Looking to shed some weight.

What is a decent set of drag brakes that will let me retain E-brake (manual car) and won't give me lockup issues (have seen Baer brakes do this for a quite a few people).

Honestly I'd be happy with anything lighter than my current pp anchors.

I've used Aerospace and TBM. Both absolutely excellent. I like the Aerospace more for some street use mixed in because of their very robust design and large 13" rotors.

My TBM are smaller and lighter and supposed to be somewhat streetable with the vented rotors and F3 calipers. However, I have mixed feelings about the caliper bracket being mounted using the dust shield M8 bolts. Seems somewhat sketchy.

You think it's worth getting the whole kit or just looking at rotors and keeping the brembos? I really just want to save on that rotational weight without spending 2 grand on a set of front and rear brakes.

I think it's a good idea to get the full kit. The "light" rotors are a poor ROI. Very expensive and saving little weight in the wrong area.

$1400 for this kit. Saves over 55lbs
