You never know that could be a new Macon, the French love Morocco being an old French enclave and the sun is out most of the time.

GTA V6 gets my vote. Just a shame I haven't got 2K kicking around to spend.

If you can live with the rear handbrake then just the front kit will be a massive improvement over std.So looking at around £1200.That's a complete front set, incl lines,pads.
I run a bias valve on Ratty and the rears are dialled pretty much to bottom limit.Not running the reducer cylinder.

You can't take it with you..... and you wouldn't want HMRC to get it :D

Latest A610 kit fitted behind some Gotti....

WP_20180328_002[1].jpg




I've amended the description to fully detail kit build up as there seems to be some confusion of exactly what you get in the base package

4 pot Hi-Spec calipers all round.
310mm Wilwood rotors on A610 setup.( plain )
RATS' custom designed and manufactured rotor bells and mounting brackets.
Custom engraved or high temp decals to suit application.
All fixings
Brake pads ( std compound)
Flexi brake lines.

With the continuing problems with the rears on my A610 (now the handbrake levers are sticking and the brakes seem to drag occasionally), how about a rear-only set up and then the fronts when I have saved enough? Would the standard pressure limiter be enough to limit the braking on the rear or am I inviting trouble by upgrading the rears first? My dad did it on his E-type and the rears would lock up ahead of the fronts. Dangerous!
