    Re: Roadster spares

    Are the "New unused set of 'Greenstuff' brake pads" for the front disk brakes?

    Due to space limitations when fitting the 1.6 MX5 engine, have had to delete the servvo from the MX5 Master Brake cylinder which I am using to drive the brakes on my SWB MK11 Marlin Roadster (doner car was a 1978 1800cc Morris Marina Coupe).

    So looking for some extra "bite" for the front brakes, how much for the GreenStuff pads posted to Milton Keynes? If you think they will make a difference over OEM ones?

    I fitted MGF rear discs to my roadster which work really well. The only problem was the rear wheels would lock under heavy breaking. So I fitted green stuff pads to the front discs and have made a huge difference. the car now breaks evenly and quick. Cant remember where I bought them but it was on e bay somewhere.
