    Default 314mm Brakes

    I'm looking to price up an upgrade and wanted to ask; other than the discs, calipers and pads, is there anything else I should get. I heard people talking about the braided hoses.

    What else do I need?

    Thanks guys

    New hoses are optional, I didn't bother & the brakes are great.

    In addition to your list you'll need new brake banjo washers, mounting bolts, thread lock & brake fluid. Can't think of anything else off hand but someone else will be along soon if I've forgotten anything.

    You will also need new carriers to hold the bigger set up, VXL list them as seperate from the calipers.

    Where can you get the new banjo washers and mounting bolts from? I didn't get them with the kit. Would the stealers have these?

    The bushes you mention allow the calipers to slide on the carriers. If you buy them as a kit (as I did from LMF), the slide bushes are already fitted.
