MG MGF Technical - 'berts bits' discs ??
|Seen some brake discs on ebay - 100 quid for 2 x grooved & vented fronts & 2 x grooved rears.|
selling under the trade name "berts bits"
Has anyone any comments as to their performance, longevity etc.
Recc's on suitable pads would also be appreciated.
No experience, except that I learned many years ago........Buy cheap-Buy twice!
Be careful, brakes are not something you should be skimping on.
|If these are standard discs that have been machined, they may be okay, but as mentioned many times before, I really don't like the idea of crossed drilled discs on cars.|
|Thanks for the advice gent's, however a swift "google" sent me to the "performance Vauxhall" (ermm really?)BB where a reliable sounding gent by the name Chavtastic(!) expounds the merits of said discs - more importantly there is a link to the manufacturers website - www.brake-eng.com.|
Would appear a decent set up, I may give them a go.
Bob, the discs are only grooved, not cross drilled, or am I missing something?
|I have a set of brake-engineering discs on the rear of my F which seem to be fine, I bought the discs only and use green stuff pads with these.|
hope this helps.
|Gareth, if just grooved, then perfect :o)|
Bob - you're not Bob you're Rob! Sorry I got it wrong, but glad you knew who you are!!If it makes up for it I hate being called Gary, so I'll let you do just that - only once though.
|ROFL no worries! ;oD|
