    Default Warped my discs

    I need to upgrade my front brakes on my 150 Elite.
    Will 302s be good enough with some decent discs, or do i need to go bigger?
    The car is pushing nearly 200Hp and i do heavy braking at high speed.

    302mm will make a difference for you.. a nice set ot mtec grooved/drilled disks make a nice set... 314mm do make even more of a difference and the disks and pads are still in the same price range as the 302. If you go to the 345mm hirsch/vxr brakes then the price goes up significantly as do the disks and pads...

    Only reason I'm asking about the 302s is because there are some for sale.

    Found out the 302s use the same pad and calipers as the standard, so 314s are the way forward.

    Picked up some front VXR Discs and calipers today, from Metro car breakers. £110 the lot, well chuffed
    just had to adjust my backing plates a bit.

    get Hel lines instead - cheaper and just as good.
