Stick with the 2.0l brakes would be my suggestion.Problem solved, I have a complete 2l setup on its way...
Although I'll probably still be chasing a set of "small" uprights for the GTV6 calipers later...
The car is a 66 GT Veloce
But a 105 is somewhere around 200kg lighter than the GTV6? I remember the change ride/feel in my 116 GTV when I converted t narrowed GTV6 Brembos, the reduction in unsprung weight was the main thing...Stick with the 2.0l brakes would be my suggestion.
The pad size is the same as the V6, but they are steel and although heavy do not flex - which is more than I can say for the brembos on mine.... I'd be a very happy camper if I could get my V6 to stop as well as the 105.
Yeah, its something like 5+kg a side (maybe 7kg compared to the Big ATEs?)... I sure noticed it when I did the swap on my old Alfetta GTV.yep, and 200 kilos is an f'ing lot too.
I had a guest drive in the old man's group N 2.0 105 at the supersprint state championships and I could brake sooo much later in that compared to my GTV6 - guess what, it weighs 1050, the V6 weighs 1250. Weight is the enemy of speed!
To get V6 braking anything like that is going to need bigger discs, better calipers, a pedal box, .... lots of money. Lap times weren't that far off though (mmm, V6 power).
Anyway, it may be worth it for the unsprung - how much diff is there? Couple of kilos total? Cost a bomb to save that via wheels.
Its still under coinstruction, currently waiting on me to put the front suspension back together, install a rooflining, build the new motor and exhaust... lol.Would love to see your Falcon some time - where do you race it?
We have a GTR XU1 race car in the family so are partial to historic racing cars (not just Alfas!).
