Well answers please, I need some new new front discs.

Should it be Brembo - heat treated?
black diamond?
EBC?
etc.

Thanks all

If you drive hard or do any track days, the only answer is to get a set of two piece discs!
The choice is yours: Dragon, Godspeed, AP, Movit and probably more. But don't bother with run of the mill stuff as it won't cope!

As already said it has to be bells and amp; rotors but you also need to change to a set of better pads as well , plus if you are doing track days run in brake cooling pipes , PE do a nice kit or you can make it up yourself .

Insbro,
Have yr standard disc's warped , if they haven't they probably won't . Lot's of people , me included , r ok with standard brakes.

I can supply u with Tarox , have fitted them 2 a few Evo's now , no problems so far. Can also supply (and fit if needed) some very nice braided lines with STAINLESS STEEL END FITTINGS ,so no corrosion like the normal cad plated steel 1's. Wud also advise u 2 change brake fluid , I supply and recommend Brembo LCF600.

Original Post:

can you get ctf in the UK?
yes, you need to import them though; sandtler in germany have a set that they can send you; email michaelk for details. he bought his there and they got a 2nd set. they sell them for less than what they normally go for, around 400 - 450 £.

sorry for the spelling, my shift key just stopped working!

The EVO VII has another problem which can cause the discs to warp. If someone is interested why I can tell'em offline but not keen on posting it on the MLR, you could get sued, banned whatever.
All the people who haven't warped their standard discs just don't drive hard enough, full stop. Try harder. Do 10 stops in a row from 200km/h to 0 with four people in the car. They will warp if the pads don't just fall apart from the heat before you completed that.

Cheers

Mike

Sam, AP do a 2 piece replacement for the Evo. Around £600 I think. PE have a write up on them on their website.

See here

I am not allowed to uprate the disks on my Group N rally spec evo 5 and 6, so have to use standard ones which seem to work fine, but I do change them twice a year, I can get them ( and sell them on) for £150 for the pair, so even when they do eventualy warp, they are cheap enough to replace again!
Try running slicks on track days, or moulded inters for road use, then you don't need to slow down for corners so much, then you won't overheat them!

Mike,

My E6 has now covered 32K miles, still using standard discs and they have not warped. I have used the car on numerous trackdays and I can assure you I brake very hard on road and track. I have boiled race fluid and my calipers are dark blue/brown. I have overheated my brakes many times cause of hard use and insufficient cooling of the standard setup. But my discs are NOT WARPED!
The reasons for this are 1. I'm lucky 2. From new the discs had a 4500mile bedding in process.

Claudius,

You are my hero.

I bought the car with 4500 miles on the clock, and the guy I bought it off was a poser(he lived in Monaco), not a driver, so basically the brakes were never used in anger for the time he owned the car.
BTW a set of pads nomally last me a trackday.
