Default Brake kits

Hi guys,
I am currently in the process of planning my build Iím looking into brakes at the moment. I am going down the 4wd route, I have found that there are kad, tarox and Wilwood big brake kits, understandably there isnít a wilwood 6 pot from what I can see. What are peopleís experiences with these kits?

At the moment I am leaning more towards the kad 6 pot big brake kit, but kad donít do a rear brake kit thatís bigger then the motorbike calipers. I know normally I would be using Mazda mx5 brakes and discs.
Iíd ideally like both sets of brakes to be the same brand! So what do you guys suggest?

If anyone could help thatíd be great!

Hi, im running a wilwood 4 pot setup myself. i had discussions with them in regards on the braking requirements for a mini, i am only running half inch rear wheel brake cylinders in the back as pretty much all the braking is up the front. If i had the money i would stick to KAD products if you want to go top shelf, when i purchased their bias pedal box they gave me plently of help for setting up rather than just sell me something and no help like some businesses can do.

I was thinking of kad as my main option! But it’s the tears that I am a bit worried about I’m unsure on how to do the rears as I’d like to use updated Mazda discs with kad front 4 pot calipers would this be possible to do?
