Hi...i've had the supra TT brake upgrade for over 5 years.... i have DBA 2 peice rotors....but i usually use supra TT OEM pads since they come with factory shimz...
They r not aggressive so the pads and rotors last long time...but i'm not happy with the stopping power!


I've had project Mu pads, no shims they move around my caliper... (warped my brand new brembo rotors in 1 week) "my fault 4 not breaking them in proper"
i've had others as well...but the problem is the moving of the pads, because aftermarket pads don't have shims... and the supra calipers are not like the porsche TT or others where the pads get screwed in the caliper.

WHat do u guys use in ur TT calipers???? any problems like i am experiencing?

I use Carbotech pads with stock shims and stock rotors, never had a problem at all. I like them so much that I'll get them again when they wear out.

If you're really concerned about stopping power you should list what tires you're running. More often than not, people are using crap tires with good brakes and thinking its a braking problem.

BTW, I used Hawk HPS pads and stock rotors....
