Good Vented Discs + Decent pads on a budget!

Post by reynolds_p1 » Wed Aug 03, 2005 10:12 am

Can anyone recommend a good disc and pad combo, preferably vented discs as i seem to get rather alarming brake-fade if they're err, a tad.. hot

do the standard vented set ups from any other cars fit?

needs to be as cheap as poss!

Any suggestions appreciated!

Cheers, Adam

on reading t'other post i will need solid discs as the ones on currently are solid (although its a '92 with the atlas wheels) so they would probably be better drilled or grooved to get a bit of cooling in there.. Any suggestions people? get the drill out?! :lol:
