Imagine the braking you would get from DBA slotted CRX 260mm rotors and CRX callipers :o

The crx callipers on my car take the same brake pads as honda legends :shock: , thats some seriously capable braking.

Henry wrote:Turbocab, T11 front discs are 230mm diameter vented. thickness new is 17mm. service limit is 15mm.

the discs on my t2 measure like 200mm as far as i can tell with the wheel still on.
i have a pair of discs that came with the car and they measure 230mm i have tried these against the ones on the car and they are a fair bit bigger.
what would i need to change to fit these bigger discs with a view to upgrading later to those dba ones?

Matt, if you click on the picture up the top it shows the part number for city AA as 191 sr and 191 sl this will be fine as a part number to order with.

alright cool thanks mate.
i was looking at those specks and then reviewing something that henry wrote earlier in the post.....he said that original t2 discs are 17 mm thick and their service limit is 15 mm.now the specks for the dba's say that they are 12mm with a limit of 10 mm if this is corect the calipers wont have a hope in hell of grabbing them i am guessing that this is a typo and your discs are a decent thickness ie 17 mm of so,please confirm.
cheers matty
