:!: Oops ... actually, I modified the board so you CAN upload images directly from this interface!! I need to update the help docs since they refer to the standard release which does not support this capability.

In the 'Add an Attachment' box just beneath the posting text area, just browse to your image (on your local machine), hit 'Add attachment' and then submit.

Its as easy as this ....

What about the rear outboard setup? Any info on that? If you put SZ rotors and caliper spacers, it will squeeze the exhaust even more...

Praggias, Rear Outboard Brakes Etc

Post by junglejustice » Wed Dec 01, 2004 3:54 pm

Here are some pics of the 3 sets of Praggias that we just got in today! (Sorry about the crappy lighting!) The green-looking units are actuall blue like a heat-sink inside of your CPU and the yellow is quite gold.... (Ricers Unite!)

The reds are nice, but not this red - more that faded aluminium red.... I'll post the 2-pots and the silvers when they come in.

Any way, they are in stock with Group 2 Inc. and will fit as follows:

The 6 pot MAXI BLUE - (Fits between 295 & 305 mm / 28 mm rotor)
The 8 Pot MAXI Red - (Fits between 295 & 305 mm / 28 mm rotor)
The 8 Pot MAXI Gold (Fits between 310 & 325 mm / 28 mm rotor)

Pads to use are the same as on the MERCEDES BENZ SPRINTER 2 Tonner FRONTS in South Africa

Ferodo product number FDB/FCV 1043 (Or equivalent)

The pads supplied by Mercedes Benz S.A. is made by TEXTAR and is VERY HARD !!! Wonderfull to use on full race setup, but not for street. The TEXTAR pads are NOT kind on rotors, and needs a bit of heat to start working properly. The Ferodo product is good for Street & Track use. Mercedes S.A. tells us that the TEXTAR is the same product as used in the USA, but I'm not sure...

The pad is a very long unit, (160mm) and comes with anti rattle springs.

Barry,

Where's the rear caliper setup? Doesn't your Giulietta have outboard rears?

Well, the neat thing is....

Post by junglejustice » Fri Dec 03, 2004 9:16 am

The 6-pot MAXI (the blue ones that look green...) will fit a 295 to 305mm rotor and they will fit under a 16" rim...

The red 8-pot MAXI (red ones) will fit between 295 & 305 mm and the do require a 17"wheel!; same with the 8-pot MAXI (Gold coloured ones above - They'll fit between a 310 to 325 mm / 28 mm rotor and also need a 17" wheel...

The 4 pot that I will post soon fits 15 inch, but I don't know about 4 inch...

I know how to do the rear outboard conversion, but I don't have good picturs...

Hopefully Andrew will post some soon!
