Brakes with chips
I am currently trying to sort out some uprated disks for my car I've had a good response from RedDot(see below) but I'm after more options/advice/experiences. I've run their fast road pads and they're not bad.BTW Squadra chip is well worth the money.
Thank you for your recent e-mail.You have got 3 different options for
upgrading the brakes on your Alfa 155. It all depends on your style of
driving and the budget you want to invest on brakes.
We can offer you a range of brake discs that varies from 6, 20 and 40
grooves, all heat treated.
For fast road use and the occasional track day we suggest to go for the 6 or
the 20 groove discs. The 40 groove discs are suitable for highly modified
vehicles ad racing. That doesn't mean that you can't use them on the road
but they need more maintenance (cleaning the grooves) and they are noisier
in operation than the 6 or 20 grooves.
For what concern the brake pads we have got two different kind of friction
material. A Fast Road Kevlar based mix which works from cold up to 500C. The
next one up is a Semi-Competition mix which again is suitable for track days
Please find as follow the retail prices you have requested.
