Brakes are on my ďto doĒ list this winter for several reasons. As it turns out the PBR stock calipers on 99-04ís are aluminum and weight is not too bad. Itís the stock rotors in the front that are heavy. Then of course there are the stock rears which donít weigh much because they are so tiny and donít hold for crap. In my learning curve with the C4 this season, the more rpms I can bring up on the footbrake, the better the 60í and therefore the better the ET. Right now canít seem to hold the car much above 2200 without pushing through the beams. So I want to make the brakes hold better, be lighter, and not have much if any residual bind. And yes, the options are pricey.

Coincidence. A convenient and overused word for the mentally lazy.
