wonder how much it'll cost vs. the 100-0 time on a 3000lb RS.

I'm going to contact Alcon UK just for shits and giggles and see what the price is. Probably over 10 grand, I bet.

I sent an email to SWRT and asked what their stopping time is from 160 kM/hr to Zero. I wonder if they will respond, maybe they will think I'm a spy for Burns or McRae.

Bigger brakes won't necesarrily mear shorter stopping distances. I'll bet you can lock up the wheels on your car with the stock brakes, and that's about as good as you can get, even with bigger brakes. You need sticker tires to make a big difference, especially if you put on big brakes. Once your tires have reached thier maximum grip, it doesn't matter how big your calipers are.

Point taken, Miles.

I didn't say MY RS, but you are right.

I wonder what the stopping distance would be with the best tires in the best environment with the most posible traction.

Anyway, I don't think I would buy them if I could.

you are right, i wasn't thinking when i posted. :lol: but i betcha those brakes won't fade for shit. probably can do 100-0 like 100 times before they start giving signs of fade.
