    Depends on budget really. My uprated Tarox discs and Mintex pads came in at around £100.

    May help if you expand on what you already have then, including wheels. I am sure the Wilwood stuff needs 14" wheels as a minimum. It might also be a servo and master cylinder upgrade you consider, unless you have already done that?

    Think you are maxed out on 13" wheels. There may have been an 13" RFX wheel that you could fit 4 pots under but can't remember where I read about it. I also recall reading about someone who was trying to find various 4-pot calipers to use such as ones off m'bikes but don't think an answer was found.

    All depends on which 13” wheel you are using - it’s the offset and width which have a lot to do with clearance as well.

    I use 13” wheels on my car, and I’m pretty sure Jezz Francis does on his Nova too. But we’re using wheels which aren’t in FWD offsets, and are also much wider than is normal.

    Mine uses a 4-pot caliper from a motorcycle, along with a very slim solid disc.

    I’m guessing you are using ventilated discs?

    A previous post post mentioned Revolution RFX, I seem to recall they had the most calliper clearance for a FWD offset 13” rim.
    To contact me please use E-MAIL to colinesmith@aol.com.

    thousands of Nova (plus other Vauxhall and motorsport parts) available.
