    hi guys,as some of you know that I've sold my ATR brake kit ( hopefuly you'll enjoy them intruder :Thumbup:) and instead I've put ATS brakes.Pads and calipers are slightly bigger and brake discs are 320mm x 32mm instead of OEM 7 gen discs 300mm x 25mm brakes are still bedding, but what I can say is that difference between them and ATR is same as between OEM and ATR or even better, so far so good ;-)



    Fitted :Smile: Black Diamond 12 Grooved with EBC green stuff

    What did you do with the original splash guard - modify or remove it?

    First car with the 8th Generation dual piston calipers I don't think the disc are 320 they are bigger , so the splash guard has no interference then?


    The 2.4 & ATS Disc Specifications is 343mm stock disc . The Manufacturer is Dainichi Can Co LTD Japan Weight each disc is 10.6 KG

    Length (mm) 311

    thats a bit weird measurement as when something is round they should provide diameter not length and width as they are the same, well they should ;-), but according to that what you just posted there is 3mm difference between length and width on ATS and 2.4 discs hmm square ?on 2.0 and 2.2 is ok,also height? well there supposed to be a thickens unless I don't understand something :Unknown:

    At the time when I was discussing this upgrade in a previous thread I looked at the price of new 8th Generation discs and I remember seeing some Type-S discs with a 343mm diameter. :Unknown:

    I take it you just bend the original splash guards back then to accommodate the new bigger discs? Did you also change you brake lines to 8th Generation ones also?

    I was hoping to do this upgrade but I couldn't find a pair of callipers in time as the brake fade was becoming dangerous.

    that's weird,as I'm pretty sure that TypeS have 320mm and when I was looking for new discs for myself I found only 320mm and never came across that size 343mm, anyway I'm not sure how they should be fitted to that calipers :Unknown:, I bended splash guard a bit, but other then that there was no modifications, I used my brake lines as I have already steel braided lines so there was no point toi change it and new calipers didn't require that.
