  • Bigger rear brakes?

    Probably more one for the tuners, had the idea of fitting rear disc set up off the Saab 93 aero, also fitted to the large engined vectras iirc, they use what seems to be the same calliper (yet to check against mine) with a different carrier. They are vented 292mm/11.5in diammeter 20mm thick disc. Anyone looked into this or able to confirm the calliper is the same?

    rear brakes

    Bigger kit allready done and on the Astra VXR sprint car at VXRPC

    Very effective, ask Sparky, Jon at Courtenays and a few others who sampled Vxr Astra braking forces at Snetterton last August.

    Prices to be released in January as Special adapters are required for mounting.

          The discs are not grooved, they are vented, grooves are not needed, they only cause more noise on the rear.
