Rear drums –> rotors conversion??



  • First off, I'm from the US so sorry if my lingo isn't right.

    I'm thinking (dreaming of really) converting my Mx3's rear drum brakes to rotors, wondering if I will get a significant change in performance at the track?

    I didn't know if anyone has attempted this and if so what advice you could give?

    I planned to go to the parts yard when it warms up and look around for ideas but while it's cold I guess I will look around the net.

    Thanks guys!

    Basicly you'll have to go to a junkers and grab as much as you can off a GS.

    You'll need the hubs, spindles, calipers, rotors, brake lines, hand brake cables, and the booster as far as I can tell.

    Good luck with the swap.

    A Disc/Drum setup is perfectly fine to be honest, if the car is just a general fun car then I'd leave the braking system as it is and just make sure you've got good quality pads and shoes.
