Stainless Steel Brakelines Installed/reviewed

Recommended Posts

My first track day on with this car, the brake pedal started to feel a little mushy 10 minutes into my third session (4 20 minute sessions).

I talked to my tech and he said the factory lines were rubber, with a metal "wrap" for the front. He recommended stainless steel braided lines off pelicanparts. I did some searches and found they were cheapest by far. I paid $80 for all four, which is cheaper than the next cheapest I could find for just two - brand unkown.

The next week I ran, 5 30 minute sessions. My brakes felt completely reliable throughout all the sessions. It was also a hotter day (100 F, track official saying 120 F ambient off the pavement).

For those running in such conditions, I absolutely recommend this mod before you go out and end up cutting your sessions short because your brakes are less managable. You should consider, however, I have noticed my rotors have more significant scoring. I don't know if this is a result of simply a higher aggregate of track time or if, and this makes sense intuitively, the only place left to give in my brake ciruit, is my rotors and pads.

Note - If you decide to buy from that particular retailer, they don't list the kit for the 997 Turbo. I bought the one for the 996.
