  • Brake upgrade and remap

    I have booked my VXR in to Thorney Motor Sport for a full Miltek system and the guy at Thorney has suggested a stage 2 remap. Just wondering what everyone thinks of the differance and if i need to upgrade my brakes. Bad news is the earliest they can do it is mid July , good news is just in time for BTCC :P

    Stage 2? Hell yeah!!!
    I have a stage 1 and WOW!!! You'll certainly noticed the difference...changes the car and makes it better believe it or not! If you are not aware...a stage 2 is stage 1 but with the full Milltek. TMS also provide a tweaked map too.
    As for the brakes...I'm not sure. I have had the remap for a while now and I don't *think* the brakes are necessary...the standard ones are pretty good. A few times they have worried me a bit though...so unsure. I'm sure John (TMS) or Dave (VPC) can advise more on that. However, if I had the money for them, I probably would get them!

      Well Jon was doing a good job in making me want it, and i think with that remark you said about the brakes i will go for the stage 2.
      My mate has a Focus RS which he claims has 280bhp, as long as i can whoop his **** i will be happy.

        Hi Mandy, go for the whole lot, ive had the stage two and booked in for stage 5 suspension and brake upgrade at end of month, so now go faster, handle better and stop in time, oh! and the milltek still gives me a big ol grin every time my right foot twitches.

            Its all good, if you think the cars an animal out of the box. Add a few tweaks and you can really feel what its capable of.
            Oh and thorney motorsport is highly recommended, they treat the car like you would.

                Yep Jons a nice bloke and luckily for me im only ten minutes away.
                Since having the stage two, all i seem to do is brake, keep catching other cars to quickly, thats the main reason i am upgrading the brakes, just so i dont climb into the boot of the car in front. :? . a worthwhile investment, if not straight away.

                      I'd doubt you'll get any comments back....not in 3 days. It'll take at least 5 days for the jaw to recover from being wacky on the ground!!!
