Default Re: BA-FG Monoblock 4 Pot Brake Upgrade

Hi again Brett,

Hope you don't mind another suggestion? I've just noticed the new VE SS has optional 345 by 30 mm brakes so there might be a market for a rotor upgrade here too - I imagine a curved vane rotor would lead to better cooling? Possibly the one outer could be adapted to different bells for the FG and VF with rotor/bell only for VF, dogbone also for FG. Smaller project than the full setup but possibly bigger uptake since cheaper end product. Hope you don't mind, just like the idea of an Aust Business getting some extra product lines :-)

Regards,

Matt

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the idea's. We are working hard to expand our range of brakes and just finished installing a new design for our Hyundai iload track support van. We will be able to now make damper valving changes at the track for our sponsored race cars and customer vehicles.
Below is our 355mm front brake upgrade for our van. Some new things now in development for the Ford brake and dampers so stay tuned!!

Cheers
Brett

Hey perchyboy,
We are working on three things for the Ford but mum is the word until we finish the development, which is a while off yet mate. Very exciting though:-)

Cheers
Brett

I'll be back down in December again, hopefully without any damage this time. Happy to 'test' some products for you, they will get plenty of km's....

Would be great to catch up again!! I may have some bit for you to try and get some Km's on them for feedback. Will see how it pans out in December. We just fittied 355 rotors to the Shockworks R33 track car and wow. A lot more brake work this year:-)
Cheers

How does your brake kit compare to other aftermarket 6 pot kits or even oe 4 pot or 6pot brembos. Im looking for a kit to take the abuse of track days and give consistent pedal feel.

I've had the Shockworks 4 pot front brake kit in for almost 2 years now....

The original rotors have done 3 track days....have been through 4 sets of pads, the rotors as far as I'm concerned are indestructible!

I can highly recommend them!!

Hey mate, heaps earlier in the thread you had a photo of the shockworks setup behind what look like 19" Silver Argents. Are they just the stock rims you'd also find on the BF?

Hi JGP,
