When it comes time for your next rotor replacement, check out racingbrake.com's 2-piece OE replacements.

I've always been a fan of their quality & pricing. You'll save about 2-4 lbs a corner and gain progressively curved vanes (better cooling). With some better pads, this should give be a good middle of the road option if the stockers aren't doing it for you but the bbk is overkill.

I have seen racingbrakes products on the rx7club forum since they make front and rear brake kits for the fd3s. I was seriously debating on getting them for my rx7 until I saw this thread. --->http://www.rx7club.com/suspension-wh...rotors-968682/

brakes and tires are the last thing you should go cheap on.

That's a bit scary now, isn't it? I ran them, on my RX-8 with no issues (actually I was quite impressed by them). I wonder how Mr. 5s are holding up.
