Arrow KiDo Racing High Performance Brake Kits - Fitting and prices

KiDo Racing Brake Kits are manufactured in Taiwan to a race proven design. Attention to detail and careful selection of materials ensure optimal performance under all conditions. Each kit is tailored to suit a specific model of car and comes complete with all hardware required to fit the kit. You will need to supply your own tools and DOT4 or better brake fluid. The manufacturing plant is ISO 9001 certified for quality assurance, and all Brake Kits purchased through KiDo in Australia are covered by a 6 month warranty on calipers and 3 months on rotors.

FITTING:

Most Rotors are a 2 piece design, being an T6061 aluminium hat (car specific) and a cast iron alloy rotor which is Kit specific. The rotors vary in thickness from 18mm solid (1 piece) for some rear brake kits with internal drum hand brakes, up to 32 mm ventilated for the larger front brake kits.

Rotors are available in the following sizes:

Rear: 285mm between 18 and 26mm thickness (depends on application)
302mm between 18 and 26mm thickness (depends on application)
325mm between 18 and 26mm thickness (depends on application)
NOTE: Rear rotors usually are 1 piece and incorporate a drum handbrake. For pricing on REAR kits, please ADD $250.00


Front: 285mm 23mm thickness (Mini 6 Pot Caliper requires 15 wheel)
Front: 300mm 24mm thickness (Mini 6 Pot Caliper requires 16 wheel)
Front: 325mm 25mm thickness (Mini 6 Pot Caliper requires 17 wheel)
Front: 330mm 32mm thickness (Mid 6 Pot, Big 6 Pot & 8 Pot Caliper requires 17 wheel)
Front: 356mm 32mm thickness (Mid 6 Pot, Big 6 Pot & 8 Pot Caliper requires 18 wheel)
Front: 380mm 32mm thickness ( Big 6 Pot & 8 Pot Caliper requires 19 wheel)


The Calipers are billet T6061 aluminium precision machined to tight tolerances. Calipers come in 5 sizes and some are available in different widths to suit different rotor thicknesses. These calipers accept AP racing style pads.

Sizes: 4 Pot (used for rear brakes, rotor sizes from 285 to 330mm)
Mini 6 Pot (front and rear kits, rotor sizes from 285 to 330mm)
Mid 6 Pot (front kits, rotor sizes from 330 to 356mm)
Big 6 Pot (front kits, rotor sizes from 330 to 380mm)

How do these compare against OEM Brembo's? Have you run any tests we could be privvy to?

*Genuine enquiry as a WRX owner considering an upgrade*

I really wish I had some hard data to provide. I have tried to organise some brake testing to compare KiDo with the STI Brembo but so far there have been to many problems. Stupid things like getting 3 of the same cars together in the same place, one with stock WRX brakes, one with Brembos and one with KiDo brakes.

Even then, what do I compare, the Kido 330x25mm rotor with a 6 pot caliper (just a little bigger than the Brembo) or the 330x32mm or the 356x32mm and do I then drop an 8 pot caliper on it? Note I haven't even considered the rear end which gets even more complex.

Something which might help down the track is the WRX KiDo is sponsoring in Targa Tasmania next April. It is running mid6 pot front and 4 pot rear calipers on 325x25mm front rotors and 300mm rears.
It also has 4 wheel digital brake temperature display.

If you send me a kit over I'll be more than happy to test!

In all seriousness, I can appreciate it is a difficult thing to test, and even under the best conditions the critics would still find a flaw in the methodology. It will be interesting to see how it performs in Targa Tas next year though.

No Problem! Just drop some cash in my account and I'll send you a kit

The major flaw would be the lack of independence in the testing. People would immediately conclude that the testing was rigged to provide the desired outcome.

The manufacturer hasn't performed any cross comparisons for promotional purposes 'sure its debatable but carried on by companies world wide, and the results would quite probably be argued by competitors if the information is deemed incorrect, giving the validity you desire', and you're unable to properly secure items for testing?

Are you stating that the exact same brake package you're selling will be used in said Targa vehicle?
