My brake kit finally arrived today. Got a partial sponsorship from Rotora that covered most of the $6500 retail price. 380mm Front and 355mm Rear Slotted Rotors. Forged Six-Piston Front and Four Piston Rear Calipers.

Waiting on my reverse bleeder to get here on Friday, then I'll post some pics of the install.

Thank you, Torino!

Yesterday's install, as promised. Initial bite, fade resistance, feel and overall performance is greatly improved. On to my next project.

Yes they would, but I kind of like 'em that way. Truth in advertising. Haha.

The Camaro wheels are just interim wheels until the HREs are ready.

The HRE's look great.

Some of Honda's newer model aluminum wheels are looking a little funky, design wise.

Just curious. Realizing money isn't everything, how much has this all cost so far?

Not including the next set of HRE wheels, about $10 to 12K.

You are a lucky man. I can't imagine my wife letting me put $12k into my car.

Does your wife have a sister? :-)

Luckier than you think... She's an ex-wife (with two sisters, BTW).

Update

Threw on some new wheels and tires today. Third set in six months. Pretty happy with the results, so these may stay on for a while.

2016 OEM Camaro 20x8.5 +25 Offset Gunmetal and Machined Face
245/45-20 Falken Azenis FK450 A/S









Wow, it looks awesome with those camaro wheels, along with the tasteful change in ride height. It's not "slammed", but lowered just enough to look purposeful. It just looks "right" this way. I have to say it's probably best looking current-gen Ody that I've seen.



I completely agree. It's getting close to OTR status.

The man needs to get the ITR sticker and use the Exacto knife to good effect!

this van is looking sick! especially the BBK!

the only thing i change would be to use air suspension instead of coil so u can slam it when u parked at home depot but be able to drive it around town.

The van looks fantastic. Next step should be one more J35 in the back turning the rear wheels - give those crazy ass brakes a workout!

Haha, thanks AznSupastar. I have a few friends on airbags, but it's never been my cup of tea. I do, however, like the look of a slammed car/minivan. I've always been more of a track/handling guy, that's why I went with coilovers and usable suspension travel/ride height.

wooderson79, that would be awesome. Wouldn't it? Maybe a TL-s swap with SH-AWD? Or an RDX Turbo drivetrain? Heck. Might as well go with an NSX drivetrain, since we're both dreaming. Haha.

Car Show Season and in full swing. Eibach Honda Meet. HRE Open House. Surprisingly, I took second place at a local show at one of the military bases, here in San Diego. $300 cash prize. A 1965 Dodge Coronet, deservedly, took first.

Took some time after the HRE Open House, to test drive a 2108 Odyssey Touring and make a trip to Sea World.

With my son at the Eibach Meet in Fontana.

Forgot to mention it. If you're ever in the area and have a chance to make it to HRE's Open House. I'd highly recommend it. There's alway a few million dollar cars on display or parked in the lot. $25,000+ in prizes. Top prize is any wheel custom fit to your car. Any size, shape or color. Michelin throws in $1500 in tires. This alone, is $15,000. Maybe, 500 to 1000 spectators. So your odds are pretty good.

My parking/show package from HRE. It was gift wrapped.


Odyssey EX-L, I test drove last week.


Always forget to include a pic of my 2006 Touring. Soon to be a three minivan owner. Yes, I love Odysseys.

Hey Max, curious if you got your HRE's and how it turned out? Also, did I read your last post right in that you pulled the trigger on a 2018 Odyssey?

How does the new brakes feel? Considering doing something like this for my parents 2017 Pilot. The brakes are terrible on it. (or maybe the MDX brakes).
