Huh. Is it possible to run the HPD calipers with the stock rotors? 16lbs unsprung savings over the full HPD kit. Probably not worth it, but any time I see weights it sets the gears a'whirling.
I don't think that will work, the HPD calipers stick out more towards the front (just like the rsx type s calipers)... the pads won't cover the stock rotor's surface like it should....
the only option in order to save weight on the hpd rotors... would be to find a lightweight two-piece rotor w/ the same specs... but so far no luck

With the spare bolted down and the floor reinstalled how badly does the floor panel fit? I have thought about getting the spare tire kit but am leery of the safety and loss of storage under the floor.
the spare wheel tire I have is a 16x7 w/ the recommended tire size (195/55R/16)... this pushes the floor 3" upwards... the reason I went with this wheel is because w/ the regular steel wheel it comes with, you can't go more than 70mph, the car just moves to the sides with every bump it hits on the road.
If you were to go w/ the steel wheel set up... I believe it will only push the floor 2" upwards... but to be honest, I don't notice any loss of storage space on the hatch... unless someone is planning on putting really tall items in there.
