2pot read conversion

Recommended Posts

Made quite a difference to mine stopped it squirming under heavy braking but I did have the rubish 1 pot calipers with solid discs which had uneven wear on the inner / outer faces .

I think the later uk has the vented rear discs like the early jdm's .

The vented uprated discs on my brvs scoob did seem better than my solid rear disc set up . the newage rear discs are bigger dia (less fade) and obviously the calipers press a piston on each side rather than relying on the sliding mechanism to nip both sides of the discs equally

Both my 94 jdm and 97 UK ran a R160 rear set up which use the same handbrake set up as newage wrx .

I was lucky enough to pick up relatively new discs and pads with my 2 pot calipers (£150)

So just had to buy the conversion brackets from Asperformance and grind the rear splash guards off to fit them .

If your unsure if your later classic handbrake assembly is compatible give Alyn a call when ordering the brackets and he'll know
