JMR Rear brake upgrade

Recommended Posts

Right then gentlemen (and any ladies of course) I've just had a lengthy chat with John at JMR about his rear brake upgrade kit and he would be happy to do a group buy for us.

 

I don't have any costings as yet, this is just a feeler, but if you'd be interested in this please add your name below and once we get a rough idea on numbers, we can go from there with regards prices etc but what I will say is - I'm fairly confident this will be cheaper than the importing a kit from the US

 

Cheers

From what I understand 16" is the minimum wheel size Bryan but I'd need to double check that with John.

 

Odub - it's a 280 x 22mm rear brake setup. The kit includes hubs, hub adapters and bearings. From there though you can spec it pretty much as high or low spec as you want. You will need calipers from R32 Golf, TT Quattro or I think Skoda VRS, carriers, hoses and of course discs. John can supply all of these parts or you can source them yourself. He said the discs are available solid, cross drilled or even as a bell and rotor setup if required. This is the kit fitted to Johns own 16v Turbo (obviously with bells and rotors)

You can't back out now man - you commented = you're in! :lol:

 

This thread is purely to gauge interest Matty - there's no commitment mate. Just imagine how gutted you'd be if we all ended up with awesome rear brakes for £99 and you missed out? :lol:

Interested, depending on price.

I presume the kit would swap out our ****e rear bearings for the Mk4 Golf type?

Cool - it's just a feeler just to gauge interest. I'll add you to the list and when we start to get a rough idea of numbers we can get some prices and go from there :) I'm 99% certain it uses cartridge bearings instead of taper bearings

 

Is John selling it as a kit ?

Or will it need fitting from the great man himself ?

 

Pretty sure it will be a DIY able job but I reckon John would probably be more than happy to fit it for those that require it.

 

I've PMd John and let him know about this thread so hopefully he will give it the once over and give a bit of input.

I've just been paid today and already the disposable part of my income is dwindling fast, insurance, tax and MOT already. Not to mention bloody school uniforms!

 

But for a good price i'll always do my damndest to scrape the cash together lol. And i'd love to lose the crappy rear bearings.

I know the feeling Chris! My credit card is just going up and up! Who wants to be buying school uniforms when there's car stuff to be bought? :lol:

 

EJ - I'm going to be selling my TT 312s very shortly if you're interested?
