braided brake lines made by Goodridge

Post by martinholmesuk » Thu Nov 03, 2005 11:26 am

I found some braided brake lines made by Goodridge http://www.goodridge.net/appguides/UkCAR.pdf There pdf only has 480 TURBO (Non ABS) models, Don't these fit the ABS brake caliper?

I got those brakelines for my turbo without abs, and they will fit on caliperes that had ABS (I do not have ABS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I guess the pressure of the ABS is too big for those brakelines.
Goodridge sells them only for 480's WITHOUT ABS.

Well that would be a bit crap really, the idea of braided hoses is that they can take HIGHER pressures without bulging.

The voices in my head might not be real, but they have some pretty good ideas..

Maybe it would be crappy, but I do not know the pressure difference between 480's with and 480's without ABS.
If the difference is big I can understand, if it isn't ---- youre right Chris.

I /think/ that they were worried about the Mark II ABS system which ran some mahoosive pressure to the rear brakes I believe. <<hence scary HBOL warnings all over the shop>>
