Has anyone had braided brake lines made for their Insight?
Yeah, when I was screaming up behind slower cars on the autobahn recently and had to slam on the brakes when they wouldn't move over fast enough, I sure could have used some six piston Brembro calipers, braided brake lines, and high-temperature brake fluidHas anyone tried high temp. brake fluid along with those braided lines? How about a group buy on some six piston Brembro calipers to eliminate the massive brake fade we all are experiencing.
It's pads you need to help with the fade, also drilled/slotted discs may help with allowing the pads to de-gas & prevent glazing if they are getting that hot.In addition brake fade is a known problem. I had the misfortune of going to 'Essex' on Sunday for a party and after multiple 60mph stops at junctions (roundabouts) every mile, I was surprised to find a lack of brakes on the fifth high speed stop (a little scary actually). Anything that can be done - better brake lines, better fluid or better pads must be welcomed.
Could be more going on there than just the stock brake lines.I just don't like the feeling of my brake pedal getting softer even after a fresh machine bleed because the lines are getting old. I'd rather just replace it once when it's due to be replaced and be done with it.
