Hi guys,

as we all know the brakes on the BA/BF are shocking.
I have had enough of re-grinding my rotors etc...

What would you guys suggest as an upgrade?

I was thinking DBA slotted rotors on the front and a set of Bendix ultimate pads...

Anyone in S.A that can reccomend a good place to do the work would also be helpful

Adz :)

FTG has a good cheap upgrade kit using PBR rotors and calipers and it comes with pads too. Don't use Bendix Ultimates, they're way to hardcore for street use imo.

upgrade to the FTG pack (that is the BF xr6t and xr8 package) they are 322mm compared to the 298 you have now
I have the ba premiums which are 325mm pulls up awesome!

Btw been covered plenty of times before - i think lukehimself has a thread on what to do and the differences
You can also upgrade the rear to bigger by putting territory callipers and discs on them.
FTG can help you out

Cheers Nicko.
Yeah having a slack day (heading out son to a few stores - but nothin too hard)
Already written $1.5 mill this month - so i figure i earnt a quiet day (also it's me B'day today)

business good for you over in Vic?

I was thinking of going the FTG package. it seems like a good deal.
KPM want to charge $850 just to put on DBA slotted rotors and a set of Bendix pads :shock:

Also - How is your rig going?
To tell you the truth, im a bit over my XR.Fed up of annoying rattles and minor problems that keep happening.
I think the BA looks s**t hot, but the build quality isnt that great.

Im hoping the orion will be better, prob trade the BA in when she hits about 90K
