Bigger brakes?

1566 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Indolent
Hello all! I was wondering if there was any way to get bigger brakes for my car without absolutely crushing my wallet. I found some big brake kits dedicated to the CT200h but they're really pricey and I was wondering if anyone had any good suggestions, or had gotten bigger brakes for their CT themselves? My discs are steel and incredibly tiny, so they overheat very fast when I'm driving the car hard, which really prevents me from putting down good laps at race events (Yes, I track my CT occasionally, along with autocross events too.) because my brakes get very hot very fast. If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations, don't be afraid to tell me please. Cheers :)

Thanks to Jae Borce from the Facebook CT groups, we managed to use..
  • Scion TC (11-15?) TRD Calipers (StopTech ST41)
  • PTR0952092 - TRD Rotor, Left (Stoptech 126.44146SL?)
  • PTR0952093 - TRD Rotor, Right (Stoptech 126.44146SR?)
  • PTR0921111RU - TRD big brake kit replacement pad (Stoptech ST-41 Brake Pads)
  • 950.44029 Stoptech/Centric Stainless Steel Braided Lines (optional, highly recommended)
  • M12-1.75 x 50mm 10.9 grade x4 flange/caliper bolts
  • "Rotor" / Hub centric rings 55mm to 62mm (custom x2, optional/not pictured)

  • Re-drill rotors from 5x114.3 to 5x100 at machine shop
  • Grind down knuckle by upper caliper bolt hole
  • Bend/cut/remove dust shield
  • I'm using 18" wheels, 17" TE37's barely clear but it's very close, could potentially hit balance weights depending on location within the barrel

This looks amazing. Thanks for sharing the valuable info. I’m looking to join some CT FB groups. Which one(s) should I consider?
