Hi,

After a few weeks of trying to find discs that will suit my setup, I gave up and decided to make some myself!  Im looking at setting up a factory in China soon, so should be able to take orders within the next month Laughing Laughing

Now I can forsee a few negative comments, but I really believe once a few problems have been 'plained' out, I think its going to be a very cheap upgrade  Very Happy   All in all its cost bugger all  cheers

The disc i a copy of a err, dont know if i want to actually say/type this word, Astra VXR 321mm disc Mad

But it will work based on the ply replica, could be arsed buying a disc to find out it wouldnt work, it will need the stud holes drilling out, and i'll have to machine a ring to fit in the center of the disc to reduce hole from 70mm to 61, but hopefully im onto a winner on this one Smile

Just need to fab a bracket to fix caliper to hub, will only do that when I get an actual metal disc!

Meant to say the caliper is a 4 pot from a Clio, could use a megane or any radial mount caliper, got the clio ones as they were cheap.
