Post Re: Big brakes
can i ask whats wrong with Hi Spec, i have them but havent tried them yet.

Could you not just use cosworth fronts? very cheap and easy. I would look at making some thing up. I made the big brake kit for my last RX7 using M5 front discs and the new shape rx7 four pot callipers with spacers. I went from 275x22mm to 330 x30mm, once i sorted the bias and stuck some hawk pads the brakes were out of this word, they easily realed in the 460 bhp and out braked my mates 997 porka on the track without ABS which was a very nice feeling. The whole kit cost me less than £200. To go out and buy one was about a grand.

You obviously dont need that bigger brakes, but its very easy to make something fit, especially on the kit car where everything is that much smaller and the ford pattern is easy to buy for.

The FD RX7 calliper is a nice light 4 pot unit which will fit under a 15 inch wheel on a a 275 mm disc, you pick them up very cheap and race pads are easy and cheap to pick up, just a though if you fancy having a play.

I think you will find that Cossie calipers do not fit on a standard Sierra upright. Or at least the ones I tried didn't :(

Don't go bike calipers, they're not designed to stop a 700kg car.

In the dutch kitcarclub there's one that didi it on a bec and they caught on fire.

I've only ever had 247mm disc's . Vented to start with then solids once I realised vented was overkill. You need good stoppers on track for quick laps and my Willwood then Raceleda 4 pots plus Hawk Black pads are an awesome combination . My solids were originally 9mm , slotted and drilled but overheated and cracked so now have standard 12mm solids without drilling or slots :roll:

Post Re: Big brakes
I've got two options at the moment - either solid 257mm from rally designs or I've found a set of front and rears from a Radical that are 240mm vented, the rears have no handbrake option though....


Does anyone have a discount card for rallydesign?

anyone interested in a group buy for a new wilwood brake kit, if there is interest I'll investigate a price.
