The entire blown 2-litre variants of the Mk7 Golf – from the Efficiency Pack and Clubsport vehicles, proper as much as the Golf R – are all fairly rattling tasty on the ability entrance, so it’s no surprise that they make superb observe vehicles.
You understand what they are saying although; hardcore vehicles want hardcore brakes, in order that’s why these new discs from EBC Brakes Racing may very well be a godsend.
They’re not messing about with these, providing direct-fit 340mm jobs that use a correct motorsport-style ‘floating rotor’ setup. The concept is that the friction floor actually hovers on eight chrome steel bobbins, over a light-weight all-aluminium hub (which itself saves practically 3kg per pair).
In addition they are inclined to switch far much less warmth to the hubs and wheels than commonplace single-piece discs.
