Redtop Brake Upgrades
« on: February 22, 2007, 23:10:28 PM »
Just wondering if anyone knows of any brake upgrades for a Redtop? I don't mean drilled discs and the like... I'm on about bigger discs and calipers that will mount onto the standard hubs and use the same mounting points.

I'm sure I read something somewhere about Astra ones pretty much bolting straight on...?

Surely someone somewhere must know of an upgrade that uses the existing mounting points...?

cally mat, the black diamond is optional extra, they come with just plain vented discs, and also in 4 stud. I fancy the look of the 288 upgrade, would go 308 but i dont really want 17's, got some 16's in the pipelline
