Very happy with the front brakes on RS but how to improve rears?

What cost effective 'swap over' options are out there that will improve rear braking without going to a R180 rear setup?

GTB rear hubs and disks a strait swap?

Whats out there?

Nice.........I'll stick with the 4 pots up front but will look at the rears. So the BL/BP rear disk and caliper will just bolt strait up?................and that's all that's needed?

sweet.........so just a strait swap of the disc and caliper?

i assume the added braking power is thru a larger caliper and pad?

I think factory BC is 266mm rear, BG GTB, normal STi etc is 290mm rear. There's many options, there's 2 handbrake sizes, and venter or solid. BG GTB is a DF7328S, 290, 170mm hand brake, vented. I think the caliper is a bolt on for BC's

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!

You will need to swap hubs too, as the backing plates come up over the edge of the disc.

well you cant put bl hubs on a bc they are a completely different rear end. I would just remove the stone guard if there is an issue, i had to do that when i went to a brembo rear on the bl.

Why not a pair of adaptors, 290mm discs and 2 pots?

The adaptors will be the big expense.
