Godspeed

Morning all, got access to a computer at work so been a bit naughty......shhhhh!

Been busy handling goods, i mean car parts...got loads ordered and received.
Question for all you in the know.
Has anyone had any dealings with Godspeed Brakes been looking at their kits available and thinking bout getting some AP's front and rear?

What say you?
Any advice would be greatly welcomed.....

Re: Godspeed

Nobby248 Cheers, spoke to Ian the other day he seemed to be on the ball.
i'm running 6 spoke 16" speedlines at the mo. he reckons AP 4 pot 308 kit up front nd the subaru 2 pot calipers for the rear says i'll have to up the wheel size to get AP's all round

Nobby Being a family member of Ian any chance of a discount?

Thinking bout upping the size of me wheels to get AP 6's front and the AP 4's on the rear. me brother "evilution360" (lancer register) reckons the ride quality will be shite if i up to 18's

Maybe a nice 17" wheel been looking at Enkei alloys?

Any thoughts lads?

Re: Godspeed

i would not go 18" on a classic personally, i drove anSTI RA with them and it was a bit of a bone shaker. Ian Godfrey of Godspeed brakes does a 325mm front brake set up for 17" wheels. They are meant to be a massive improvement over standard size discs ,, here's the link...... 325mm Four Pot Conversions

Re: Godspeed

Brumbrum noted with thanks....thought 18" would be to much, don't really want to lose the ride quality and want to keep hold of mi front teeth......
Ian don't mess about...he is selling some good products


Mikef04 sorry mate not keen on the style of those wheels.....
Would of thought though someone will buy em on ere?

Re: Godspeed

Just make sure he has the goods on stock ready to go, I had a issue last year with him over goods, took me a while and a lot of time to get sorted.
