    Default Vectra VXR Brakes on your Astra?

    Well that's exactly what we're doing right now.

    We've put together a kit for the Astra VXR that will allow you to run the 345x30mm discs commonly found on the Vectra VXR and police spec pads to suit.

    We've been running the same setup on our own Signum diesel (much heavier car) and the performance is stunning! We're running the factory 17s with these brakes on the Signum, so whether you have 18s or 19s on your Astra these will fit no worries.

    Here's a few pictures of this morning's activity. This was using the prototype bracket made for development. The production versions of these will be put together during the week and then prices will be finalised.

    The custom carriers decrease in price the more that are made in one go. so we're more than willing to organise a group buy to get them out there before the winter kicks in properly, it's perfect for the big power cars, or those taking advantage of our IPF offer as an all round package

    Factory Astra Brakes:



    and the Vectra Brakes under the Factory 19s

    they are larger diameter discs.

    Astra VXR is 322x 28mm, the Vectra runs 345x 30mm.

    Yellow Stuff pads are £97.70 for the Vectra VXR :-)

    So are you selling just the custom carriers or the complete set up ie calipers, discs and pads? and can we just buy the custom carriers on their own??
