Bumping this. What is the consensus on rotor choice? OP says Spec V Brembo and others say redrilled Maxima. Gathering parts tomorrow and would like a concise answer

I would think that trail braking would be a recipe for inevitable spin out with that much rear braking power.

ITT: People who think a larger disk=more brake force.

What a joke.
Old as shit, I know... But Connor is correct. All else equal, a larger diameter rotor allows for greater leverage, which equates to more braking force. I'm not sure why you chose to disagree there.

As for davin's question... I don't like these rear upgrades on the B14... I hadn't heard of them until recently, but putting a 10" or 11" (or 12"?) rotor on the rear of a B14 just seems like a silly thing to me. Especially if the fronts aren't at least 13" and you're doing serious time attack work with over 500 WHP.

Im collecting parts for a track car build as a matter of fact. There isnt really any rear options for the B14 other than this. I would opt for p10 if i could

@JimmyRustles as the OP I KNOW that the Spec V Brembo discs re-drilled fit perfectly with the Maxima rear calipers and brackets as noted. Any other options would have to be verified by others.

Also, if you are still looking drop me a pm. After Kimme wrecked the B14 those discs were removed in the part out and sat in my garage on a shelf rusting for at least six months. Don't remember what happened to them after that in all honesty. I can try and find them if someone is interested.

I recently upgraded to aluminium 300zx front calipers on my sr20 n15 trackcar using n16/b15 hubs and 300zx disks (turned down 2mm). Much lighter setup than stock.

There is also a way to upgrade B14 rear drums to this same setup, but since I started with discs, the disc upgrade is what I'm covering. I'm not going to cover what came stock on your car check the brake thread for that info.

I will be doing this upgrade along with SS brake lines on my b14 very soon. Have a 4 hour drive to Bryan's shop in SC.

Not too sure as to what the stock weighs but the AD22VF calipers loaded with brackets weigh 10.75lbs approx
