Echoing your statement, I've been daily driving the CTR with the R5 Pads as well. Other than the low speed squeal when nearing a stop and more dust being metallic pads, the R5 do really well.
The pads perform well from cold, and get better with heat in them. Modulation when cold is also...
+1 @86salmon, the weight transfers to the front, and since they're not driven wheels the braking power at the rear should be kept to a point where the rear stays stable under braking and rear brakes don't lock up/trigger abs.
For a street car, even if equipped with a big turbo you can upgrade...
Very aggressive spec, you'll likely have to stretch a 225 to not have rub. Stance really isn't our forte as we focus more on street and track setups, but hopefully someone can chime in and give better guidance
Running Paragon Front Rotors + R5 Pads on our CTR. Really consistent braking on at Toronto Motorsports Park, a track known to be heavy on brakes. We're still on stock fluid, stock lines, stock rear rotors, and pads. Pedal was easy to modulate, and didn't get spongy - a little soft when doing the...
Thank You Bob! And not only that, we've tested everything on our builds on street and track so we know how everything fits and functions :)
Once it breaks in, it's one of the best RMM's for the car. Especially with the ACT Street Clutch Kit I tested every RMM available, and Whiteline's got the vote from everyone who drove the car as being the best choice :)
To be honest, the Whiteline 22mm RSB isn't that hairy at all if you understand brake balance, and have your line right :)
I've experienced oversteer in both my Si and CTR, in both it was a combination of cold rear tires plus quick weight transfer. Neither time was scary, you can counter steer...
Paragon 2-piece Slotted Front Rotors w/Hard Anodized Hats, Paragon R5 Pads, and Titanium Pad Shims installed, thanks @Thusee! Our 2020 Rotors have less than 5k kms of street use on them with StopTech Sport Pads, so it's not a matter of replacing worn brakes, just showcasing our offerings :)...
Some quick shots I took earlier. The Left needs to be raised the slightest via the adjustment screw.
Don't mind the Yellow output, that's just the headlight tint we have on currently.
The first picture I shared with the IC is definitely deceiving, I must've been using a wide angle mode that made it seem so thick.
It's a large IC no doubt, and on the street yet I can't say I've felt any drawbacks to it.
Hey, I can confirm that bump stops don't need to be trimmed, but in regards to the print I'm not on the same page with the Whiteline rep because Yes, their springs can have the text upside down. I have the same springs on my Blue Si with the text upside down.
When removing the factory springs...
Complete @RV6 suspension package awaiting install, along with Spoon Rigid Collars (not pictured). This may seem overkill, but we've already tested the full Whiteline catalog on our daily driver Si builds on street and track for over a year now with great results. The goal with the CTR was to...
Ahaha well I do have to get another Truck/SUV/Van for transporting all the goods once Blue is gone.
CTR was taking on that duty the past couple months, and was pretty good for hauling stuff around too if I may add but it's going to be parked up for winter.
Hey Joe, feel free to PM me with your build goals/ideas, and have a look at our site :)
We have access to a lot more as well, that's just the current list which had been steadily growing and had been tested by us
