Last week, during one of my many visits to Courtenay Jon insisted that I look at his Astra VXR and tell him what was different. At first I thought it was the fact it was dirty, those who know Jon would understand, but no, it was the front brakes, take a look…..
Jon's is the 3rd car to get the kit, the others being the Sprint car and the Blue development / Dougie’s car. Jon has got a set to give 888 some additional development feed back in an alternative road environment.
The kit is a 4 pot calliper which is available in red or blue, choosing blue means you don’t need to repaint your rear VXR callipers – something Jon worked out afterwards, plus the 343mm discs/bells.
The kit is very high quality and the one thing the photo does not show is the bracket that mounts the calliper to the suspension leg. Often it’s this bracket that lets such kits down, but this one is superb and an exact fit as is the rest of the kit.
How much, well if you have to ask………but it’s comparable to similar kits, but this time you know it will fit!
