Brad I've looked into it mate. The upgrades I'm going to do are theDBA slotted rotors and bedix ultimate pads combination. That's about as far as you can go really. If you want to upgrade to a larger caliper (twin piston) you will need a spindle that will support it, and I'm not sure but I think a different lower control arm and master cylinder. Alot of fcuking around and alot of expenses. That's why im just going with the above mentioned DBA slotted and Bendix ultimates.
On a similar topic I was just wondering if anyone knows about the VT upgrade on commodores. I hear it's quite simple and relatively cheap to do a twin piston (VT Caliper) upgrade to any commodre VN-VS. What's different about their set up that makes it so much easier to do?
