Anybody got any experience with these kits at all? I've posted a thread here

http://www.fiatcoupeclub.org/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=962096#Post962096


To poll for interest. But I thought we could have any technical discussions (or slating sessions) in here.

The calipers are different (6 pot vs D2/K-sport 8 pots) - although they might well be made by the same people.

Just for info I didn't find the D2 pads (or sport pads as they call it) very good at all. I've since upgraded to mintex DS2500 and they are much much better.

XYZ should now the replacement pad part numbers but I can dig them out if you need them.

Put your claws away Matt you might rip your pretty pollys again.

And anyway it's not the mass that counts it's the balls to brake later and harder than everyone else so it might well be playing right into my fat hands, that's fat stubby little hands.

For anyone that cares, I've now purchased and fitted these brakes.

http://s50.photobucket.com/albums/f312/bryce_matthew/XYZ/

So far, so good. Ditched the XYZ pads and fitted Carbotech XP8's - massive improvement over standard. Round Spa, didn't experience any fade or problems able to brake nice and late into the corners. Bite and feel is very good.

I like the discs, with the 'floating' centre section, guess it helps with cooling.....

...is this style available for the stanadard size brembos?....

It's a two piece type disc, usually with alloy central bell (for reduced unsprung weight and better cooling), there are normal and "floating" (as in bikes) type ones. When consumed, you change only the outer part... quite expensive nevertheless!!!

check the link, to get the idea about prices

Very nice Matt, I noticed a lot of the French Coupes at Spa were running bigger front brakes.
