Ksport big brake kits provide the ultimate in stopping power for your vehicle. Integrating new brake technology into the design of the kits allows for a kit that highly reduces brake fade and continually cools and refreshes the brake pads surface under braking. These brake systems are designed for easy installation with minimal tools required (in most applications).
The Ksport big brake kit includes:
* 8-Piston Aluminum calipers (Rear - 6 piston)
* High quality brake pads
* D.O.T. Compliant Stainless steel brake lines
* Machined aluminum hats
* Carbon steel brackets
* 330mm (13") large ventilated discs (17" wheels required)
* Ksport or Ferodo Brake Pads .

they do sound pretty good mate, and it seems like they`re built for motorsport anyway judging by the other bits that they sell.

I'm sure they are worth the cash

Maybe try and phone a few places up and see what they say about them?

never heard of them or anyone using them, at the prices they quote i can't imagine the calipers to be of much cop............

330 kit with their own pads is £727.66+VAT (£855inc.)
if you work on around £4-500 for bells & discs it means the calipers and pads are only around £300 and they also provide b/lines and brkts too..............
