    So what you after and what you running at mo? There's a few ways to go and kits to choice from but depends budget. I run a race kit on mine but price wise was about £1400....



    Friendly word of advice get a SMA (secret mans account) saves missis finding out if mine knew she'd loose it

    Wow they look great, can't stretch to that, I'm just running the standard 120 brakes as the engine is only just run in on about 5psi of boost at the minute, I have seen some spacer kit so you can run 300mm discs but the look like they are made of chocolate, is there kit maybe off a zs v6 that will go straight on. What you running with brakes like that

    The V6 ZS has the same brakes as the ZR 160 with good pads you would probably be ok to be honest thats all the ZR190 race cars run. Not running anything to special stage 3 n/a engine on throttle bodies but be using it for circuit racing in future most likely MSV trackday trophy. Might be worth checking out the brembodge brake kit they do on Rovertec thats a 4pot caliper from a 406 V6 and bigger discs thats not to much

    I've got a set of 120 calipers going onto my 105 (yes, I know it's the same but a vented disc)
    I'm on the hunt for a set of Dark Ice brackets to use the Mini Cooper S discs with the 120 calipers, but typically I got my calipers about a week after Dark Ice discontinued the brackets!
    If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence.
