Oh for crying out loud, why can't embedded attached images have a max-width CSS setting?

Sorry for the huge images.

Be careful not to over cool your brakes as well which can drop pads out of ideal temperature ranges, also make sure to clean out all the road debris and lumps of rubber from slick marbles on track after using these sort of direct ducts, take it from me when i ran similar ducting you can get a lot of crap into back of brakes with it, small fires from burning rubber isnt nice either!

Valid point! I've got some mesh off cuts, I'll mesh up the fog light ducts.

As Ross said, looks like a bit of a mosh match kit.

Godspeed discs and bells i think on those, dont look too healthy either but need to see both sides and measure thickness etc.

Pads look like our XP20 ? loads of meat left so thats good.

Discs are finished really as 32mm new and 30mm recommended minimum, you could run them longer but with track use you need to be careful going thinner disc as its under a lot of stress, also need to find out what they are for replacing as Ross says they are not Alcon bells and discs, presume Godspeed as they look like it with the straight internal cooling vanes rather than the curved you get with a premium disc like Alcon etc, curved offers better cooling.

Thanks Ian
Going back to the ap,s , the guy has measured the discs at 26mm and I think Ross sport website say 28mm when new?
These are to fit under 17’s I should have said

Ah ok, for reference AP kits for the Evo4/5/6 use the 330 x 28mm disc and recommended minimum is 26mm, so yes they need changing

AP kit for the Evo7/8/9 use a 332 x 32mm disc with recommended minimum 30mm, this kit willl fit Evo 4/5/6 with correct wheels.

You will often find that used BBK for sale have discs on minimum or below, this is because people get a shock when they price up replacements discs so sell the kit!.
