    Big Brake Kit Groupbuy March 2013 GB

    Hi Guys

    Exciting times ahead.

    We have now changed supplier of our brake discs, over the past few years the prices for Brembo brake discs has been going up and up and as such my prices have been too We are now proud to announce that we have found a new supplier of brake discs, these discs are extremely high quality and I'm happy to put my name to them and put my life in the hands of them.

    We are now able to get these discs cheaper than Brembo were supplying them to us for too, so we are passing the savings on to you.

    Another main benefit of these discs is that they are more flexible with how you want the discs to look, i.e. plain, grooved, or grooved and drilled.

    These are the options:-

    What do Big Brake Kits do?

    The main reasons for upgrading the brakes is quite simple, to be able to STOP. The brake kits found on the 200SX/Skyline were considered very good off the production line, and are still better than most modern car brakes (well average cars). The problem with them is that once you start asking more than what a factory car would ask then you start hitting problems, whether it's braking power overall or brake fade from pads of fluid boiling. As soon as you start increasing the power of your 200SX/Skyline or use your car on track you soon realise that the standard brakes won't keep up with your driving style.

    To remedy this I offer 2 types of front Big Brake kits:-

    The first kits are ones which utilise the standard S14/S14a/S15/300ZX or R33 GTS-T calipers and use a larger disc, the principal behind this is that the caliper is spaced further out and as such has a much greater braking force than the standard 280/296mm position. The other main benefit is that the larger discs dissipate heat quicker due to the larger surface area, as such reduces the chance of fade. I guess the third benefit is they look great behind bigger wheels rather than the brakes looking lost behind your 18's etc.

    The are what the kits look like (Disc styles vary)




    I also offer Wilwood brake kits which we at DB-Power build up all ready to fit onto your 200SX/Skyline/350Z

    These come with calipers, pads, discs, hoses and of course the fitting kit. The Wilwood calipers a light but very powerful caliper, the pistons are much larger than the pistons found on the 200SX/Skyline front calipers and you soon realise that when you need them most.



    There is a third kit while I'm at it, and that is the excellent 345mm kit I offer that use the Mitsubishi Evo 6-9 Brembo Calipers. This kit overall offers the best performance vs price out of all the kits I offer. Evo calipers can be found for around 150 the pair and when pieced with this kit it works out to around 450 for a brake kit which will suit 99% of SXOC'ers.




    The kits come with the following:-

    330mm & 345mm Kits using S14/S14a/S15/Z32 or R33 GTS-T - Discs, Adaptor Brackets, bolts and fitting instructions.
    330mm & 345mm Wilwood kits - Calipers (2), Discs, Pads, Braided Hoses, brackets and bolts
    345mm Kit using Evo calipers - Discs, Hoses, Adaptor Brackets, bolts and fitting instructions.

    Wheel Clearance

    330mm kits need about 380mm of clearance (17" wheels)
    345mm kits need about 400mm of clearance (18" wheels)

We have sold 100's of brake kits and we really know what we are doing in regards to your safety and product reliability.

    How Groupbuys work

    Groupbuys allow us to offer products to our customers cheaper because of two main reason, 1) It allows us more buying power with our supplier, as such we can pass the savings onto you the customer, 2) Financial commitment, instead of having stock sitting on our shelves which in turn cost us money, by selling an item via a groupbuy means that the product doesn't even get to our shelves.

    The way we offer a groupbuy is quite simple, we ask for a 20 deposit which in turn gets your name put on the list in post 2 on this thread. We then ask for the remaining of the balance inc shipping, at the end of the group buy date. Once payments are received we will then order the goods from the manufacturers/suppliers. Once the goods are received by DB-Power we will ship them as quick as we can, we won't dilly dally on this, after all they are your goods.

    Start Date:- 04/03/2013
    Finishes:- 31/03/2013
    Deposit:- 20 via paypal to sales@db-power.co.uk (Please add username and car type to payment)
    Full Payment on:- 01/04/2013

    Dan, any chance I could exchange the plain 345mm brembos I bought off you recently for a pair of 345mm grooved and dimpled, to match my 322mm rears.
    They are unfitted of course

    Also, guess who forgot to order some Z32 braided conversion hoses for the rear kit I got off you, so I'd need a set of those as well.

    Thanks matey.

    Have you got a pic of your wheels? as I can normally tell from a good pic if you have a hope or not.

    330mm Plain 235
    Larger DS2500 162 (sorry can't do any discount on them as Ferodo don't offer much )
