Cooper s jcw ... brakes are ****

Hi everyone. I am looking at gaining a few more horsepower from the 192 firebreather.

but the brakes feel terrible!! and i really want some nice looking grooved disks..

can somebody please put me in the right direction of getting the right set of brakes and pads that will give me much better braking..

and also im feelign a bit cheeky i must say, can someone tell me where i would get 250 bhp from?

Chris

Have a look in the classified ads on all MINI forums (or ebay) for the Brembo 4 pots BMW MINI JCW BRAKE CALIPERS PADS DISCS FRONT REAR BREMBO JOHN COOPER WORKS NEW | eBay

I've been running these on my tuned R53, done a few track days & RWYB too, standard pads haven't faded or worn out ...yet....

Get in touch with Imran at Evolve Automotive Home they should be able to sort a re-map out for you

Just fitted EBC grooved & dimpled with green stuff pads, just awesome. Also make sure you order a wear sensor.
