After the series of 8V JTD turbo upgrade (200/210HP 159 turbo)
and 8V JTD gearbox upgrade
, I'm here with another one. Enjoy.
Braking power is more important than the engine power - you know - you CAN move off, but you HAVE to stop - so after increasing the engine power, it was quite logical step. I decided to exchange whole uprights to improve handling as well. So went the GTA way.
They looked quite badly rusted, when arrived ...
...but after few hours of cleaning with radial steel brush on drill-machine, ...
... cleaning from rust dust and demoisturing ...
... and after two layers of anticorrosion treatment, they didn't look so bad.
One Squadra member just upgraded from 305s to 330s. So I got his 305s.
Almost complete set with spare discs (and with cleaned calipers)
Dry fitting test - looks good.
Wheels fitting test showed that 12mm wide spacer is needed to fit the wheels (both summer/winter have ET35 as GTA ones though)
I'm not happy with the spacers, hope they will not wear the bearings a much.
Painted and lightly machined brake discs
Cleaned caliper (LEFT), lacquered and polished (RIGHT)
Some DP41031R yellow stuff :-) just delivered. I wonder why they don't sell them also for GTA.
(Only Dodge Viper, Fiat Coupe and Alfa Romeo 3.0 GTV shown on the sticker)
