Just so you know, 347stroker pointed it out to me that Barry Smith Motorsports (BMS) from Queenbeyan actually stock Brembo 4Pot Calipers which bolt straight on (straight swap)

Same rotors, nice calipers :P

But! $800ea side. Bit costly but thought i'd mention it. Alternatively you can get mustang ones from overseas for about $200-300 but with shipping cuz of weight and us conversion it'll be the same.

I think ill be holding off, the twinpots are ok.. although need to slot the rotors as they're bloody useless after a while

This could be another possibility for a big brake upgrade....get the spindles etc from Joe from the EL GT setup and then this pack...hmm so tempting

incorrect. as his calipers will already be 4pot calipers.

Spindles from joe+rotors+brembo's will set you back eASY 3000-4000$$$$.

Joe will be doing a 4pot caliper setup too for almost or half that price.

apparently have some for series 2 au's only. . i think

I just meant for the people who r wanting a 4 pot upgrade sooner than when Joe might be ready to unveil his ( I believe they are still being tested arent they ? )

Yes we have a few issues to sort out but shouldnt be too long. Just gotta get more time in the day to get them done. Joe is run off his feet with work, and these are work, but more play than work if you know what i mean

what sort of issues Brett, not the kind of issues that result in a new front end?
