the wheel.

Thanks to your very helpful thread I ordered all the parts and they should be here by this weekend for me to install, I never would have guessed you could get rebuilt brembo calipers from advance auto so cheap.

True, but people don't need track pads for their daily driving. I was just giving an option.
