My tape measure eyeballs can't measure the difference. What does it work out to be?

Not sure on the Brembo distance but the Wilwood is just under an inch. Updated 1st post.

I like them better when towing. Only made it around the track twice before I broke my PS pump so can't give a high temp analysis. Day to day driving is equal or better and only on the stock pads that come with them. Have some more aggressive daily pads and a set of racing pads to try out next year.

You track guys might have more front wheel options with the extra space and still keep the good braking

Thanks, Chad. That is good info to know. A modular wheel could fit those calipers with no problem and drop considerable unsprung weight. The stock rims are beautiful, but heavy
