    With something that is usually over 20/25kg its usually a he'll of a lot cheaper to split into 2 or 3 parcels under this weight

    On the money! the weigh more or less 40kgs which is crazy weight!

    The entire 312mm set up which came on your car weighs around 26kgs.

    The big brake set up i had on my old Bora weighed 19kgs

    so you don't just get better braking you save around 10/20kg's in unsprung weight - which should knock at least 3 secs off your 1/4 mile time lol
