Gonna fit braided hoses and upgrade the front discs and pads to my V6 GTV :thumbs:
Can anyone recommend any, not for track but just fast road :confused:
Also will the calipers accomodate a bigger disc & can you use DOT5 fluid? :(

Don't use DOT5 brake fluid.

A good DOT4 or a DOT5.1 will be fine.

I don't think the calipers will accommodate bigger discs.

Use either Ferodo DS Performance or DS2500 pads with Castrol Response Super Dot 4 fluid.

I've got the ATE Blue brake fluid in mine now.
Made it very easy to see when bleeding.
They also do an identical spec Gold colour version, so you can alternate.

Thanks for the advice fellas :thumbs: Just gotta pick some discs and pads now :confused: May go to Demon Tweeks in Wrexham next week for a trolley dash :lol:
I think you'll be able to find the parts you require at a much better price if you shop around the net.

I've got them on mine now, the Ferodo DS2500s on stock discs is a better combination with some good fluid.

Red Dot brakes are very similar to Tarox so I'm led to believe.

Simon, you can buy your discs from Red Dot with 40% discount if you are a club member.

Thanks for all your advice fella's :thumbs:
After much thought I have a plan and a shopping list :)

Stock front discs
Ferodo DS Performance Pads
Goodridge SS Braided hoses
ATE Super Blue Brake Fluid

I think that will do the trick :D
