Default D2 racing parts?

I just starting to look around for some performance parts for my next build and I fell onto D2 racing.
Has anyone used their brakes or suspension parts?
Ever heard of them? Whats their rep?

There stuff seems priced pretty good and they have eight piston brakes!
Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Don't go cheap on something that will be stopping your car and potentially saving your life...

BBK are one of those "you get what you pay for" items. Don't skimp out on em

Admittedly, I have no experience with them, but....

Red flag number one:

Taichung City 407, Taiwan (R.O.C.)

Red flag number two:

At least get someone who speaks English to translate your website.

Example: You no need to choose the front rotor size larger than the
rear which likes the original, if does that is no good for your vehicle.


Seems they don't fully understand bias either.

Why don't you want StopTechs? They and Performance Friction are the best brakes for our cars.

D2 racing is garbage. More pistons on a BBK does NOT mean it is better, usually more pistons = more bad. Same with suspensions. If it is a damping-adjustable coilover system complete with springs, shocks/struts, camber plates, and rear shock mounts, and costs less than $1500, it is absolute garbage. If it is a coilover system and does not have any damping adjustment, it is most definitely a waste of money and time.

You sound like you don't have the slightest idea about BBKs, which means you really don't need one. Save your money for trackdays and seat time, and get a BBK when you actually need one.

He was being nice. He was trying to keep you from wasting money on things you don't need and have no experience with. He gave you, a complete stranger, sound advice.
