This goes especially to Roy: :wink:

Any opinions to the Prostop 996tt brake setup as offered on frrax.com?
How does it compare to your Movit system, is it superior or inferior?

What kind/size of wheel spacers do you use, Roy to fit the brakes?

On the front I use MOVIT specific hub centric wheel spacers. I don't know the thickness right off hand though.

The 996tt kit requires a 25mm spacer PLUS an additional spacer before the rotor mounts to the hub.

The Movit is more expensive with similar hardware. TUeV for the other kit could be done I guess.
The spacers thing is what makes me think. I don't like them... generally.

Roy, what is the weight of your Movit stuff, i.e. calipers, pads, rotos compared to stock? Is yours much heavier?

Ben All I can tell you is that it is heavier.

With the 996tt setup and those spacer, you need new wheel studs.

Now, let's assume we take a STOPTECH kit which would need as the only spacer a 10mm one (I'm not 100% sure but that doesn't matter right now). Would I also need new wheel studs with the 10mm spacer?

I also found the H&R DRM TRAK+ spacer which looks like it has built-in new wheel studs...?

Yes new longer studs are mandatory . Also the Stoptech Kit is a pretty good kit .

OK. :)

Roy, can you take a look at this:
http://www.h-r.com/index.php?inhalt=pro ... sprache=de

The DRM system should be for our cars. It looks like that spacer is mounted on the "old" wheel studs and has built-in new studs. Can this work? I mean, aren't the old studs subject to forces that may lead to their failure with this system?

I don't quite understand that...

Ben

As long as the spacer is hub centric it should be fine. BUt Ireally wouldn't want to be putting the stresses of Hockenheim through them.
