Duct pipe and shrouds for the discs, I can dig it out and photo if interested, not sure how I'd get it to you in time though, you have to drill some holes iirc
Kit also has intake cones that fit in the fog lamp hole, and instructions...

Aby to uwzględnić, planuję przenieść standardowe przednie zaciski do tyłu z klockami RC6.

 

Pomimo nowiutkiego płynu RBF660, nowiutkich klocków RC6, kilka dni temu wygotowałem płyn w Bedford. Hamuję bardzo późno i mocno. Zrobiłem to samo w moim ostatnim samochodzie torowym. Ostatnim był Renaultsport megane R26. Jedynym sposobem na wyleczenie tego było użycie płynu Endless RF650 z klockami RC6 na standardowych zaciskach Brembo.

 

W przyszłym miesiącu wyjeżdżam do Anglesea i nie chcę, żeby była to zmarnowana podróż, więc muszę napiąć hamulce.

I had the same problem with rbf660. Maybe it's problem with this fluid. the pedal crashed into the floor after two trackdays since the replacement ( two months). I am using ferodo dsuno and 288 disk.

Not to cast doubt on one's mechanical ability but it is quite easy to leave a bit of old boiled fluid in the calliper. You need to remove and invert the fronts as far as I recall to get it all out.

The new fluid was pressure fed so pretty sure all the old was out. It was a Gunson ezebleed or  similar? Where its attached to a low PSI car tyre and pushes the fluid through

 

Ivor, ive just re read my answer to you. It seemed snappy. It wasn't meant that way and i appreciate your input on my, sometimes stupid questions lol

If you haven't done it I'd remove the fronts and invert them. It's a faff but I've heard from a couple of people servicing brakes (my own included) that needed to do it. When my car went to MMG years ago it needed doing and took Liam ages to get them working. I also had a binding rear calliper that caused all manner of problems. Worth checking that isn't compounding the issue heat wise when on track. I think this winter I'll do a calliper refurb myself. Fully remove, refresh and then re-bleed the lot.

Just be aware that when you start playing with calliper sizes and ratios your pedal feel can go to sh*t.  

 

I know from personal experience as here http://www.vx220.org...hl=+soft +pedal

 

If you decided to rectify with the Cayenne master cylinder, here's what you need to do to it (also need to increase the length of the push rod on the pedal by about 8mm)....http://www.vx220.org.../?hl=conversion

Cheers for that. Its an interesting read and loads of good pointers. How do you find the braking now its all back together? Also, what front discs did you use?
