MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - Brake Disks??
|Are the MGB brake disks the same as the V8's? I checked the dimensions of the B and the V8 spec's on the following website:|
and they appear to be the same size, but are they the same? I.e. can I replace my front disks with a standard set of MGB brake disks?
|Nope, BV8 dics are thicker.|
|Thanks Jake, I thought they were different. Does anyone know a good (cheap?) source for replacement disks?|
|brembo rotor at www.cambridgemotorsport.co.uk, eleven £ env.|
|If that is 11 quid each that is cheap, my regular V8 supplier is showing 69 quid per pair.|
|excuse me, the prices increased, brembo for MGB 19.95£ each, for V8 36.92£ each.|
If looking for V8 discs, try Peugeots 604 discs. Cheaper & good availability. I could even order them that way, x-drilled and perfect fit. If you want to, I can send you details.

|A plain vented disc for B is £25 each and drilled £38, just need diff calipers.|
|From where Paul?|
|These are vented (270x24) for use with Wilwood or adapted other calipers, but should also be available from Cambridge Motorsport but not checked price|
