if you are doing all the hard work today on finding the cheapest AP kit, would be interesting to post up here as this is a kit most of us think about changing to and there does seem to be some differing prices around.
If not, at least PM me with the cheapest you found as I do want some for my car.
I'm sure guys that there was some discusion on these before with prices as well . Do a search or meybe Peter E can get them cheaper for you guys especilly if you buy 2 sets. DO throw away those pads that come with them and buy either DS2500 or Mines pads (c.£650) .I believe Shin has a set available .
I called Demon tweeks, 01978 664466 who quoted £2037 inc vat, 6pot front 4 pot rear kit for the R34, seven days (don't keep in stock), I was interested to know the price, as this is the one of the sets, I could go for on mine just see if the discs are large enough they are always good for a ball park figure, sometimes they even turn out to be the cheapest.
AP 6 front and AP 4 rears are very possible. I have seen 2 R34 with this set up and the JUN R33 last week. It also had the optional brake-bias adjuster in the car. Here is a pic of the rear wheel/brake combination. Seemed to stop pretty well:smokin:
The more I think about it, the more i think that price is for he fronts only, I asked for the whole kit, but that's too cheap, especially for Demon.
Yep, I was right, just called them back, that is the kit for front only, even though i asked for both,(muppets have selective hearing), so it really isn't that cheap £1733+vat=£2037, middlehurst definitley the best option. He now thinks no one does a rear brake kit (hmmmmm ) Funny that [email protected] would do the 4 pot Ap rear brakes then. I wonder who is right? Not.
I can sell you the front kits for £1448.65 plus delivery and VAT. If you want me to find out delivery times please let me know and I'll find out tomorrow for you. If I can get a group order of 5 going I can do them for £1372.41 plus delivery and VAT.
The last kits I had in for the Supra came with carbon metallic Performance Friction pads. Personally I wouldn't use them, I fit Porterfield R4S(street) pads for road use and R4 (race) pads for when I do track days, these pads are the daddies and I'm the UK dealer for them. I personally wouldn't use anything else on the track or road and I've tested quite a few over the last couple of years on my Supra whicih is pretty similar in terms of power and weight.
