I've given the surface rust a quick brush off they arent pitted, they arent used either as i thought they were but they are new discs.

There solid not vented discs, any good to anyone?

Drill holes reduce mass, lower brake temperatures and fade

Well I tell you what, since a pair of new standard discs can be found on ebay from time to time for a tenner then I'll offer you a tenner. That's unless you want them Mark?

it's supposed to stop the pads from glazing. however, blind holes are better than drilled through holes as more strength is retained in the disc and cracks are less easily formed between the holes.

Brembo site


Why use drilled or slotted discs?
Drilling or slotting discs aids the disc in several ways:

* The edges of the slots or holes continuously clean and refresh the pad surface as well as providing increased brake "bite". Additionally, they prevent gasses from collecting between the pad and disc interface.
* The disc is lightened, thereby decreasing its rotational inertia.
* Improved ventilation increases the disc's ability to shed heat, resulting in cooler operating temperatures


What are the advantages of drilled and slotted discs?
The main advantages of drilled and slotted discs are the same: increased brake "bite", and a continuous refreshing of the brake pad surface. Drilled discs have the additional advantage of being lighter and running cooler. However, there are certain pad materials that should not be used with a drilled disc.

You do realise 'Opel Charlie' that we've let you back on now and that you didn't have to register with a new ID?

You only had a 2 week posting ban!

Well I didn't bother to check every new user to make sure it wasn't you if thats what you mean! I like the way you went to the extent of registering for a whole new email account.

Anyway, thankyou for bringing my shortcomings as a moderator to my attention - I'll be sure to ban your IP address as well next time :wink: :lol:

Yer still a load of scummy blokes



:lol:


While i've been away i took the kadett off the road and bought a TD sierra off ebay £111 cant go wrong. Had some fun with it put a bleed valve on it for a laugh, its still holding 22psi without an intercooler lol.
Looking at buying a heat exchanger to run veggie see if i can get it to work.

I took the engine out of the kadett yesterday, i did think someone might want the engine but i didnt have anywhere to put it so took it to the dump.

Got a 1.8i and rebuilt manta a axle for the car, i'll have some manta seats for sale soon with modded subfames from my car if anyone wants them for £10
