His best bet is to run OEM calipers, rotors and just upgrade the fluid, the pads and possibly the lines to SS. I am currently researching possible kevlar-reinforced OEM lines that may already exist on the SN95. If this proves to be the case, probably $225 is all that is needed and will stop you 100% as well as any cobra upgrade and save that money for possibly better tires. Reason being, brakes are only as good as the tires one runs and have found most pepes on the forums don't run proper tires for his/her needs.
hey all, thanks for the replies... and jazzer, thanks for the advice.
I didnt have my heart set on brakes that said "cobra" on them persay... just the bigger rotor/more pistons in the caliper/stainless steel lines kinda kit is what I was looking for.
she's soft and spongy on braking and I want more confidence stopping all that pent up power... the brake lines and fluid seems like a good start, but i do have a warped rotor and worn brake pads, so if i was going to change those out too i was looking at available upgrades that wouldnt break the bank...
True.... slotted and/or cross-drilled are pretty usless on a streetable rotor. A rotor to benefit from that venting is gonna be a race-grade one and a whole different ball game. Just go with OEM or direct replacement ones found just about anywhere.
