Are you happy with your 917 brakes ?

I'm not sure what kind of pads I have on mine, but they don't feel as strong as my old 87 Carrera. The guy who sold the 930 to me said something about these pads wouldn't spew off a lot of brake dust...... so, I assume maybe they are some kind of organic pads.... I should have asked.

Anyway, my question is, what is a good upgrade on the stock 930 brakes?

Change your pads. If you street drive then put in OE 930 pads. That is what I have and I love them.

78 & 79's

Maxx1,

To the best of my knowledge, only the 78 and 79 930's came with the floating rotor, 4-piston style brakes.

I love them, extremely powerful. In fact they over power the factory wheels/tires. Now that I run 275's and 315's, I nolonger have that issue.

Best of luck

Paul

78 & 79 930 don't need any help in the brake department. The OEM is the best = 917.

Did the later cars not get 917 brakes?

The later cars have fixed rotors, not floating.
