Esprit GT3 rear brake discs - help

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the 1997 GT3 rear brake discs are fitted to anything else as my local supplier can't find anything!

EBC used to do them but they don't have any either.

 

Any help would be great as i need a new set and don't really want to go down the skimming route.

Last November Christopher Neil replaced mine with stock parts, give them a try

I recently had all four of mine skimmed on the car.

Local garage charged me £80 took them a couple of hours and made the world of difference.

I no longer shake violently and hold on tight when i brake at speed.

Just to inform others......

 

EBC = no stock

 

Lotus = no stock and have no idea when they are going to come in!

 

I like punky are going to have to get them skimmed.

It's getting bad that so many parts on the later Esprits are becoming unavailable. Will it be that we will only end up seeing these cars as static displays?

 

I couldn't get EBC rear discs ages ago for my GT3, I ended up getting a brand new genuine V8 set from ebay, half what it cost for a set from Lotus.

I've been looking for some time as well and have come up short, if anyone does find some, please let us know.

 

Thanks!

Probably of no use in this case but if anybody local to me wants a set of discs skimmed, just ask I have a brake lathe.

I took mine to a precision grinding place.

Got them back today and are amazed at the finish  :unworthy:

 

Best £40 ever
