    Default VXR 345mm brake's ( part 3 )

    Well after getting new tyre's and TPMS fitted the other week
    Now was the time to get the brake's upgraded

    The call went out to my old friend Steve at LMF for VXR 345mm brake's and disc's
    we had a good talk about different ways of doing the set up so I went for 12 grooved disc 345mm on the front and grooved 292mm on the back police spec pads on the front and back.

    Now to Ian Redgrave of the legend MPG garage in middlewich







    Ian starts tacking off the old disc and caliper's on the driver's side and then moves to the front passages side
    Which i then start cleaning and respraying the inside the wheel archer's on the drivers side and then follow Ian around the car.


























    all done and BIG BIG thanks to Ian Redgrave of the legend MPG garage in middlewich

    Steve of LMF for all his help and all things

    cheers lads

    I'm confused now.... As you have had someone who knows what there doIng fit your brakes he's got the discs running in the opposite way to what you think they should. Take it they have been designed to run that way?

    It just don't look right. Sorry

    I have to agree they look like they have been put on the wrong sides but hopefully I am wrong.

    Might have been a good time to uprate the brake pipes as well which I am going to do on my next pad and disk change.
