SS brake lines are legal if the lines have a DOT rating on them ..



RACE Brakes nz

he blurb on braided hoses: Short answers. Yes, they are legal for road use as long as they meet a required standard.

Yes, we can build them for you if you provide us a sample hose or a very, very clear set of instructions. No, you won’t need to certify the car.

For a long time, virtually any type of braided brake hose was O.K, but they needed to be signed off by a low volume vehicle certifier, which meant that the car had to have a low volume certificate. Now the LTSA requires the braided hose itself to meet an approved standard, which is marked on the hose so the testing station guys can pass them, and does away with the need to certify the vehicle.

The first is a properly swaged type like Goodridge, the acknowledged Rolls-Royce of braided brake hoses.

These are manufactured like a rubber hose with proper braided hose swaged fittings at each end, i.e. a minimum amount of joins which translates into lighter weight and less chance of having any connection problems.

from what ive heard any thing d2 stay away from. yeah no cert needed for braided lines but they need to be dot approved if not your'll need to get a cert

same goes for brake upgrades, people who i know have chosen brembo and are very pleased with the end results with the better performance and the added safety, just make sure you get the correct rotor so suit the caliper

I had problems with brake fade when competing in the Dual Sprints at Taupo on the short circuit where you do 3/4 laps hard out.

Solution for me:

Motul RBF 600 brake fluid which has the highest boiling point

Carbon Ceramic brake pads, sorry can't recall brand

I am still running standard rotors, brake lines, pedal set up etc.

I am able to match or outbrake some of the race prepared cars there so I am very happy with that.

Important to use the cool down lap wisely and let the brakes cool as much as you can before you get back into the pits.

These pads are excellent for street use too, come on strong from cold but improve of course with heat build up.

Good fluid and pads are under-rated
