New B5 S4 owner with brake questions
First post here although some of you might know me/ know of me as I joined the ASN Nurburgring trip recently in the Volvo S40.
The "S4" isn't so much an S4 at the moment but basically a rolling shell project car.
Plans for this are rather different from the norm, although for now I'll keep them under my hat for now :)
Anyhow, on to the brakes...
My last "fast" car had billet KAD 6 pots, 330mm 2 piece discs with alu bells and they were awesome. Obviously, the car will be doing a fair amount of track work. I want to stick to 17's so have been looking at the biggest disc I can get away with - 345mm.
I just happen to have some 4 pot AP racing calipers (brand new in a box!) laying around so I'll get some brackets made to fit these for now, until some 6 pots come along.
Comparison shots with the KADs-
To keep things as cost effective as possible, I plan to use OEM 345mm one piece discs. What is the difference between the 8P S3 disc and B6/7 S4 disc? I'm correct in thinking the S3 is 5x112 and 345mm? How about bore and offset?
