the corolla rotors would be a nice upgrade, the larger lever-arm would have more braking power, while the increased diameter & width would handle track day heat with ease on a little terc

Three inherent issues exist in the starlet/paseo/tercel braking systems when looking to performance:

- Choice of friction compound on pad
- Choice of brake fluid
- Ability for brake master cylinder to flex off the firewall under heavier braking.

Running huge discs or multi-piston calipers are definitely not required to address the issues above.

You will actually save yourself a lot of coin addressing the fundamentals of braking.

On our track car we aren't running big brake kits or multi-piston calipers yet we still pull up on a dime and outbrake many other cars in our class.

Cheers,

PB.

wasnt someone making brake cylinder braces for LHD starlets/paseo/tercel?

i'd like to get one see if it makes a difference.
braided brake lines definitely do.

i am going to fully install the corolla brakes tonight, and see if there is any clearance issues, but i think they will fit fine.

To keep it short and not interrupt this thread I'll keep it simple and short. Yeah, I have one made. I fitted it to my Paseo once. It was very nice and enhanced pedal feel a LOT. See the thread here:

Thanks you all.

So you think that the LHD Tercel/Starlet/Paseo brake master cylinder could handle with the larger calipers without losing capabilities?

Thanks again
Best Regards

this is not a completely direct swap.

the calipers and rotors fit, but the rotors rub somewhere, and i couldn't get a wheel to bolt on, not even the corolla wheel, without hitting the caliper. there is a mounting depth issue between the hub and the caliper bracket, they are too close together.

this weekend i am going to get a complete coroola spindle/hub assembly from the junkyard and see if it will fit.

the corolla wheel fit fine, the noise you heard was the backside of the rotor scraping on the caliper, like i said last night, the rotor needs to come out a few mm, or maybe the corolla spindle mounts the caliper a hair farther back
