    New big brake kit ordered.

    6 piston 350mm F

    4 piston 330mm R

    Should pull up nicely with the next planned power mods.

    Wow look great, not sure I have seen them before, should be a massive improvement over what you have now.

    They’re factory brakes that appear on a car you’re quite a fan of, the LSA CTSV.

    Didn’t buy concave wheels for nothing ;)

    VS, they certainly do come with brackets to mount them up properly. Full brembo kit for the price of a set of 6 pot front alcons haha.

    Those brakes will be awesome on the VZ. If you have the time make a how to thread, unless it is really straight forward.

    You giving any thought to maybe changing the colour of the callipers to stand out a little more against the white, or do you like the stealth/classy look?

    One of my favorite Senators ! How do you rate the BC coil overs, Do you have the BC ones that are re branded as OZ racing ones?

    No complaints from me mate, I just have them on their softest setting for daily use. If I go through some twisty stuff I’ll stiffen then up a bit. Only take 10 seconds.

    Recently did a trip away in it. 300ks each way. Got out at the end feeling fine. Not worn out etc from the harshness.

     

    I’m not sure if they’re rebranded or not mate. I think they’re made in the same factory as pedders just ‘re branded. And cheaper haha.

    Just be aware with 6 piston brakes they are usually handed. The piston diameters will be slightly different, the idea is as you hit the brakes the larger piston grips first then the others follow. There will be probably a direction arrow on the calipers, make sure you get it right :)

    I remember when the guy doing these kits was a sponsor on ls1 forum. Look a good kit for the money.

    I think these are left or right, you just have to change the line and bleed around so the bleed is on the top :)
