Customer Review of Scion FR-S Essex/AP Racing Competition Big Brake Kit


We recently sent out a survey asking for customer feedback on our Essex Designed AP Racing Competition Big Brake Kits. This customer is a friend from the north, currently beating up on our Scion FR-S Sprint Competition Big Brake Kit! Below are his thoughts on our system.

Your experience level & driving history (e.g.- I have been tracking cars for 10 years with SCCA, etc.)

I've be tracking for 3 years at Calabogie Motorsports Park with the BMW Car Club of Canada and the Motorsport Club of Ottawa

How has the brake kit changed your driving experience?

With the OEM, the dust boots would melt and brakes would overheat and fade if I stayed out for more than 30 minutes. With the brake kit, I can stay out on the track much longer, without any fade at all.

Problems that the brake kit solved (e.g.- pad fade, disc cracking, soft pedal, etc.)

Pad fade, dust boot melting

Favorite product feature

Quick change pads

Comparison to other products you’ve tried in the past

Besides the Sprint kit, I've only used the OEM brakes

Customer service by Essex before and after initial sale

Excellent customer service, including responses (via the FT86Cliub forum) to inquiries

Documentation and ease of install

Very straightforward in install

Would you buy it again, and would you recommend it to a friend?
