never heard of it, but why not go to a well known brake...like AEM or BREMBO? maybe someone heard of it....sometimes small good compaines are not heard of.

i never knew there was a brake performance section, haha and im a MOD.

as far as i understand, fastbrakes just pieces a bunch of random aftermarket brake parts together and try to sell it as a kit of sort.

i don't know if rotora makes a kit for the 4th gen, but if they do, it'd be cheaper than the brembos.

the only options i'd recommend would be (in the order of ascending cost and product quality):

1) aem o.e. caliper bbk
2) aem 4-pot
3) rotora bbk (if they make one)
4) mov-it bbk
5) brembo bbk

note that #2-5 may require you to use spacers and/or get new rims to clear the brake calipers.

My thing with fastbrakes is that if the master cylinder will work in conjunction correctly

as i replied on the other forum. wilwood does not currently have a kit out for accords. should you buy a wilwood kit from fastbrakes, the proportioning valve won't be correct and will throw off your brake balance, probably quite significantly.

yea, making sure your brake booster, brake master cyl, proportioning valve if you have rear disc all are things to keep an eye on when upgrading ur brake system.
