Its incredibly good, I was used to the brake pedal sinking about 1/2 way prior to a somewhat brake response...now I have to get used to the new brake bias/power....its sensitive and feels great

Pops I just did the fronts for now...but this is a huge increase in braking so I may not pursue it for a while

I got it off a pal over on Titan Talk...he had this kit on his titan
Yeah, Rotora was in the QX/Titan/Armada game initially till Nissan redesigned the weak brakes and went with a bigger brake for the 06+ years
