  • Alcon 4 pot brakes

    As above, this sale is for a full set of Alcon 4 pots in red. I am selling everything needed to just bolt them to the car and away you go.

    Kit includes, calipers, brackets, pads, discs, bells, rotors, braided brake lines and all bolts and washers.

    - 4-Pot Monoblock Caliper
    - 343mm Floating Disc Diameter
    - 30mm Disc Thickness
    - Ferodo DS2500 Pad Compound

    This kit was fitted new to my car and I am still on the first set of pads but these are around 50% worn.

    Would much prefer collection but can post at a really big push.

    PRICE - £850
    FITTING (if required) - £30






    Thanks for looking and fire away with any questions.

              to be honest those disc and bells are f$*ked , the bells must of been glowing to discolour the ally and discs like that , good chance the discs and bells are warped , and the integrity of the materials espically the bells would be questionable now as there not meant to take that much heat .

                ^^ ditto, what have you sone to them? This setup will need a new set of pads, disks and bells at a cost of approx £1000. Have been through 2 sets of disks on my Alcon setup and they have never discoloured anywhere near that much

                If you are going to use them for track work then you also need lots of cooling to go with them like on a race car

                best of luck with the sale.....

                  HA HA you got to love VXRO.
                  I am not getting into a debate on the integraty of the materials or anything else for that matter.

                  The kit is as it is and you take it or leave it. The bells discoloured almost from the off and has never caused an issue.

                  They are in absolute working order, In fact I am that confident in this that I will fit for free, let you test them, if you have any issues remove them again for free.

                  I promise that once you test these brakes you wil be chucking your money at me to leave them on!!

                  Cheers for all comments.
