Guess which brakes found their way onto the new ALMS M3???

"Front brake system: Six-piston aluminium brake calipers, inner-vented grey-cast iron brake disks 380mm in diameter

Rear brake system: Four-piston aluminium brake calipers, grey-cast iron brake disk, 332mm in diameter"

If the stock hardware is so good, why didn't they use it???...

Be good,

-just came home from hospital...wife just gave birth to son #2... 9lbs15oz ...all is well....
race car vs. street car. why they used them on the ALMS car:
1) much more resistant to fade.
2) less weight,
3) easier to change brake pads.

you will not need upgraded calipers on the M3 - they only thing you will need for the track is track pads.
