    Btw can i pair 262mm rotors with spoon calipers? I read everywhere and was informed everywhere that 282mm is the size to go for

    i dont think so. smallest rotor size should be 282mm. space needed for caliper to clear the hat of the rotor and caliper could be mounted onto the knuckle.

    custom. 300mm. with adapters.

    I was told that 262mm can also fit work... Should i just go on with 262mm? or better get 282mm

    the twinblocks were made for 282mm rotors...262 probably alot of custom shit going on.

    theres a wilwwood meant to be PnP with 262mm though.

    get the 282mm.. will have more surface area for bite and cooling.

    May not be good for all out SIC use, since these are performance pads for daily use. Maybe bro. Izso can comment more as he tried them in his hero before in SIC.

    After few months searching, finally got my rotor, was lucky enough to find PMU 2 piece, was quite steep, the slotted is not that deep but didn't feel like waiting, God knows how much longer I'd have to wait if pass on this one, I had people giving me recommendations on buying an EK9 disc which was 5x114PCD and custom drill to 4x114PCD, but i was leaning more towards PNP. I least expect to find this at a workshop tuning my hondata lol.
    I guess I'm done on this thread. Thanks for the kind advice these past few weeks/months.

    Next on my to do list
    1. replacing internal parts of my engine, likely valve seal, spring retainers or parts that requires replacement
    or
    2. Fixing all the small ciku problem such as honk, bonnet clip etc
    or
    3. Installing a rear strut bar or X bar where it latches on the adjustable pillowball
    (in no order, will be based on budget)

    So how does the braking feel now, any significant improvement compared to your previous brake setup?
