One of the biggest goals with our 1992 Suzuki Cappuccino is to improve on the fun factor of our tiny little Kei roadster: preserving a balance of stopping, handling, and power is key to what makes this car so great. We’ve got some power upgrades in mind, so we need to balance that out with some more grip and more stopping power. On both of those fronts, we’ve got a new wheel and tire package planned that should make a huge difference to how this car handles and stops. But as we were test fitting wheels, we found that we would have to do a little work on the brakes. Follow along as we tackle some important braking upgrades to our baby Suzuki.
While test fitting new wheels (a process we will detail later) we found that the brake pads the Cappuccino came equipped with were badly worn. So we decided to swap out all four corners with Project Mu’s HG+ pads. Project Mu has a huge selection of pads for the Cappuccino, ranging from OE replacement to full track day, with everything in between.
