Is it me or are the brakes on the hawkeye 160bhp non turbo terrible? I literally feel they have zero stopping power. Now I'm aware clearly fluid, tryes, pads, discs all play a part in this however are they known for being a poor braking system on the hawkeye. Or is it my modle GD9 being a non turbo all having poor brakes. My classic WRX I had previously seemed to have a far greater stopping power. I have been looking at the GD9 brakes avaliable and looking at ebay it would appear STI WRX four pots and 2 pot calipers front and rears fit. Is this the case? If
I put on a new Dayco cambelt kit when I bought the car at 35k miles - both the Japanese made toothed roller and the small idler roller (factory fitted?) were pretty rough in spite of the low mileage. I'm now (at 58k) having to fit another timing kit because both the tensioner roller and the small idler roller are noisy and on the way out. The smaller idler is running very hot. Has anyone else had premature roller failure and any recommendations for quality replacement parts? Thanks
