I’ve make and tested some prototype brake brackets that allow cheap(ish) Porsche 986 brembo callipers to fit the r53 with cheap(ish) GP discs.

Tested today at goodwood with ferrodo pads and stopping power was awesome, no fade at all (unlike the stock cooper s brakes that faded within 2 laps).

Would there be any interest if I had a batch of these brackets made? Callipers can be had on eBay for under £300, brembo discs are about £100 from euro car parts, and hoses can be bought next-day from Hel

Yes interested for the brackets.

What are they made out of?

Interesting big brake conversion - nice work!
Are you on the R53 Owners Club on Facebook?
Reckon you'd get a fair bit of interest on there. A lot of folk would like to know about this.

Hello Mr Skinner. I've just posted a link to your post on the R53OC. I see you joined about a week ago. Smart move. It is where all the R53 stuff happens!!
