Question on Road Racing/Autocross/Drift Wilwood Setup

I'm looking at upgrading my Z32 front brakes to this custom Wilwood kit that seems to be popular with the road racing community. The wear items like pads and rotors are relatively inexpensive. It also seems to reduce a ton of unsprung weight and is supposedly perfectly balanced with z32 rear brakes. I was considering a CTS-V setup, but this seems like a better option.

Feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I run them and love them. Braking has improved although I can't take full advantage of this kit because of the stupid amount of front camber I run they do the job extremely well and you lose a lot of weight.

Thanks!

What are you running for rotors and pads? How long have you been using the kit?

Wilwood kit is great.
Like you said, they offer a wide array of race pad compounds and they are cheap.
by the time you start piecing together Brembo kits, you're not too far off from a complete Wilwood kit, not to mention you won't need the Z32 BMC.
Brake bias is great.
I have the Evo 8 Brembo with Z32 rears. Setup works great, but the unsprung weight difference between these and Wilwoods are huge....and did I mention the pads are way cheaper.
I use CL Brakes RC5+ and I go through couple sets per year $235 vs $95 wilwood...

Yeah, that was where I looked first. Looking for some outside that site. Thanks.

P.S. - I have no idea what the harness comment is about...
