    Turns out AP Racing UK haven’t got their kit ready yet this was from USA.

    I know Revo are due out with theirs soon. Forge have one out. Alcon will hopefully bring one out aswell.

    Ah ha!

    I spoke to Pete Collen a few weeks back and he said they had no plans to release a big break kit for the Mk3 RS. I know Pete from years back as they used my Mk1 as the dev car for the big front brake kit and i had the first set on my car 🙂 Hopefully they will release a front AND rear kit 🙂

    Yes I emailed Pete after reading about the US AP kit.

    Another avenue to try is Graham Goode Racing UK as they may have something in the pipe line 😉 I think they will make some brackets etc to make an existing kit fit the RS.

    Interesting. I see Wilwood do a front and rear kit for the ST but they said it wouldn’t fit the RS….I thought the set up was the same on both cars apart from larger front discs?

    They are released. £2400 for the front kit. I have been speaking to them to try and sell the products through the club.
    Fancy a set for the next track day?
