If the car sees any track work, then slotted discs, ceramic pads, dot 5 fluid & braided lines would give a significant improvement. Pads & fluid being the most important!!

Fresh Dot 4 fluid & quality pads will be of great benefit if it only gets used on the street because the pads & fluid really do have the greatest influence on the brakes performance!!


How much you looking at spending?? & what is the car used for???

What pads are you using???

Cebco brakes will quite happily take $2500 or more of your money to fit 330mm discs & twin piston calipers. They are based in Vic. Stock 287mm can still lock & flat spot tyres with quality pads so the only advantage the 330mm have is heat dissipation with repeated hard stops, ie. circuit racing.
