I run 32's on mine and it stops all right, as far as brake upgrades you can run the 4 door brake set up on yous, it will bolt right on and it has a fined rotor instead of a solid one like the 2 doors. And as for the rear, disk brake conversion, I am going to do mine soon I'll let ya know how it works

the fined rotor help for dissipate heat but they wont help for stopping.
I guess I have to find some good brand rotor or bigger one (probebly then I have to change the caliper and ...)

Heat causes brake fade, brake fade causes poor braking, so a fined rotor that dissipates heat will help braking. I'll take pics when I do my rear disk conversion and send them to you

if you take the rear drums from a sport 2 door, or a 4 door you get a larger drum, and shoe too. all bolt on, just unbolt the brake line, the 4 nuts on the backing plate, slide hammer the axle out, and use the the drums and backing plate from the new housing. all done.

same with the front like mudchild said nice and easy all stock parts.

oh, and if you got an earlier tracker, you can swap in the master from a truck with abs, it has a 1 inch bore instead of 7/8ths much better stop ability

Interesting question - Here's a potential solution: swift GTI front calipers are the same mounting pattern as honda CRX front calipers..but the CRX calipers have about 30% more surface area on their pads.. I'm pretty sure there are lots of good rice-rocket upgrade for CRX's....


SO if there are any knuckles for trackers/sammy's that are the same mounting holes as a swift GT/GTI..well do the math.
