Balances up big front discs
Rear Big Brakes 280 mm black diamond discs and pads sold with beautifully engineered red anodised aluminium caliper spacers. Work well behind AP racing 304mm 4pot front discs. Reason in my experience is that the AP 4 pot brakes are strong enough to create front stopping bias while car centre of gravity is further back. Straight line braking is fine but hard braking into a gentle curve seems to understeer while very hard braking into a tight curve induces slight oversteer. The MS big rear brakes tend to even the balance with more neutral effect of braking on steering. Look great if outer face of rear caliper is painted red to match AP 4 pots. Drilled discs look a bit odd if fronts arenít- if so ask for non drilled/grooved.
Perfect quality kit
The diameter of the front discs has been increased on the 160 hp versions. It was illogical to keep the rear discs at the same diameter, especially since with the 50/50 weight distribution, the rear brakes participate efficiently in the braking. With this perfect quality kit, this design error is corrected and the handbrake is much more efficient.
2005 MGTF
2005 MG TF I have recently had my car virtually rebuilt by MG Obsession. Both subframes replaced to powder coated ones, all bushes replaced, brake lines enough to say everything that was required was replaced. At the same time one of Mike's S/S Manifold & Exhaust System along with his re-designed TF suspension system & big rear brake kit. Having well over 40 years of extensively modifying cars his attitude is second to none & the modifications have all worked with total success & my expectations have been well surpassed. I now believe to have almost a brand new car that drives better than ever & is a lot more responsive & the handling is almost to good to be true amazing results!! In my opinion money very well spent & an awful lot of Smiles Per Mile. Mike is a true professional & does not compromise on quality, one the best people I have come across while modifying cars, I would not hesitate to recommend his products & service.
