Brake Upgrade!!!!

Hi Guys,

We all know that the GTV tends to have that spongy non-confidence inspiring braking system....

what did you do to rectify?

Is changing pads, braided hoses and fluid enough.....

or should i go the long expensive way fitting new discs and 4 or 6 pot calipers spending a fortune

any help is appreciated!

For more on this have a look at Aishas site Theres a write up on how he fitted braided hoses.He found them a cheap but worthwhile upgrade if memory serves me coorectly.

It's that ABS that does my head in... brakes seem like they'd be better if the ABS had more bottle.
