Hi All,

I've got a brembo junior kit on my 156 with 305x28mm drilled brakedisks from Brembo. I use ferodo ds2500.
After the brakes started to vibrate i scimmed them and they where fine but now they started to vibrate again and want to replace them with something better.
I was thinking to put 2-piece disks on(with alluminum bellhouse) for they can withstand better heat,but cant find them in the 305 size.
anybody know if somebody sells them or maby better 1 piece disks?
Or go to 330mm?, but then I have to change the calipers also wich is more expencive.

Bottomline what do you all think is the best way to go/wich brand of disks?

Ciao,

Tim

If you want to replace your discs by two piece brake discs forget. Its far too expensive but... there are company's that do that kind of discs. One exemple is CTF.

315€ per disc is a little expensive.

Im my opinion you can go for 330mm convertion. Its a cheaper and also more performer solution (probably you get the same performance from a 330mm standard Brembo disc and Ferodo Premier that you have with your actual setup).

With some imagination and work you can adapt the 159's 2.4JTD brembo calipers to your existing brackets. The pads are the same as 330mm GTA's also the brake disc contact surface.

PM me if you want some more info.

Cheers

I would just some new standard brembo grooved discs.

The Brembo kit is called the GT conversion kit here in the UK and I was lucky enough to have one on my 147 2.0 fast road conversion. With the braided lines and the DS2500 it is the best conversion. Felt better than the 330mm brakes on my GTA with standard pads.

I would save the expense and just replace with new brembo discs or the high performance ones which are less prone to warping...

So today i've decided to keep the 305 discs with the brembo junior kit.
I've ordered Carbon Loraine RC5+ brakepads and I still didn't made my mind up concerning the brakediscs.
So far I've got 2 choises its gonna be the Brembo drilled again (delivery within 1,5 weeks)or the DBA 4000 (7769 SLR)
only problem is the Dba's need to come from Australia and it could take up to 3 Months:wow:
to get them here (by boat).:confused:
