goddam, that's exactly what I need!! 343mm rotors, so no fitment issues with 17" wheels? How hard was adapting the brakes to the R32? How much customization did you require, what rotors/pads did you go with, and did you stick with the stock master cylinder or use a Mercedes unit?

Sorry about all the questions, but that brake setup is what I've been dreaming of!

Toby,

If I recall correctly, wont most 355mm still fit under the 17in wheel?

For example I know that AP Racing says theirs will fit under the 17in rim. Same for Project Mu.

D2 Racing Brake Kit
Front: 8 Piston Caliper - 356mm 2 piece Brake Disk
Rear: 6 Piston Caliper - 356mm 2 piece Brake Disk

Good brake balance, and much cheaper then alot of other brake available.
The Street Pad that came with the kit works well when cold, not bad when hot, and zero squeel noise.

And the Purple looks different and COOL!

I can get hold of some water cooled front calipers good for track days, but banned from a lot of race series including F1 dont know why.

Brakes

Braided hoses
Stopper kit
D2 8 pot front with 330mm disc
D2 6 Pot rear with 330mm disc

Had to go with 330mm to be sure they fit under 17" wheels.


Oh - got to fit them now! Are they easy to do?

With 18" rims go for 355mm front discs. I would also consider fitting DBA 4000 series disc's to the rear with some upgraded calipers (Brembo from R33 GTR).
For Pads also consider Pagid Yellow ceramic's. Good on the road excellent on the track.

The BCNR33 runs AP Racing 343mm discs with 6 pots in the front and braided hoses all round. Also Castrol SRF in the system on this car.

I am very interested to hear on what you think of your D2 brakes after over a year of use???

Cheers
