Glenda’s Honda Integra DC2 – Part 16
Oooh what's in that second box?
Brakes, stoppers, binders, anchors, call them what you will; what you are looking at here is the most important part of your car. Don’t stop you die, it’s as simple as that.
And if you can stop faster and even more efficiently, well that means more fun, which is precisely my aim with my latest mod.
The DC2 has pretty decent brakes as standard, but it’s a 20-year-old car and things have moved on somewhat with brake technology – so I’ve decided to replace the front set up with these super badass 6-pot calipers and 304mm discs from PB Brakes.
Chances are you haven’t heard of PB Brakes, and there’s a good reason for that as they are pretty new and actually sell direct to the UK via Taiwan. This means no distributors, no dealers, no middlemen, and results in you saving some serious cash. Happy days.
For some reason Taiwanese made products often get a bad and undeserved stick by the keyboard warriors, when the truth is Taiwan has a great auto parts industry and is one of world’s leading manufacturers.
As you can imagine I get my hands on a lot of products, and these are as good a quality as anything else I’ve seen.
From the high-grade vented FC250 iron alloy brake rotors, to the high- performance street compound pads, stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines and 6-pot aluminium calipers it all screams quality.
Anyway, that’s enough of my jibba-jabba I’m off to the workshop to get these bad boys fitted and tested.
