Braided brake hoses?

6 posts in this topic

Im planning on getting my S3's rubber brake hoses replaced with some stainless steel braided ones. Has anyone had this treatment done? If so, any noticable difference? And what make would be recommended. Oh wheres the best place to buy them from?

Cheers

I've got the Goodridge ones, bought them from Demon Tweaks (I think) With the standard S3 brakes I think they need all the help they can get.

To be honest, I had them fitted when I had the Greenstuff pads fitted, so I can't honestly say how much difference they make, it just stands to reason though, that the one time in your life when you really have to stop shocked.gif the hoses will not deform.

Hi folks!

With braided hoses you tend to feel a sligjty firmer pedal.

It all comes into play more when on track etc. when brake fluid gets hot and rubber hoses flex more.

When fitting hoses replace fluid with Dot 5 fluid and mintex 1155 pads, no more brake fade!

i used to run this set up on my scooby for trackdays.

adviasble to ge discs that will cope though, the 1155 can make a mess of em!.

Cheers Lee
