Bigger brakes?

1568 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 :)

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

Most active groups would be
Lexus CT200h USA, can’t speak for the Lexus CT200h Official group since many of us get banned for even posting helpful links. Jae also created Lexus CT200h Only which is continually growing daily
