AP Racing 6 Pot S3 Conversion - Weights.
The guys at AP have finished the development of my S3 for the above kit which will marketed within the next month, I will be posting a full review with pics and initial thoughts once I collect the car on Thursday but for now here are some of the weights of OEM S3 kit Versus AP racing set up.(All weights were taken with pads etc included)
OEM Discs = 12 kg
AP Discs = 8.5kg
OEM Single Piston Calipers = 8.5kg
AP 6 Piston Calipers = 4.1kg
Total weight saving = 7.9KG
This is 'Upsprung' weight so subject to the usual calculation of each corner x 4, therefore a total saving of 63.2KG, Can anyone confirm this is the correct calculation ?
Either way a significant weight saving coupled with the promise of far superior performance.
Looking forward to picking the car up.
