Well like most aggressive drivers, I wanted to upgrade my brakes. I didn't want to custom fabricate or have someone fabricate me a bracket at this time though so I found an alternative. It happen to hit me while working on my Scort next to my wife's 03 Protege. I've noticed that lots of parts are similar so I stole one of her rotors for 15 mins while she wasn't looking. :lol: Fit the hub wonderfully and the caliper fit as well so I decided to do a bit more digging. Hopped onto Bembo's online catalog and found out that the rotor is the same diameter but 2mm thicker. Those 2mm might not sound like a lot but it's 2mm more then you had before and the vents are designed better so it takes more heat before you have problems. You do loose about half a thread on the wheel studs but that's no biggie in my book. I threw in an aftermarket twist of course and went with PowerSlot Cryo Treated rotors and Hawk HPS pads. I also took the liberty to install my SS lines in the front. I need to get some new line nuts in the rear before I try putting the rear lines on. They wanted to strip. :? Old POS rotor. New rotor. Notice the the vent ribs go all the way down. Here you can see the 2mm difference. Little side by side action. Shot of the larger vents on the new rotor vs. the old rotor. Here is a little installed shot. Another angle. And behind the rim. Edit 08/07/07: So quick little recap here. This works on all Escorts that have the 10.25" rotors. Easiest way to tell if you have this size is remove a wheel and check to see if you have 14 22V stamped on the top of the brake caliper. If your car has or had 13" rims don't bother looking because you have the small 9.something inch rotor. The rotors you want are from a 01-03 Protege LX. Make sure they are 4 lug and not 5 like those found on the Protege5 or MazdaSpeed Protege. I got mine cryotreated and slotted because that's what I wanted but you could easily go with Brembo blanks or some other variation. Brake pads are standard Escort stuff but the better quality pad you get the better the brakes will perform. Lines are not a requirement either but will help with pedal feel so you might want to do it while you are at it. I did because I was tired of the crappy stock brakes and pedal feel. Remember, brakes aren't something you want skimp on or half @ss. They are probably the one area everyone should invest in but rarely do.
