    Default Big Brake Kit...

    Well I thought my front brakes were big at 362mm and AP Racing 6-Pot calipers needing 18" wheels minimum to fit.

    But Regal now have a BIGGER brake kit ready for the Vauxhall Range.

    390 mm 6-Pot kits same as used on the Audi V10 R8 and RS6

    £2,139.58 if you're interested and you will need 19" wheels minimum

    I'm still using standard issue single pot rear calipers with standard pads No luxury 4 pot rears for me

    Next year I think I'll be changing the discs on mine as they are 3 years old now and worn a bit. Luckily I can just unbolt the bells, and change the rotary discs. Which helps keep the costs down

    how you find they're wearing? I know you do a lil more track stuff than me but mine have worn very well.. I had to change the fronts as I'd warped one when I'd wrote my car off but even after 2 1/2 years they'd still got loads of meat left..my rears are 325mm and by the looks of the wear they'll out last the car lol...I like the fact that the front pads(red stuff(aston martin/tvr)) are cheaper than red stuff gsi pads lol.
