  • New Big Brake and Coilover options for the Corsa

    There isn't a massive choice out there for these items on the Corsa (or Astra for that matter). XYZ already have kits for the Astra but have just released Corsa fitments!!!!

    Coilovers

    Adjustable height and Damper
    Anodised - so wont rot

    When fitted recently to the Tack Mak we wound them down and couldnt turn the wheel the car went so low. There is a local guy with these on his Astra H and raves about them!

    £575 Collected

    £600 Delivered to England

    Brakes

    lots of options but you guys would most likely be looking at the 330mm kit (for 17" wheels) or 355mm (for 18" wheels)...both are 6 pot calipers!

    You can choose your colour of caliper - shown on link below

    These things took a whole track day in my evo and never faded (Kirky is a harsh track on brakes). A very impressive bit of kit at a fraction of the cost of others currently on the market!!

    355mm 6 pots - £1050 delivered to England!

          Pads that are supplied are dusty but work surprisingly well! they are capable of taking track abuse in a ~400bhp evo if that helps any mate?

          On the site it tells you what pads fit. I cant remember exactly which ones but there are quite a few - i seen DS2500's and that was good enough for me lol Replacement discs are £400 (need to check if thats disc or full rotor assembly...can check this on Monday)

          As for performing on an Astra - I dunno mate but they are bigger than the like of AP's and Alcons that are currently offered so should stop it fairly well lol As with most things Vauxhall, it takes a while but once one person takes the plunge more people will go for them.

                        XYZ products are being tested/abused on the Track Mak and they have stood up to the abuse thus far (Stroker'd, gt35...500+bhp car here)!!!

                        I never had coilovers on the corsa but i have experienced the XYZ and Tein Super Streets on an Evo - the XYZ's are every bit as good, so at a fraction of the price, they are a bargain.

                        You can get right up to 400mm kits but tbh the 355mm is more than manly enough to stop most road going cars. As I said before the 355mm kit are on over 10, 400+bhp Evo's over here and none have failed.

                        Would love to see a set on an Astra or Corsa

                        Also do harnesses.

                          i ve looked at these a few times and they look good Andy , do you know what piston size they use as the caliper looks to be designed for a 4 pot but they have managed to squeeze 6 pistons in ( smaller pistons ) so just wondering on piston size as that will determin pressure area that is transmited to the pad ( amount of pistons doesn t always mean better braking ) i ve tried the tarox 10 pots on a R32 and they where **** compared with the alcon 4 pots as all the pistons are smaller and tend to run through the middle of the pad .

                          Great price for what you get though
