Re: Stock brakes performance

Appreciate your input guys. The conclusion about stock WK brakes is then quite obvious.
Too much weight and power for them to handle.

Will be looking into switching them for something better I think.

Re: Stock brakes performance

IMO...the stock WK brakes are pretty darn good....but not at 130 mph....LOL. I upgraded to the Brembos for mostly the look to be honest....LOL

Re: Stock brakes performance

You guys that think the brakes are fine need to quit pussing out and do some hard braking at 130 mph.
