Even if my R32 is on winter nap and I didn't post in here for almost a month that doesn't mean I'm not active here or that nothing is going on behind the stage I love writing posts so don't be mad for a little longer talk.
Actually quite some things happened in last month imma show you the biggest one first.
Whoever is following this thread, knows that I am enroute to the final version of my R32. Making something unreachable a reality. Whoever knows me in person knows that I am an extremist. Obsessed with perfection and always going over the limit. And it is no different with my R32 and the upgrades that will follow. I know the process is going to take me a few years but hey no biggie!
Was just making my financial plan for the next year a week ago, but it didn't take more than a day before I ruined it hahaha (damn you german ebay!)
Soooo. Talking about brakes. The plan was to make custom front 390mm setup and figure something out with dual calliper rear brakes.
On November 13th (the day I actually celebrated 23th birthday) I was at work just doing regular job on CNC. When waiting the cutter to finish it's work I went on german ebay and just randomly typed in 400mm bremsen. You know 390 is huge. But it's not a 400. I always wanted 400!! But the price itself was making me turn away everytime!
These sets are rare. I mean you can get a new one for 3200+ € but that is damn pricey!
What I found was a set of 400mm Audi S8 / Lamborghini Aventador brakes!! Hear this out. Perfect condition, EBC Yellow pads and the discs from Ultimot! Complete set was on the car for only 5500 km!
The price. Well. It was set on 1830€ including posting to Slovenia. The seller was a super super nice guy, who actually owns a performance company in Germany and he has an Audi RS3 with over 700hp!!! We made a deal for total of 1650€. Don't know about your fellings but this set is damn cheap for me comapred to other sets!
So 4 days later the brakes arrived from Germany. Still cannot believe what I've done to be honest These things are huge!!
Turbo prep? All my friends are talking me into it but damn no!
I can't fit these just yet, because they don't fit under OZ Superleggeras, but not a problem, I already decided that my final go to wheel combo is going to be OZ Ultraleggeras in 19" size, under which the brakes are going to fit just right and tight
So I've decided to store these for some time. Took them apart, cleaned them quickly, organized bolts and everything. Going to build the car in stages and then put it all together when I have everything collected and ready.
Compared to 1,5L bottle of water. Pretty huge right?
Checked the discs. These were 38mm originally, now they are 37,6 mm. Will take me a lifetime to finish these haha
Shhhh get away brake dust!
Now some calliper porn
And everything packed and ready to be stored. Gonna finish them slowly.
Front brakes first then! Have yet to do:
- new braided custom front brake lines - in yellow
- getting the brakes resprayed in yellow pearl metallic
- still have to correct the fitting adapter because Audi wheel hub is a bit different but I have an easy fix for that
- getting them nice Lamorghini stickers.
Oh almost forgot. Something is happening with the rear brakes also! These are going to be completely custom designed by me, hang on, I'll reveal them as soon as they are ready
