Why would we NOT want the 350mm rotors to ensure full pad coverage? I don’t like the idea of the 330mm and the pads on the edge and it looking like too small of a rotor for the caliper
I know its a fairly old thread but have some questions.they bolted up , but i had to get wheel spacer to clear my rims(18" RPF1s) i'm using 25 mm but i believe 20 mm would have worked. Now i have slight tire exposure, but not a lot. I will probably swap out to the 20mm down the road.
These breaks Work!!! did a 250Km/h pull and they worked great. What this car should have came with to begin with
Now time to address the rears. Aside from the evo, anything else? The mk4 rears i heard work too?
When I search that pn all that comes up is 300mm listings so I would say that it will not work unless you are ok with pad overhang.I know its a fairly old thread but have some questions.
What offset are your RPF1s without the spacer? I'm looking at doing this mod but don't want to if the wheels I want won't clear.
Also has anyone tried this rotor MB 4474210012? Apparently fits but have yet to find a thread on it. Someone posted on facebook about it being an option. Comes on the 2018 MB Metris Van. Can get pretty cheap on rockauto. Claims to not need washers which I assume would help with wheel clearance?
Any updates to other possible parts to use? I'd like to collect it all and store on my site because doing so on a forum or on facebook will get buried in the comments with corrections or possible other solutions.
Why dont you do it and let everyone know what needs to be done. Be the change you want in this world instead of waiting around for other people to do it.IM being told the reason why MK4 guys don't use the Evo upgrade is that the bolts used in the MK4(i believe the same for MK3) is M12 vs M10, and you only get to tighten the setup by the bracket and there will be wiggle with the actual bolt, so they passe don it. Apparently the bracket has no extra material to be bored to M12.
Mk3 guys who have done the evo 8 rear upgrades, can you chime in?
Also, anyone here who has successfully put MK4 rear brakes in the MK3? I find random threads with no real step by step, or detailed explanation of the swap. Someone near me claims they did it with no modifications at all, but i read that the surface area of the pads won't cover all of the rotor do to alignment and so on.
a nice step by step write up for the mk4s like in here for the Mercedes and Evo would be appreciated.
You're the same goof who trolled my last post, and i thought my reply slapped manners in you, clearly it didn't.Why dont you do it and let everyone know what needs to be done. Be the change you want in this world instead of waiting around for other people to do it.
Everyone wants all these cool custom and great ways to do things but no one wants to put in the work to get them done and sorted.
I don't see any wiggle when bolting the brake caliper to the spindle...if the bolt is tightened properly the only flex you'll get is in the aluminum brake caliper itself (aka not much at all, nothing you can feel or change by hand).
Literally have no idea what you're talking about, some lasting impression you made slapping manners into me...You're the same goof who trolled my last post, and i thought my reply slapped manners in you, clearly it didn't.
I took initiative blindly trusting the OP in this post
And lost coin doing that. Don't be that guy, and help instead of trying to bring someone down, especially when you're in the wrong.
I did my due diligence by searching for the MK4 upgrade and found vague references with no actual write ups. I'm not about to invest in a setup that may not actually work, Hence FORUMS and the knowledgeable people(not applicable to people like you).
