confused Xr Brake Upgrades??

Hey everyone,

Wanting to know what people recommend for a good brake upgrade for ba xr's. My xr6t is getting a aps phs 2 kit fitted next month and i think i really need brakes first, the standanrd system is unexceptable. Any word from Brembo? dont really want to spend more than 3 grand on front and 2 on rears. any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

Try PWR, which is Paul Weel Racing, he has a XR6T ute which has massive 6 pot brembo's with 14.5 inch rotor's (I think). And they look awsome!!!!!!!!

Re: Xr Brake Upgrades??

Thanks guys, ive ordered some alcons with 4 pot calipers and 330mm rotors from Gavsport. I spoke to phill he reckons the alcons are a better option, one piece roters are better than the two piece im told.
