Welcome aboard, Zeckhausen Racing! It's good to see another autosport performance vendor enthused about a car that's only been on the market since April of this year.ekool said:

Thanks! I can't wait to get the new rear lines so I can finalize my rear brake installation.th59718 said:Welcome, Dave! Really enjoyed reading about your brake upgrades. Nice job!
is it possible to upgrade the rear brakes only and leave the front alone?DZeckhausen said:Thanks! I can't wait to get the new rear lines so I can finalize my rear brake installation.
I also installed Bluetooth (UConnect) on my 300C and will be putting together a tutorial on that. It was relatively easy. The only problem is that my Bluetooth decided to stop working yesterday. Doh!
It is physically possible to do this. But it wouldn't make any sense.james jefferson said:is it possible to upgrade the rear brakes only and leave the front alone?
there is no plan, i was just curious and i do appreciate your very kind and lucid response. of course with my lack of proper blood flow to my brain ill forget what you said in an hour.DZeckhausen said:It is physically possible to do this. But it wouldn't make any sense.
The vast majority of braking on the 300C is done by the front brakes. On a street car, you are nowhere near the thermal limits of your stock rear brakes. For a car that may get taken to the track, the front brakes are the first priority for upgrade. And the bulk of the improvement in brake pedal feel comes from replacing the front brakes with a StopTech or Brembo kit. The rear upgrade is primarily cosmetic. And if you just do the rear, then it would look rather odd.
Can I ask what motivated your question? I'm just trying to figure out what you are trying to accomplish so I can give you the best possible advice.
