Just thinking that the rear disc brake and calipers are a bit small... yes yes I know the tC's an FF but comeon now, A Brembo would almost double the size but I don't know if I wanna fork out 3000 for a full set.

I would personally go with AEM. ALOT cheaper.

i read the article in motor trend, and if someone hadnt swiped it off my desk i would refer to it now. it had the 70-0 braking results in it, and i remember the writer saying it stopped at or above the rest of cars in its class. so, i would imagine for a stock vehicle, all a big brake kit would really do for you is look super sick.

All you need really is some Brembo Blanks + Hawk HP Pads + better Fluid. Big Break kit if you are a hardcore road racer or a showoff.

I test drove the tC last night before I ordered mine and I have to say that the 70-0 was freaking fast! I mean, my parents were riding in the back seat and they were even suprised at how fast it decellerated. But anyways, scratch the whole bigger is better thing, I think I'll stick with stock for a long while.

A tad off topic but....What did your parents think about the back seat? (Roomy enough? Comfy seats? Head room? The moonroof view?)

The rear seats of the tc are really spacious in leg room. I mean you can stretch you legs back there... how many coupes can you do that in?

My mom (sat behind passenger) complained of head room (she likes to complain about everything) but yet there was still about 9-11 inches of space from the tip of her head to the rear window (My mom is 5'0") My father said he liked how much room there was in the back (sitting behind driver). The center seat however was a bit uncomfortable but it made up for it with the 3 point seat belt. Overall, my parents were impressed with the comforatbility of the ride back there.
