    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
