Endless Racing for me it is.

Can't fault them, great stopping power and good bite/pressure point.

I'm on standard R32 GTR brakes. They work fine for me. Do a couple of track days a year and they haven't overheated on that so at current they do everything I need whilst maintaining a low unsprung mass.

my standard r32 gtr brakes were shite. but when i put the car in for its last mot i got a brake pipe replaced and the brakes got bleed and they are pretty good now. any one with shite r32 brakes should definatley try bleeding there brakes first. before upgrading them

Got any pictures? I have been interesting in this set-up for a while. I suspect the best VFM upgrade

I’m just in the process of upgrading the R33 AP Racing 6/4 pots to full carbon ceramics.

Hopefully a new found confidence in the brakes...

I've currently got 20 year old AP CP5555 6 pots on the front, standard brembo's on the rear.

Looking at servicing them and the fronts alone with new discs, pads, seals, pistons. nipples & paint etc. Is in the region of buying a new brake kit!

Obviously not AP's, but Ksport and similar.

Refresh 20 year old calipers or replace with a new alternative.....
