I agree with the above statement. All mass produced automobiles have inadequate brakes. It is a well known fact that at a place like BMW, where world class engineers design some of the most advanced and competent and sophisticated engines and cars in the world, that the brake engineering department is staffed by a single high school shop teacher who insists on using a cheap single piston caliper design because that's all he knows. Surprising, really, but thank god we have 500 fly by night companies with budget CNC machines and a trial version of AutoCAD to pick up where BMW's inadequate employee left off! It doesn't matter than all production cars including a base model Kia come with brakes more than capable of locking the wheels in all conditions! All daily drivers including Honda Fits should have at least 15" big brake kits. Stainless steel lines are very important too. Also your rotors should be drilled and slotted, this is very important for braking performance. Painting your calipers yellow or a combination of yellow and pink reduces stopping distances by 25 feet. It is definitely a great investment to spend $3-5000 dollars (usually 75-100% the value of the car these kits are applied) on something which actually in many cases increases stopping distance!! Also, be sure to get the pad kits which don't work in cold weather conditions, especially if you live in the Northeast and drive in the winter! This is a popular trend amongst expert Honda enthusiasts. Also, if you go to the track and realize you've lost your brakes due to fade, the most important thing to do is immediately spend $5K on upgrades to your car rather than driver education, as with the typical 5-10 track hours you are surely more competent than your vehicle. Did I miss anything? That was pretty funny. I had a turbo civic track car years ago and it did outgrow it's brakes. Didn't need to spend 5 grand. Just got calipers off an accord(same as on the NSX) for about $400 and problem solved. I always like to point out the T1, T2 and T3 SCCA races. They have to use stock brakes. If these professional drivers can make stock brakes last an entire race then surely on a street car the stock brakes should be more then adequate. Now I do have 930 turbo brakes on my porsche. Much more brake then the car ever needs. The previous owner put them on the car. 10 grand in wheel bling. I'll leave em though since it does add to the value of the car saying you got 930 turbo brakes. Plus they are one hell of a braking system even 30 year on. Came right off the famed 917 race car.
