I did a search but to no avail. Has anyone here retrofitted the Supra TT brakes on the FC. The 5 lug pattern is the same as seems like it would fit but custom brackets for the calipers would be needed. Advance Auto sells the remanufactured calipers for around $90/ea and you can get Brembo stock rotors for around $50.

Front Brake Size F 323 mm / 12.7 in

why? the brakes on a mazda rx7 are already designed better than most cars on the road. You can't get much better then a 4 pot caliper with aluminum halves. Not sure what the supra brakes are, but anything is possible if you have the money, knowledge, and skill.

Supras have 4 pot aluminum calipers as well but with a 12.7" rotor. Some of the Nissan guys with 240SX are using this setup instead of the 300ZX TT upgrade because the Supra rotors are larger.

i actually had a set of the calipers a while back, as long as you have the correct offset brake rotors (not going to be supra but i think some 13in 2piece ones from wilwood in SN95 mustang fitment will work) and the custom bracket made they will fit, with the (correct size 17+ and proper disc wheel). It is worth mentioning that the supra calipers are HUGE and are made of cast iron. With proper pads, a T2 caliper is able to lock the tires on my car at a very high speed if i want to which would seem to indicate that i don't need any more brake for the tires i run (bridgestone S03). Also you'd have to rebias the front and rear was just putting on stronger fronts could actually make your car stop slower. Brake upgrades aren't really something you can just play around with. If your goal is to put supra calipers on the car for the sake of doing it, then my all means thats your call. If you actually want improved braking there are better ways to do it.
