    Upgraded problems.

    Well I did a TT brake upgrade, and well, it did an alright job, but definitely doesnt feel like an extra 4 pistons combined. I have regrounds with oem replacement pads but it just doesnt feel good. complete with RBF600 brake fluid. But I also have just upgraded from 225/50/16 tires with 16" rims to 245/45/17 5zigen's. and now the car handles even worse. (i even had snow tires on the back before). I may have the pressure up too high, but rubbing them with my finger it feels slippery-er (?) than my snow tires i had on the back before. I cant drive it nearly as fast. Anyone have any ideas?

    To solve the brake problem I will be getting j-hook front rotors and new pads all around. And i know that ultimately the traction of the tire ultimately determines the brake power of the car, so is this compounded on each other?

    Stock pads do not work very well, though on your car should provide plenty of stopping power. What tires are on your new wheels and how is the weather where you are? High performance summer tires in sold weather are not a very good combo, especially since you mentioned they could be over inflated.

    After running the car fairly hard today, I seem to have regained some sticky from the tires. But that still doesnt solve my brake problem. I guess well see after I orer some brake parts.
