    New type R..

    I was next to one this morning, and how big does the brake setup want to be, they were huge, looked at least 400mm, they filled the whole wheel.
    Bet stopping in those from speed is easy!

    About to say, nothing massive ! Cant be as the cars are light so dont need big brakes.

    Would have said 300-320mm imo

    Unless it was an aftermarket set up that the car had on it, would explain why it looks so big!

    They have huge brake dust guards behind the disks that make them look huge, have a look at a back wheel of a new civic next time yu see one!

    took the words right out of my mouth. The Honda's brakes are suprisingly small for a hot hatch.
