!!UPDATE!!

OK, I got good and bad news

-GOOD-
It all went together great, and I was able to spin everything by hand and it spun freely and seemed like it would work just fine.

-BAD-
The offset of my Miata rims will not allow me to put my rim back on over the corolla caliper.:angry: From the looks of it the Corolla Caliper outer brace sits out farther than my Tercel one. So my only option is either buy new rims or toss a spacer for my rims.


So It works :bananarock: I was just not able to give anyone road test feedback. I am going to be ordering a set of spacers for my rims, so then I can toss all this back on.

This means if I have the corrolla caliper already but I'm using the paseo rotors I can just switch to the Mazda rotors and it should be fine right?

They fit under a 14" rim. It would just depend on your offset of your rim, like mine.

I pulled my caliper setup off a corolla from the junkyard. I don't know the exact year but i know its the 93-97 body style.

I also stumbled on a OEM wheel stud that fits our hub and is 7-8mm longer. So I can run my 5mm spacer for my rim:bananarock:

Great info here...I definitely see this as a possible upgrade for several people, including myself.
I did the paseo brake upgrade, and eventhough it was only a slight increase in rotor size, it feels a little more responsive.

Well considering the size of the Corolla Caliper and the pad surface. Then toss in a thicker, bigger rotor all on a ~1900lb car :yikes: That is some braking:2thumbsup:

I ordered a set of spacers with extended wheel studs for my Tercel. So when I get those I can put my brakes on. I will post pics:thumbup:
