Re: Willwoods where can they be got?

Here you lazy git...

You will need radial mount, which will need custom brackets fabricating.
It will all be a custom fitment, unless they have already done a 146 system for std 15" rims (which is unlikely).

As a reference, AP do a 156 race kit with 295mm discs that fits under some 15" rims. It is also possible to fit 305mm discs under very special rims. No chance at all under std 15" rims.

Re: Willwoods where can they be got?

I think that 295mm must be the maximum for 15" wheels but its not going to be a straight forward job to work everything out unless there is a kit specifically for the 145 / 146.

You also need to think about the size of the pistons in the calipers.

Whats wrong with just using the 284mm discs and calipers from the 145 2.0?

Ya they don't have a set up for the 146 I've already been on that site but it's all gibberish to me. What kinda of brackets would I need making?? Braking is a new thing to me for fitting etc.


I'd love a set of Ap's but they are serious chunk of change.

I have Ultraleggera wheels on my car at the moment. And I am going to do an engine change sometime in the future but it will be a Turbo engine I think so I want some good stoppers for it. Ya I was thinking 284mm or 295mm max the car is not that heavy. I know my friend has a set of them on his Glanza under 15" wheels I must get onto him again.

Any one have any other set ups??
