    I am about to embark (if there's sufficient interest) in a 5 off GB manufacture of 2-piece AP Pattern Racing disks in 4x100 fitment.

    These have anodised aluminium CNC machined bells and AP Racing grooved brake disks, mounting hardware etc.

    Same type of disk as used by myself on the mad ibiza and these have been the only brake I have not managed to destroy in short time..
    Extremely high quality AP disks are chosen as they're proven to me to be 'up to the job'

    Prototype 1st off 304x28 kit has been running for some time on BenS1's car.
    These are a direct replacement for the regular Brembo disks on Mk3 Ibiza-R and my 4x100 Brembo kit.

    Price is going to be £450+vat & delivery for these.

    For track day users this is a superb upgrade in performance/longevity, lighter and far better cooling than one piece disks.

    GB qty of 5 peeps required to make this happen, otherwise price will be higher.

    If 'seriously' interested, please bung your name down here and email your contact details to me at bill@badger5.co.uk

    regards
    Bill
    :cheers:

    LOL, given up on the other suppliers then :(

    Yes, as previously mentioned, seriously interested.

    304mm eh? at least I won't have to manually machine that bl**dy ridge off every 5000 miles :)

    Dor.

    P.S. worth putting this in mk3 ibiza section too?

    LOL 304mm is the exact swept diameter. which is handy.
    other suppliers need to pick up the phone... I have a few suppliers on the go at the mo, but the disks are the spec I want and thats not going to change to save a few quid. quality has to be 100% and I can vouch for their durability from my own personal use on track. (slicks, 350bhp, Oulton Park etc... Awesome.. Radical jumps off the track in front when it saw me braking very late behind it.. LOL)

    Will you be doing these in 5 x 100, 323mm LCR fitment in the future if these are successful Bill?

    yes..
    Its in the works..
    May be a slightly larger diameter version too.. 325mm or even 330mm for peeps who want them. (would be supplied with suitable bits to adapt accordingly)

    Will use AP disks, so not going to be bargain basement type kit but I insist on using quality, pedigree rotors.

    (some cheapo kits just machine std disks off and adapt to make em bell mounted. You dont get race proven disks with proper cooling in these instances)

    Price will be slightly more for the larger disks..

    I'll post up another thread on this to gauge interest. We know LCR's "use" their disks heavily dont we.

    If you can confirm the model AP's you have I can confirm the bells for fitment.

    4 sets of AP's?

    Just checked one box... CP3580 - 67G8M

    Vdisc 304x28L 127x177.8d50

    I hope these are right ones lol

    I can get AP stuff quite cheap and have a stockpile of discs and 4 and 6 pots :rolleyes:

    Can you get an adaptor to mount a Cp5000 4 pot or 6 pot :thumbup:

    I can confirm that the kit that Bill is selling has worked extremely well so far on my IHI'd Ibiza. If i didn't have them already then I'd be putting my name down for some. :)

    Hi Bill,

    Yeah, not been on here for ages. Simply haven't had the time.

    Was working 15 hour days setting up my new company, and then I get a call from my old company asking if I want to do a one week contract for silly money..... I said yes, and one month later I'm still there, and trying to setup my own company at the same time!

    Lots going on SCN since I've been gone.... the JBS turbo kit looks interesting.

    Cheers
    Ben

    Yep sending a caliper is no problem, not sure whether to try and squeeze the 6 pots on the 304mm disc and have the larger pads or just stick with the 4 pots.....in theory the 6 pots should fit under the wheels as the physical size of the cailper is very very similar to the 4 pots
