Thread: VXRD AP Racing Brakes

    Default VXRD AP Racing Brakes

    Ordered my new braking system on Monday this week and 888 confirmed that the order has now been placed with AP Racing for a 6-pot 362mm Red Caliper system (Thats nearly 14.5 inches in diameter - they're HUGE)

    Apparently I dont need to do much to the rear brakes, but should expect the finished articles in about 6 weeks time.

    AP Racing have had to re-engineer the calipers to fit behind the VXR 19" wheel as the normal 6-pot system doesnt fit properly... which is why I have such a long wait...

    So the VXRD might not be the fastest from 0-60 but it should be the fastest from 60-0

    Just gotta make sure whats behind me before I hurl out the anchor !!

    Oh, and I chose Red only because it fits the colour theme of the car better and also wanted it to be more noticable than a standard VXR (as they are all Blue).

    When speaking with 888 they told me that the 6-pot brakes had been fitted to one of the Vauxhall VXR test cars... and one of the first comments that always came back, after a test run, was "bl00dy good brakes"

    One week on and no news yet... not even a delivery date... going to speak with 888 tomorrow to see if they've heard anything

    I hate these Sri brakes... just no good at all... car feels half finished...

    Please 888, pimp my brakes !!
