Hello all again!

My s2 AU XR8 has a little vibration under braking from higher speeds. Now obviously it has slightly warped rotors, however! The question is, is there any brake upgrade kits out there that will bolt straight on or with very minor modification? I'm after better braking performance.

Also, I have only owned the car for a little while and the clutch pedal sticks out a good 3-4" further than the brake pedal and it's a massive throw to the floor to completely depress the clutch. The clutch friction point is towards the top of the clutch throw.

Can the clutch pedal be adjusted to have a shorter throw? I want it to be at least in line with the brake pedal.

I am not sure if it matters, but the clutch feels to be in great working order, never slips and no unusual noises.

Cheers!!

My pedal sits high too, although not 3-4 inches, more like 1-2.

Thanks guys..

The clutch pedal IS adjustable, I adjusted it to sit the same as the brake pedal.
