And 5mm off the bracket to go down to 280 discs. If your not building a track car then you'll not be buying expensive track tyres in 16". I'd stick with 16's because turini's looks ace!I need to mill 5mm from calipers, maybe I would do it for the price of the tyres. I will not be used so much on track.
Good to see positive progress despite the set backs you had ?. Looking forward to next years updates mate.And for this year I am done.
I ended up changing the oil and put new winter tires, also remove the 16mm spacers and try to balance with 2.5 grams weight on the edge. I don't like how it handles with spacers, this was the reason I remove them. et37 is just fine, et21 was too much.

So this is all for this year with my daily Clio.
Thank you again to @NorthloopCup, @OssPoop, @Mbeau and @adir and some friends from Romania, Mihai and Alex. You always help me with all I need. Thank you a lot!
Hello mate,Hi Radugns, Why don't you keep using the 2 pot calipers? and is it really work with 300mm disc? because I read another threads that said 300mm is too big for the 2 pot calipers and must to reduce to 290mm.
Hello mate,Hows the pad coverage looking with the brembo's on Radu? Any lip on the disc's?
Awesome, I'll stick with those dimensions then!Hello mate,
There is no lip, are perfect to the diameter of the disc. Only close to hub is a "lip", but that is due to disc size. Also that one was present on 2pot calipers. So you've done not a good job, but a perfect one!
Thanks Radugns, I would like to know the 2cm free movement of the brake pedal, is it still have that free movement when using the 197 brembo ?Hello mate,
Well, tbh the 2pot caliper also need a bigger master cylinder, although the brakes were solid with standard master cylinder, I have around 2cm or a little more of free movement of the brake pedal and because of that the brakes not really bite as stock ones on an emergency brake.
I managed to get a cheap set of brembos and rebuild them, so why not use them.
The only real advantage of Brembo is wide range of racing pads. But for a daily is not the case.
And no, you need 300mm discs, the outer edge of the pads was exactly at the diameter of the disc, not even a mm lost. At least in my case of 2pot calipers.
The 2 pot caliper has one 40mm diameter piston and one 45mm diameter piston. The volume of brake fluid to move them is smaller than the brembo one where are four 40mm diameter pistons. Although I have never use them with standard master cylinder, the free play 99% should be there. With the bigger master cylinder there is no free play and brakes bite quite well.Thanks Radugns, I would like to know the 2cm free movement of the brake pedal, is it still have that free movement when using the 197 brembo ?
