as far as i remember, they are not interchangable (we all know HC/FC doesn't work)

but you can always compare at some wrecker?

well just comparing rotors/hubs. rx7s are slightly narrower...havent compared calipers or mounts.im sure its doable, but how about doing r33 upgrade?4 pot brembos or something.

rx7 has same spigot holes(or whatevr you call em)so should be the problem to clear bearings. it only comes to mounts but im sure they can be made to fit?

but what for?HE/HD brakes are pretty decent. but i you want slotted rotors, just buy em on ebay, they cheap as

really just for aesthetic purposes nothing like having a big wheel, and tiny oem brakes...just thinking about future projects!
