Brake Upgrade


Recommended Posts

To go with my VF34 (or 35) upgrade I am planning i want to improve my brakes, as the standard WRX ones arn't the best. 

 

What are my options if I don't want to spend too much to see a good improvement? (Indication of cost would be helpful) 

 

Kind regards

Chris

Uprated drilled n groved discs n pads would improve things a bit if you're running stock .(about £150 from godspeed or asperformance)

A brake stopper about £40 stops the bulkhead flexing and gives a better pedal feel

Braided brake lines about £60 gives a firmer pedal too .

Failing that front brembos from a newage sti with second hand discs n pads cost about £450 .

6 pot ap's are £1,200 new if you've got plenty of spare £'s

TBH i'm not sure i'd bother. I did pads, disks and lines and they still gave up the ghost on the isle of mann in less than an hour.

 

cheapest option i would entertain is D2 6 pot, but for the price difference i'd just say sod it and get the AP's godspeed has on offer. £1250 for a 330mm 6 pot full kit, also pretty sure ian said they go under  17's.

Had a gearbox let go on my nissan years ago on way back from Newcastle to Helensburgh - drove from Carlisle onwards with 4th gear only - was lucky it didnt grind to a halt but I broke a shaft so no grinding
