Brake Lines / Pad - Rotors

Does anyone know if there are going to be any stainless steel brake lines available anytime soon? Or front brake pads with an agressive compound? I've searched and only seen rear pads and front/rear rotors. No luck finding any brake lines.

If your looking into upgrading your front brakes look into upgrading to some Rotoras. Rotora has a big brake kit for our V6 Accord Coupes with I believe 12 or 13in slotted front rotors that come with aggressive street brake pads, two or four piston (not too sure) brake calipers and stainless steel brake lines. Cost of the kit... a wallet busting +$1600 I believe. Rotora does have rear rotors to match the fronts. Checkout www.rotora.com for more info.

Oh... you have the 4DR Sedan... uh your SOL. unless the Coupe and Sedan share the same brake components. The 6spd MT Accord Coupe has bigger rotors than the auto V6 Coupe/Sedan FYI.

Thats pretty cheap for a full brake replacement.

The Spoon calipers alone cost more than that entire setup.

Still pricey... your baller status if you can afford Spoon Calipers at what... $2300? At Hot Import Nights in Seattle there was a 03' Accord Coupe V6 with Spoon Calipers and tasty bronze Advan Model 5s in 19s. I failed to take pics of the Spoon Calipers... I'm ashamed of myself.

Man... I would kill for some Spoon calipers. Very nice sig. I'm a big fan of big brake kits... mainly for the bling-bling factor tho. I'll be happy with AEM carbon-black slotted big brake kit but those fun-boys have yet to release it for the 7th Gen. Accord V6 Coupe because according to them they want to get rid of the current stock before releasing the carbon black rotors. AEM is notorious for sh*t like that.

Yeah a Pacific NW meet would be nice! We could even invite the guys up north. I'm from the Tacoma aroma area and I wouldn't mind socializing with some Seattle people if you guys aren't embarassed to be seen with a Tacoman..

Ahhh... here it is. 03' Accord V6 Coupe (Taffeta White) with bronze 19in Advan Model 5s, OEM kit, Spoon calipers, and probably the first in the PNW to have the Greddy Evo dual exhaust system. It's a 5spd Automatic (who cares) sponsored by Fast Lanes in Tacoma.

Thanks for the pic Drew!

Anyways they look a bit small on the Accord. Is that car local?

PS. I think the Kruzuers is a much better choice.

PSS. Would you happen to have a link to his page? I don't seem to be able to find his car on cardomain. Thanks!

For those who don't know what we're talking about:





This brake upgrade can fit almost any Honda.

Oops sorry for going way off topic.

Yes and no, you can buy the entire kit which comes with Spoon 4 piston monoblock calipers, Spoon AP1 bracket, Spoon SS lines, Spoon drilled (cast) rotors, and Spoon Pads. Probably run you 3-4K USD since it also requires a bit of custom fitting.

The car is local (Tacoma) and sponsored by Fast Lanes on South Tacoma Way. The car had stock size rotors with the Spoon calipers. I used cardomain.com to host that one pic

Brex - It's just the calipers mated to some factory size rotors... most likely Brembo blank rotors. Have you looked into Rotora (www.rotora.com)? Cost is less than $2000 (about $1600) for everything (front kit only). Unless your pushing massive power thru the wheels the 6 piston caliper would kinda be over-kill on the Accord. A 4 piston caliper is more than enough and currently Rotora is the only company that has a big brake kit for our 7th gen. Accords.

AEM does have the big brake kit but the caliper, stain-less steel brake lines, and pads don't come with the kit.

mQike has the Rotora BBK installed on his 03' Accord Coupe. He has the inline-4 but you may want to ask him his opinions on the kit.

Yeah.. so far I know Mike had said the installation was very hassle.. and need more parts than usual to get it working... perhaps it was just his old wheel that was causing the problem..

hmm...

Yeah wheel offset does play a big part in having a big brake kit. He may of had a good wheel offset but sometimes the wheels spokes or mesh design sometimes doesn't clear the calipers.

mQike had RH Evolution C5 in 19s with a polished lip and a lot of wheels with lips will have caliper clearance problems. I believe his car was a testor for Rotora so that kinda answers a lot of questions when your a testor for a prototype aftermarket modification.

Overall, the kit looks very nice and if I had that kind of cash I would have gotten the kit myself.

The Brembo Evolution line does have a kit for the 98+ AV6/TL/CL. That might bolt up with our cars.
Its expensieve but it is a complete kit. Check it out on either Brembo's site or Comptech's site.



Also, what is special about Spoon Calipers is that they are designed with Honda specs in mind thus they can work with any pad that works with the original car (Monoblock= Accord V6, RSX, S2000) Maybe thats something you'd should consider when shopping for BBK

I heard Brembo usually take few months before it is delivered to you.. unless they have already have stock which I consider not possible for accord..

How much is this spoon caliper gonna run.. and how is it suppose to be better than oem when it is not a big brake kit?

sorry didn't see the earlier post about the tirerack but you guys should check it out anyway.
We use them all the time at my work and when something needs to be ordered it doesn't take as long as you think it would.

Brex, I am strongly considering the Rotora BBK for my sedan. Would you mind sharing some of the bad stories you heard? I appreciate the time.
