Rotora NSX Big Brake Upgrade

Ricky Chu
Jun 26, 2007

We first showed you the Rotora big brake kit that we planned to use on the NSX back in our March '07 issue. Not that we were trying to lag, but the car underwent some major body upgrades at PJ Bonifacio's body shop with a Down Force kit. To make up for it, we've used an after picture of the car as a little teaser before we give you a full update on the body mods.

As for the big brake upgrade, they are a must-have, whether it's to dodge insane drivers on the L.A. streets, or if yours truly ever makes it out to the track. What many people don't realize is that big brakes are for more than just looks and clamping pressure. The rotor design helps cool down the braking system so they don't fade when you need them the most. If you've ever raced on a track with stock brakes for a couple laps, you'll know what we're talking about. The Rotora four-piston kit that we've used here addresses all of the necessary concerns when it comes to hardcore braking. Now, all we have to do is learn how to drive.

The price is affordable for a big brake kit too.
