Subaru STI Owner shares his AP Racing Brake Kit Experience04.16.2019
One of our Subaru STI owners dropped us a line to tell us how our Essex Designed AP Racing Competition Brake Kit has altered his track day experience. Here's what he told us:
"The Essex brake kit has dramatically improved my experience driving my 2009 Subaru STI. I've experienced a few different brake issues at the track, from boiling fluid, long and inconsistent brake pedal, and pad fade along with a mushy pedal. To try and solve these issues I tried a few different sets of pads along with Girodisc rotors. When I was fed up with these issues causing downtime and a lack of confidence at the track, I contacted Essex. I told them the issues I was having and they gave me advice on how to fix them while staying on my stock braking setup. I was very surprised and pleased because they were not just trying to make a sale, they just wanted to get me back on track and driving again. I then inquired about their brake kit for the Subaru STI. They told me the benefits and advantages over the stock Brembos along with suggesting Ferodo DS1.11 brake pads if I were to buy this brake kit. I am very pleased with their customer service. I bought the Essex Designed AP Racing Competition Brake Kit and have not looked back. Gone are the brake fad and the mushy and inconsistent brake pedal, and now I have complete confidence in my brakes at the track. I can now focus on my driving and having fun. I was also very impressed with the installation instructions provided with the kit. They were comprehensive and didn't leave you with any questions during the install. I have recommended Essex brake kits to my friends and would recommend it to others as well. It goes without saying that I would definitely buy another Essex brake kit too."
