    When you fitted the 4 pot calipers, did you notice any increase in brake pedal travel?

    hi m8

    no, in fact i gt the opposite

    historically my VR has never had the best feeling brake pedal - it always felt like you had to pump it to get a good feeling under foot

    the ABS has never been quite right & i had quite a few lock ups from the OE brake setup. i had previously tried EBC USR discs & green stuff pads & though they seemed to stop any locks in heavy braking i wouldnt say they stopped me any better than OE discs/pads. i did get a much better disc/pad life than OE

    now with the HiSpec's it feels like you have access to a much greater stopping power virtually as soon as you hit the pedal - just a small travel & they let you know they can & will stop you hard & fast. press that pedal hard & you need to hold the steering wheel tight else you will head butt the screen lol
