    Default uprated brakes..front/rear biasing?

    been looking at hi-spec brake conversions..thinking about a 6 pot 360mm up front and a 4 pot 'something'mm rear..do you think i'd be ok just dropping them on or would I need to re-bias them(basically front to rear ratio) ?

    in a word nope....

    888's 6 pot conversion was fitted to a members car, and they were told by 888 and the brake kit manufacturer to not worry about the bias...

    having been to 888 and seen the size of the BTCC vectra's brakes front and rear a roadgoing big brake conversion won't worry you at all...

    I have the 345mm conversion on my Gsi...stops like no tommorrow, but isn't 'tail light' under heavy braking...
