brake upgrade :)

Well my next project on the 20v

Sourced 166 brembos callipers and brackets (not sure why everyone reckons they are a pain to fit) bracket cut from 10mm steel and gtv 305mm discs bolt straight on without splitting calliper for 32mm

Just gotta source some brake lines with 156 on one end and 166 at other and hope I don't need spacers although might be lucky as looks like std lines may fit

Actually may need 5mm spacing but that's fine

Right, everything sourced...

Nice 166 calipers,
Brembo discs
Allied Nippon fast road Kevlar pads

Total cost 330. Sounds better than the 900+ for brake kits or getting Mito callipers.

Just need to wait for parts to arrive then fit everything

Looking forward to increased stopping power

Well discs are here... god they weigh a lot....

Nice brembo 305x28 look very nice. Even have the centre and edges painted in nice greyish silver finish to keep them looking nice.

Pads look superb, very heavy also, backing plate, anti squeal and sides of pad all finished in red. Compound looks like it has a very generous amounts of copper in the material (apparently for better heat dissipation) so hopefull they are actually pretty good pads..

Just waiting on callipers and brackets
