The NC comes with pretty decently sized brakes from the factory, larger than the big brake kits we offer for the earlier car. So we didn't see the advantage in adding rotors the size of a pizza, adding a bunch of expense. Instead, we took a page from the Little Big Brake Kit we developed for the earlier cars and did the same for the third generation. Naturally, the calipers were properly selected to work well with the stock master cylinder.

Because the new calipers are aluminum, there is a significant unsprung weight savings: over 6 lbs per wheel for the four piston version. The six piston is 4.7 lbs lighter than stock.

We kept the stock front 11.5" rotor and replaced the single piston sliding caliper with the latest aluminum Dynapro design. This caliper is very stiff and gives excellent pedal feel. It also cuts weight compared to the stock one, and gives more even pad pressure. As an added bonus, it's very easy to swap pads if you're taking the car to the track.

Available either with a four piston caliper or a massive six piston option. The larger calipers will be the choice for hard-working track cars or V8 street cars. The four-piston caliper includes bridge bolts to make the calipers as stiff as possible.

Here's a specific list of what's included. There are lots more details below the list. 

  • Front big brake kit with brackets, stainless steel brake lines, BP-10 street brake pads, and four- or six-piston Wilwood calipers. Note that you'll reuse your stock rotors

A 3mm spacer, available from Flyin' Miata, is required for use with stock 16" and 17" wheels, although stock NC3 Club wheels require a 5mm spacer. They fit under most aftermarket 17" wheels without problems, including the TRM C3M 17x9. Please note that the stainless steel brake lines included with the kit are not the same as the ones used with stock calipers.

You can choose red powder coat or grey hard anodizing as a coating for the calipers. Bear in mind that the hard anodizing is un-dyed, which means that the final color can vary from caliper to caliper, due to differences in the forgings themselves. This difference can be especially noticeable between different caliper types, e.g., the front Dynapro calipers and the rear Powerlite calipers that we use. We can't accept returns for calipers that have different shades of grey. If it's important that your calipers match each other perfectly, you'll need to choose the red calipers. 

Template to check clearance! The same template works for both caliper options.

The included BP-10 pads are great for street use and autocross use, you'll probably want more aggressive pads such as our BP-20 or BP-40 for track use. We're unable to remove pads from the kit. 

You will reuse your existing front rotors. We can supply new ones if desired.

Excellent product and value

Great value. Looks fantastic and works very well. Note there is minor fabricobbling required, read instructions first to assess if up to it. But is not hard and the quality of the equipment supplied is high, so everything went together easily once the material trimming was done. Note using it with aftermarket 17x8 wheels, +45, easy fit with plenty of room, no spacer needed. Make sure to order the correct pads as well if ordering additional pads.

5mm Spacers recommended

Had a shop install these without any issues. Switched back to OEM wheels with a 3mm spacer and rubbed on the caliper. Bumped up to 5mm spacers without any issues. If you're planning on using spacers just use 5mm like the others have recommended.

Yes, spacers

Looks and works great. 3 mm spacers leave very little clearance, makes me worry something will scrape eventually. I'm getting the 5 mm so I'll breath easier. I have the 4 piston calipers and found that I did not have to cut the dust shield for them.

great product; get 5mm spacers for 10 spoke OEM wheels

The product is amazing and cannot recommend enough if you are in the market for a brake kit upgrade for the NC. The instructions were very well put together and show very clearly where and what needs to be cut/clearanced for the caliper and bracket. The only thing that needs to be taken into account is that if you have the 10 spoke OEM wheels and plan on running them, just get the 5mm spacers not the 3mm. I had an issue with mine under braking where the caliper would expand just slightly enough to contact the wheel and rub some paint and material away from the caliper. Nothing bad, just cosmetic. I talked to a rep from FM and he said that he'd only had the same issue one other time so it must be a casting defect in some wheels but he was nice and willing to send out the 5mm spacers.

Get 2 spacers

Great product. Little bit confusing about the spacers. Make sure you don't just get the one that you can click on. They did get it resolved quickly which I appreciate.
