All sounds really good,  but as far as i can see, you still have not addressed the major flaw with this set-up and test run.  :smiley:


Well actually as a matter of fact, if it is a flaw its been taken care of    :wink:  .....We have another onto the test team! (sounds very grand doesnt it!  :laugh:)

Stokey's going to be looking at things a little more empirically and has graciously offered to help on the fitting/measuring/how-to side of things..Having had a staged ED30 on 312's then the S3 setup then probably one of the best performing Porsche BBK's available for track work (The 996TT Big Red Setup) its going to be a very welcome input.

DaveR's engineerings background will is going to be the ying to Joes Yang, QD was uber helpful in refining the 996TT setup and we're swapping measurement/ideas already with the holy grail being affordable ED30/GTI brakes commensurate with the 250-300BHP thats readily available - all I want Joe to do is enjoy the kit and try to break it at the ring with some track pads basically. Joe mentioned he may let others have a go in his car so hopefully even more input will be had.


So ladies and gents may I present tester number 2 - Quality Dave (was trying to find a guinea pig from one of the Disney Films in epaullettes but failed)


Soz Dave!  :wink:

This thread is so interesting! Most of it means totally nothing to me, though.

Joe mentioned he may let others have a go in his car so hopefully even more input will be had.

^^^ Queue the flood of offers to 'help', Joe.  :signLOL:

The brakes are on, and working well.  The pictures were taken and unfortunately Mr B has been called away with his Jet-Setting Job (South France in his jet -  :fighting:) and he has the SD card and a bust Lappy. 

He assures me Tues will see pics.  He wants to release the pics as part of this thread.

I will be fitting a set to my car post the forum pilgrimage to the Ring.

Bonjour from the rather glamourous reception area at the  Holiday Inn Saint Lurent du Var - sorry about the cockup chaps but I ran out with my camera as today mostly I will be enjoying the mediterranean sun watching this:

http://www.acm.mc/gpmh/gpmh_main.php?lng=en

Yep thats right......not quite sure which qualifying will be more interesting

The Pre 1975 Formula 1 or the 75-78 Formula 1 .......Decisions Decisions, not sure my credit card will take the strain......oh hang on....I'll be using the company one instead..... :evilgrin:

And before you all start thinking I live a charmed life - I've got two days in Doncaster next week..

Im sure I'll cope with it though, I'll just have to imagine I'm back in Monaco which I will be from the 14th through to the 17th of May.....wonder what could I could find to watch that weekend 

 :evilgrin:  :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

Insults welcome and expertly dodged or brushed off  :booty: :booty: :booty: :booty:

Re: NQS BBK - A Not Quite So Big Brake Kit.....They're on with PICS
« Reply #39 on: May 03, 2010, 09:14:41 PM »

Ok so it all fits, brakes went on and lets just say seem to be working and Joes Happy

Dave at ADS took the chance to rebleed the brakes today and took these pics I'm having some major IT issues at the mo, the more I think about this the more I get revved up, the difficult bit of any brake conversion is the carriers and the geometry needs to be bang on with these as the cayman only uses a 24mm thick disc and the 312 is 25mm, but it all works.

We've gotten over the first hump and proven the pedal which is reported as very good, they seem to be bedding in nicely, next hump is the ring trip where hopefully they'll get a work out with some track pads, it'll also be a chance to try some different wheels over them, then Dave R's set'll will go on and we can get a comparison to the setups thats Dave has already experienced on the target car which is the ED30

Calipers & Hoses & Bolts £200

Two calipers with used pads/fitting kits and a sensor already in like this £280 delivered
