    Big Brake kit

    O.K. I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the wildwood 13.06 superlite 6r big brake kit. Is it worth it? Or is there a better setup out there for around the same money. 2002 TA WS6, only driven in the summer,
    rarely in the rain. I just enjoy tooling around the city, it will never see the track. Thanks for your time.

    Is that kit for just the front or for the rear too? If you are look at either I would seriously look at either the cts-v or c6 z06 brake upgrade which give you bigger calipers with more pistons and allow you to run 14" rotors in the front and I think it is 13" or so in the rear. I personally have upgraded my front with 4 piston cts-v brembos and 14" c6 z06 rotors but they have 6 pistons for the cts-v v2 that work as well.

    These are a lot less expensive and you could put that money elsewhere that you saved if you wanted to. These are just some additional options.
