brembo upgrade

Hi guys,

Im thinking of putting brembo calipers on the front of my bugeye, how do they rate compared to the subaru 4 pots that are on it now.
also is it poss to fit the 4 pots to rear of the car and would this be all worthwhile
thanks.

Re: brembo upgrade

I will do soon, the calipers come with new yellow stuff, and they seem to stop me well, the only thing that bothers me is ive got grooved disks, when i brake i get a slight vibration through the steering colom now, is this the disks?

I have the DS pads on the front and although they are good they make some mess of the wheels. The dust that comes of them is terrible. I'm getting red stuffs next to try out apparently they have much less dust.

Could well be take the discs off and lay them flat on a table and should see if warped or cracked or any hot spots on them like pic here
