Looking for Boost!
Back of the envelope number scrawling suggests that upgrading the fronts to the LCR brembos is an 86% increase in breaking effectiveness and changing the rears to the fronts is in fact a 146% increase in breaking effectiveness, and thats ignoring any change in pad area (because i dont know them). Does that sound about right?
A little overkill! Not a great idea then
Right, so leaving the rears as standard would seem more sensible. Considering a standard front to rear brake bias of 60/40 upgrading the front barking effectiveness by 86% would change the front to rear bias from 60/40 to 74/26. Does that sound right?
It's a bit more complex than that, but using S3 front disks on the rears will increase unsprung weight also, which effects handling etc. I'd stick with standard rears with maybe uprated pads if Brembo's was up front, it's more than enough for standard and remapped power.
I only put the ECS stage1 rear on for looks, and they came at a good price at the time!
