Can anybody recommend an upgrade for the rear brakes as I have wilwoods on the front and now find that they overpower the rears.

More than likely down to a bad compensator valve rather than needing better rear brakes mate Smile

Swap to a bias valve instead of the rear compensator and drop some 1144's in the rear - they're cheap in that shape too. Or just try the 1144's first.

Thanks I was thinking about the bias valve and dialing a bit more to the rear. I will try the 1144's what brand are they? or do you have a link?

I think I have heard you can put 205 front calipers on the back but what do you then do about handbrake?

Change your rear pads first Thumbs up

Got Tarox drilled & veined rear discs & Ferodo 3000 pads on rears & can't fault them .....
Also have all new refurbed 330s with Brembos v6 calipers & Ashs bells/rotors on front with Ferodo Ds1.11 pads ....min dust & both still look like new ..these don't overpower my rears Whistle

If everything's working 100% you won't need a bias valve unless you take your ABS off ove course Thumbs up

They're cheap as chips from rally design, about 40 quid IIRC.

Why? With the temperatures you'll see on the rears they will perform worse than DS2500 pads would for road driving.

DS3000 need to be above 250°C to outperform 2500s, and don't come into their peak performance window until 400°C

They work amazing at Combe & wear rates top end Thumbs up
