been looking at changing my front discs and as much as id love a BBK, i have no intention of going near a track so dont really think i need to splash out £1600-£1800 at least. ive been thinking of getting a set of clubsport discs but browsed the mtec website and found these.
these are for a leon or earlier s3/r and after looking at dimension on replacement discs for those earlier cars (on the nitrac wwebsite) from what i can make out all the dimensions are the same as our standard discs except they are 345mm rather than 340mm. does anyone know if these would fit straight on to an R?
Ive got a 7.5 stock R, the brakes overheat after maybe 5 minutes of fast road driving on B roads and not even Heavy braking (public road obviously so never at the limit) The pedal gets soft and loses feeling and requires more pressure for the same braking just in case im describing it wrong lol.
Do i need better discs or just better pads? what is the weakest point in the stock setup as i find it pretty poor that the brakes arent really up to much being sold as a performance car.
Well aware of the need for spacers with these wheels but concerned that the kits I'm looking at won't even fit within the wheel due to the internal diameter. What kits have people managed to fit in the Cadiz please? Would be great to see pictures too!
Thanks in advance!
I know this is a heavily debated topic, but I am thinking of upgrading my brake pads from the stocks...
From what I have seen the two options I am deciding between are the Ferodo DS2500 and the EBC Yellow stuff?
Has anyone tried both these pads and could offer any advice? Any other options people could recommend?
(I am running drilled discs by the way, so aggressive pads should not be a problem)
