    Exclamation Brakes brakes brakes

    Basically I plan to upgrade my brakes this year because I want to go to Brands hatch with my mates.

    There seem to be a nice selection of kits under or around £1k I will hopefully end up with a Porsche set up as VXRCORSA888 will no as I bug him all the time

    But I have a few questions about the other kits:
    How many people have the Regal 4 pots? How much are they to replace?
    Same Q for the Vectra kit but on the astra?

    I thought more people would have the Regal 4 pots. And even though I just posted in the Wilwood thread I forgot about them lol

    I bought a big brake kit for my calibra a few years back from

    www.godspeedbrakes.co.uk

    Thay will make a kit for any car as thay machine there own brackets
    The kit i went for was AP Racing 6 pot calipers and 335mm discs bells and rotors with mintex ds2500 pads
    came to around £1200

    Worth a shout if your looking for a kit. He is a one man band setup so turn around times can take a few weeks

    Drives sapphire Black Astra VXR/ Calibra DTM Turbo

    I have customized Regal Brake conversion fitted (chrome regal embosed caplipers painted red) ... they are very sensitive and stop very well, still very impressed with them now after using for 6 months (can kick up a stink if you push them hard)

    Replacement Pads cost £160 and Disks are £330

    No probs, They are silent and never heard them once, Cannot fault them really as they have been nothing but good for my use.
