Alfaholics 4-Pot Brake Kit
£1,095.00 GBP (ex vat)
Exclusively designed and manufactured for Alfaholics, this kit represents the ultimate 4-pot brake upgrade for 105 series/ Alfa Romeo!
The kit is a result of an extensive development programme consisting of thousands of miles of both circuit and fast road use on our own cars. We have used this experience and data to evolve our existing offering and produce an all-new 4-pot kit incorporating significant improvements in caliper design, as well as machining quality.
By designing a bespoke caliper for the 105 series, we have been able to eliminate the compromises associated with a generic ‘off the shelf’ item. For example, we have been able to enlarge the caliper where necessary and at the same time increase the number of cross bolts from 5 to 8 in total. These two key features have dramatically increased the rigidity of the caliper, thereby improving pedal feel and reducing pedal travel. This has also resulted in considerably increased stopping power! Mounting brackets are available for either small uprights (1300/1600) or large uprights (1750/2000), to ensure that this kit fits all 105 series cars. The new caliper fits inside both the Alfaholics 6×14” GTA Strada and the Alfaholics 7×15″ GTA Veloce wheels.
In developing this new caliper, we have chosen not to use dust seals to allow the caliper to withstand higher brake temperatures. Max has run his GTA Replica using calipers without dust seals for 3 years and some 20,000 miles with no adverse effects. In fact, having recently stripped the calipers down to their component parts, they are still as new! The reality is that for mainly fair weather use, dust seals are not necessary as the calipers are not exposed to winter road treatments often enough to need them. However, for customers who wish to have dust seals, we shall continue to stock our previous production.
The kit is supplied complete with all bolts, lock nuts, washers and hydraulic fittings, ready to fit directly to your car with no modifications.
This kit is compatible with standard Alfa Romeo master cylinder & servo systems as well as aftermarket master cylinder systems such as the Alfaholics single & dual circuit master cylinder conversions.
