interesting, but with the retaining pin removed does that spring clip slot out?

I just got mine delivered this week after cursing the strength of the GT3 retaining spring, the Carrera was so easy.

Danny, it's $65 delivered to a UK address and comes in a handy storage tube, give Fred @ traqjunk an email, he was very helpful. I haven't tried it yet but all write ups on Rennlist are positive

It's the notches on the pin that make it worse, the Carrera pin was smooth, plus there's less 'give' with the GT3 spring to allow movement, you need strong thumbs...

I take it that you're sticking on a new set prior to Iberia ?

need to get the wheels off and have a proper look. From the outside there seems plenty of meat left on the front, rears need swapping but I have an OE set of pads ready. I may just take some spare front pads with me.

Have you looked into the steels option?

..Yup, with the upcoming Iberian costs (+ wife's compensation package),
new tyres, new steels too ?
i'd be looking for probably either a lottery ticket payout or ''doing a bank''
...just joking Cop
The cost of new steels (although a huge saving over new ceramics)
is still a whole lot of cash....if I was keeping the car longterm I wouldn't be
so hesitant. Just have a feeling that by mid summer next year i'll be
hunting for another car (RS 4.0).
For now, i'll get some new replacement pads fitted whilst keeping a
watchful eye on disc wear. Grin
I'm also going to get some advice from the mothership (ie, on this
particular generation of ceramic disc, what's the formula for pad changes
to disc replacement)....and yes...''it all depends on how hard you are on
the brakes''...''dependant on what tracks you're driving...'' etc..lol Grin

I may be interested. Have you got a group buy price yet. If not it will just go on the essential expenditure list and be used by the wife when she has a rant about the money I waste on cars Hand

I hate you.



Never sit next to me again when we are out!
(unless it's in the drivers seat giving me a PAX lap)
