3 laps at curborough wouldn't overheat stock pads.
So you were in my car?
3 laps, brief gap, 3 laps, brief gap, 3 laps, brief gap.........brake fade
any body getting a clicking noise off the ebc grooved and dimpled discs when braking and what is the bedding in milage on these discs
mintex pads n ebc discs
ordered myself a set EBC D1338 discs from brakes for you. so will be interesting to see what these perform like with the Mintex extreme pads i have also purchased. free next day delivery and way cheaper than seat!!! will let you all know what i think once fitted and bedded in!!
Brake discs front & rear
I am a little confussed to say the least over disc sizes for the LCR (Jan 2004 model) Anyone can tell me what size (mm) disc diameters should be for front and rear and also advise on brand suitability, also which pads would be recommended . many thanks, all advise welcome.
What is there to be confused about
British LCR's have always had 323mm up front with 256mm at back
searchy and all is revealed.
256mm vented rear
Ultimax disks grooved and good value, combined with ds2500 pads and you get superb stopping
Just an update, put 10,000 on this set up now, no problems at all, pads look as if there coming up to half worn which isn't bad for £23! I've been more than happy with this cheap set up and will happily repeat it when i need to.
My LCR also needs new disc and pads soon. Can you tell me if on the LCR has the EBC pads caused the disc to have lots of grooves as per the galfer ones?
sounds like EBC are getting better response from users interesting and it does look like Brakes4u have the best prices so i think i know which direction im going on my brake upgrade
Badger5 offers a price match to Brakes4u website
dunno about EBC pads, but most people go for the ferodo ds2500 pads
I have the DS2500 on EBC grooved and dimpled, and there awesome, just as good as stock brembo disks imo, done a trackday in them and there were no problems at all, they have'nt groved the disks like the OMP pads did to my originals...will buy them again for sure
lost count of the miles I've put on my std EBC discs now.... got to be 6-7k..... no problems at all
will definitely be using them again, and will probably pair them up woth some DS2500 pads from Bill
Do Tarox do a 323mil disc for an LCR?
Amyone tried them. I have a brembo gt kit on my s3 as the discs keep warping, had them skimmed, warped again! They are brembo drilled versions ...I am looking at alternatives to go with some ds2500s.
Just another update, have now covered 18,000 miles on this set up with no problems at all!! gonna need another set of pads soon but disks will go again!
S3 is too heavy when pounded..
get some ducting to those brakes..
2-piece otherwise req'd I think to shed the heat generated
DS3000's on S3's where LCR's are ok on DS2500's such is the weight factor
i went for the ebcs and ds2500 from you, bill and they seem ok on road so far.
ducting is a good idea too.
i'm sure my old s3 was suppose to weigh 1415kg while a lcr is 1400kg,so not a massive weight difference??
