wheres this 55% off sale bro?

Also just for the record, i'v been running Fz201s in a medium at the track, they are ok, not as good as the a048's imo and they take ages to get upto temperature which isnt advisable for people doing short runs..

I'm defs going to try some z221's next..

if you can find your workshop manual it will step you through how to do it... or take them to brake mart or something? maybe they can rebuild them.

I did mine in the s15 with the old man, but the workshop manual for s15 pretty much steps ya through it.

I cant see yours being too different honeslty.

the rear handbrake assembly could be different I do not know? mine is an internal worm style arrangement that is a bit of a *milkshake* to get together the first time.

yeah, im not planning on doing anything with the rears.. I don't need to use the handbrake when on the track so i figured leave it stock for now.. If it creates issues with the bias i'll address it, but half of what i'v seen have people saying it doesnt affect it, and the other half say that it makes it easier to lock the rears when braking hard.. So we'll see how it goes..

Also, i finally received the s15 tail light loom so after lots of cutting and crimping and stuffing around I got the type x lights all fitted and wired up.. makes the car look about a thousand times better.. Man type x stuff is the pimp shit..

Alright thats it for now.. I'm trying to address this caliper situation, as the 33 ones i have apparently were leaking from the centre join, and i was under the impression that i could just rebuild them and solve that problem.. So we'll see what i can sort out from here..

Drive safe Marfs..

Oh yeah, also i got my personalised plates sorted out.. I'm clearly the maddest dog..

ah ok, yeah im talking about the bolt that holds the two halves of the calipers together, not the actual mounting bolts.. I believe that one of the 33 calipers i have was weeping from the centre join thing, so that's something im going to have to deal with..

Thanks for the help boys.. ;)

So on the weekend we had round 3 of the sprints.. I have successfully finished 3rd in class at the last two events so was hoping to do a bit better with my new tyres..

NEW TYRES!!! FZ-201's in a medium.. I had high hopes for these tyres, but they seem to take ages to get heat into them.. So all my fastest laps of the day were done on the 4th lap of the run, which is also the last lap of the run, meaning that I really only had 1 chance to get the lap right, and if I made a mistake then that was it..

So yeah, steadily worked away at it through the day.. My previous best was a 45.6 so i chipped away at that, and then on the 3rd run of the day, I broke into the 44's.. Here's a video of the run..


So yeah, knocked about 8 tenths of my personal best, but I'm still not really hitting the times I want to hit.. So the next thing on the list is to fit these s15 LCA's so i can get a bit more camber, and to sort out what I'm doing about brakes.. I'v had a set of z32 calipers sitting here for ever, but i'm thinking since I'm going 5 stud anyways that maybe I should just find some r33 calipers and run with those.. A mate of mine has a set that needs a rebuild, which I was planning on doing to whatever I was going to run anyways, so I might just run with that and see how it goes..

Does anyone have any experience rebuilding calipers? I'v had a look online, it doesnt look too hard.. I assume that I just buy the rebuild kit like this one?


But I dont see any of the actual bolts that hold the caliper together.. Is it ok to reuse them or do you chase new ones down from somewhere?

Anyways, thats it for now boys.. Hopefully I can sort my brakes out by the next meet and i will be able to get down into the 43's..
