    Stock 19" Spielberg rims don't fit over these calipers; 8mm spacers are necessary.

    Nice

    Now you need some track wheels/tyres to do the brakes justice.

    Anyone interested in coming to our club day @ Winton on 6 May? Heaps of track time, timing equipment provided and about $150 from memory...

    Cheers Yeah I sized the brakes to allow 18" wheels in the future - planning to get some custom forged rims and AD08Rs down the track, but will wear these tyres out on the stock rims first.

    Can someone tell me where these Alcon Vwr calipers came off? been trying to chase them up for the rally car but have googled so much i am almost willing to forget them.

    need to eventually fit under a 15" wheel

    Worked on this since my last post Neuspeed RSe10 with Pilot Sport 4S tyres



    Also installed the RS3/TT-RS brake ducts, AU$54 from e-acca:

    Greetings.... haven't posted for years... still have my Mk6 R and it's time to update the brakes. Not sure I am going a BBK, but certainly in the market for suggestions on brake pads that dont throw out huge amounts of dust like the OEM pads. Anyone?
