BRAKE DISCS SOLID / VENTED ??

Post by Edward » Wed Aug 03, 2005 2:48 pm

Hello

I just bought some vented discs for my 1990 turbo. Will these fit ? The man who sold them to me said so, but he seemed a bit cavalier...

I think it currently has solid. Does this matter ?

Someone please help ??? :(

no you can't use vented discs if you have a 480 with solid discs already fitted as the capilers don't fit

my 90 turbo has solid discs so i think your out of luck.

best way to check is pop off a front wheel and look at the disc thats on it, that will tell you for sure!!

The first ones were in 92...the move to atlas was to make room for the vented goodness.

I have all the parts for a conversion however :S
