    Big brake help

    I'm upgrading my brakes to match the engine upgrade. I have the MG 4 pot calipers and all the fittings. Does anyone know the max brake disc width I can fit in these. I don't have a vernier gauge so I can't measure the old ones?

    You are referring to the Mg TF AP 4 pot calipers, right? If so i believe the disc size is 304mm. The 160 setup uses 282mm discs so its quite a big difference.

    Thats true problem is is the caliper fitted to the ZR still same distance away from hub etc and what disc are you going to run as im 99% sure the TF PCD is different so the disc wont fit the ZR hub as they used Metro stuff

    Fbaptista, I know the disc size is 305. But I was wondering if anyone knew the thickness of the gap between the pads. Is it 26mm or 28mm? Johndq, I have got to get discs custom cut for the zr.

    Cheers John. Will give them a ring and hopefully just take the calipers and hubs to them and let the magic begin

    The mgf/tf pcd is 4 x 98 so they are a different pcd to the zr

    Thought I would finally update this. Had them drilled to 4x100 and skimmed.
