Better for braking but adds weight so it’s pointless if bhp don’t improve

Its hard to get use to stock spongy brakes once u use BBK. Overkill on normal cars like mine but braking powess is much better than stock. But the question is, BBK can stop ur car much faster with less distance BUT the car behind u doesnt so need bear that in mind.

Isn't this the reason why you opt for BBK?

BBK is to allow you to stop in time. It doesn't give regards to the cars behind. If they are tailgating you, then it's their prerogative and whatever happens, is their own judgement call.

BBK heavy or not is not my concern when I installed 286mm big-4 pot on my Vios. The concern is I need to stop in time, when I need to. I rather be kissed in the back, than to kiss others.

I don't know about other people's priority when it comes to performance mods. FC is the least of concerns when you do mods.

Depending on your kit size, mini-4, big-4 and the rotor sizing etc.

Big-4 is about 1,600-1,800 at 303mm.

Friend did big-6 and mini-4, $4,300.

Go big, or go home, he says Thomas, lip lai!

True. What im to tryin to say is be aware of other cars. Give ample space when u can.

Bbk if u track or have huge power increased and please if wan,get big good brands not those Taiwan replica.... Probably upgrade to better tires is worth more than ur Taiwan bbk... If hard breaking can activate ur abs means ur brake are good enough need better tires .

If you are using small stock rim, when you change to BBK, you will also need to upsize your rim.
