Whats the best way to boost up braking power on a supra without extensive work or oversized rims.

what pads, rotors, lines, fluid, calipers etc. do you recommend.

i belive technafit (spelling?) makes steel braided lines that are usually very good for consistent braking pressure.

dot 4 or 5 works, IIRC.

brembo rotors, i dont belive that you want drilled, they crack, but im not sure if slotted perform any better, usually they hurt braking performance in tests, but they help the brakes resist fade, which is good for our cars.

i cant recall what pads people use, but i know porterfield kevlars have been mentioned lots in this forum.

thats the set up im going with eventually, and from what ive pieced together off the forums, it should perform well.

Look for the Valvoline Syn Power brake fluid in the bronze colored container. The boiling point is 502 dry and 343 wet, the highest of the common off the shelf brake fluids and its $5 a quart too.

how much does having wider tires affect the braking, i have 215's and i know dogstar has 245's and stops better than me but i need to bleed the lines and mabye do fronts so i don't know if thats an accurate comparison.
