SL434's are on my shopping list, but need to get rid of some others sets of OZ wheels first to make space.

 

The setup with Megane calipers also has the advantage of using discs and pads that are readily available everywhere. 

It's also the downside. The 302mm discs are 7,5kg each... 

 

@Peter how much does your rotor and hat weigh?

Not thought of that. 7.5kg is pretty heavy

I ended up having to give up some offset. I hadn't considered how close the rotor would be to the new control arm. It would be easy with a standard pin arrangement. Luckily the 8" wheels still fit without a spacer but not C5 wheels that we're going to use for wets.

And bingo. Awesome brakes. They performed flawlessly at their first race meeting yesterday.
