i would be interested, do they use the stock MS3 discs? and would OTS pads still work or would you have to run a "special sized" pad?

How are these compared to stock? I'm not impressed with my stock brakes and was planning on an upgrade in the future.

The are 4 piston calipers and they each weigh only 7lbs a side, which shaves about 8lbs of weight on each side. This means less pad wear, and better stopping times.

Plus they come with everything you need, pads, steel brake lines, brackets, calipers. We don't have released stopping distance data yet, but stay tuned.

are they OEM sized pads or pads of your own size?

Not bad for new calipers, pads, lines, and all the goodies. Just need to get some slotted rotors and brake times will be gone by at least 10-15 ft. As kyle said tires help too!

Why are you guys bothering to upgrade? The stock brakes do a pretty decent job especially mazdaspeeds. Im upgrading once I hit 400whp

Stock brakes kinda suck.. you have to be like full pedal pressed to get any kind of action out of them. I like a linear brake pedal.
