Re: '84 GTV6 front brake mods
I had been looking at the RS Racing website and have already purchased a front anti roll bar from said gentleman. But did you see the price of the kit, 549 Euro, and thats with using the original callipers, albeit Brembo, but standard twin pot not four.
I am running standard wheels presently and will need to go for larger ones once I've engineered the swap. Not sure if 16 in's or 17 in's are the way forwards here.
I've gone for the 166 disc rotor's as they were closest in height to the original 1984 GTV6 disc's so that should help the swap somewhat. The other option was the disc from the same car as the callipers came from which is 305mm but marginally shallower on the mounting bell area.
For thirty quid, I thought I'd try the 164 disc's first, with the thought of moving to the GTV V6 disc's as a plan B!
As promised, I'll photograph all I can, you never know I may even submit it to the other transaxle community once it's proven.
