I searched and couldnt find anything. I am looking for 60-0, 70-0 or 80-0 braking times for a N/A MK4. TT's have a claimed of 125 feet at 60-0, but its more like 115ft, wondering how much worse the NA is.

i believe one of the mags tested a TT from 60-0 at 109 feet. For a while they were the best brakes car and driver or some mag tested i think.

NA's are probably around 140 would be a guestimate

Actually, I read something a little while back that said something about the NA being able to stop faster than the TT. I'll try to find it.

Stopping distance has a lot to do with how you use the brakes. You don't need to put it to the ground all the time. Also, if you don't use high quality brake fluid, that can change how well the brakes work. I've got Castrol DOT 5 in mine and it feels so much better than the DOT 3 that was in there from the factory.

Well the matter of the fact was that there was not enough gripping force. I had no tire squeel and no abs till like around 40 mph it was weak sauce. Dot 5 is cool but I heard that if you get any water in your brake system you are fubarred.
