2010 Milano Red FN2 Type R GT #R22063
I KNEW IT. I saw that plate on their website feed and swore it was yours.So unfortunately it’s been flat bedded to Dynodaze for Richard to have the head off!
I've seen, that bolt issue is a proper nasty one fella, hopefully Richard can work his magic and extract it with minimal pain.View attachment 325468
Ahaha yeah Daz the devil is having heart surgery atm 😂.
I had all my brakes done too the same last Jan with a full refresh! I only went for red stuff pads but it makes a heck of a difference running a better brake setup! You’ll love yellows they bite so damn good.
Trust me, its not that I don't want to. In an ideal world I'd have two, one stock purist model and one full banzai barely road legal, like yours, but my pockets aren't deep enough for those shenanigans. Plus this was supposed to be for commuting, so dumping my mpg into the low teens isn't really a great idea eithergood on you mate, I was going to keep mine stock but I got the bug after going out in a rottrex super sport equipped FN
The Spoon stuff is allegedly the best performing setup you can have on standard sized pads and discs, I'd probably chat with Richard and Danny at DD about which suits your ultimate output, as obviously that monster you're assembling is a bit beyond most other use cases. I think the Yellowspeed kit is still a good choice, the bigger discs are unlikely to be a negative! I know what you mean about the colour, my refurbished callipers are going to be red, and my new pads are going to be yellow,,, I did enquire with Danny about silver (less of a clash I thought) but I'd have to wait for them to be painted, and he had a set of red on the shelf ready to reserve for me. It's a good job those Spoon calipers aren't any cheaper, I saw those and really toyed with the Idea, but knew it would be the step I couldn't take back and I'd end up doing more. Ultimately, whichever you end up being advised to get, it's going to outperform the standard brakes (even with better pads) and keep you a little bit safer in that road-going missile.Spoon monoblocks already got my eyes firmly on them 😂
Be good if spoon blue wasn’t the only colour they came in though my brand new rears are red.
I think the spoon ones use the standard disk and pad too?
for less money these are definitely top of my list unless anyone has any bad reviews on them.
bigger (included with the kit) rotors and pads, 6 piston vs spoons 4.
Red in colour and a bit cheaper.
I mean I can see them likely being overkill on an N/A car, but on a 350+ bhp booster..
No worries! I'm pretty sure Pitlane took some too, I'll ask her to post them too. I looked at doing the same with my alloys too, but I don't have the free funds to cover that too (Also Keith is mega busy so couldn't have fitted me in at such short notice).Cheers man! Not seen her in about two weeks now really looking forward to getting it back, Uncle Keith is refreshing the wheels whist it’s in.
thanks for the picture 🤩
Fingers crossed for you buddy, I know how much you're looking forward to this! To be fair I think we all are.I’ll call them in the morn for sure. Looked on their site and they haven’t reported any delays (unless they have on Facebook but I’m not in there)
they are job advertising for a fabricator though so I wonder if they are short staffed/stacked out with work.
Ah man, that sucks. Given they must have known before you rang, I'm a bit disappointed they couldn't have given you a heads up sooner, especially as like you say it means hoping you can get rebook in a sensible time frame for the fitting and remap.So spoke to TTS, they are super behind and it will be another two weeks before my kits ready.
Got to now rebook my fitting and mapping appointment ontop. Absolute torture 😂😂
Ah dude, thats painful. I assume it's Dynodaze you're hoping to be booked at for the fitting? As much as this last minute turn of events is really disappointing for you, try and take heart from the fact your very lovely car is still roadworthy in its current state. Let's be honest, it's not exactly slow either in its current form!Yeah I know and the suckiest part is the tuner/fitter have requested for me to book in once my kits arrived.
I totally get that as they have a slot now short notice to fill next week. But it could be end of sept/October before I get it fitted 😭😭😭
