Anyone know a good brake replacement for a 91 Diablo with stock 17" wheels. Brembro only has replacements for 18" and larger.
Hi Tech Exotic Racing, My 1992 Diablo fitted with Koenig Racing brake kit,and I still used original 17" wheels, the track on the front wheel is wider than standard,
and with the suspension setting according to the factory manual with the given ride height both front and rear,
and I use the tires with sizes, and made as manual stated.
The setting for the front camber is set at -15' to -30'.
The outer edge of the front tires are rubbing the inner part of the front wheel arch lip at high speed bump. But it is only touched on the inner part of the wheel arch by about 2 mm.
The brake disks is now a 2 pieces with aluminum bell housing, and the caliper looks like a Brembo with the outer face machined down to make clearance to the inside of the 17" wheels.
Will your conversion kit to brembo to used with original 1992 Diablo 17" have wider track than standard to caused same problem with my Koenig brake set?
We are in LA time zone which is Pacific standard time. We make a lot of international calls. Email me your phone number and I'll give you a call. My email is [email protected].Sean, I'm from Thailand, my time zone here is GMT+7. Are you using L.A time zone or New York time zone?
I need to be in touch with you via phone, I'm very much interested to get that Brembo conversion kit for 1991-1993. Or if you could PM me or send me email at [email protected] would be very much appreciated.
The Koenig Racing Brake kits came with my car when I bought it. I've never experience driving a standard 1992 Diablo before. By searching through their current website, I found out that for the front wheel there is a 15mm spacer built in to the bell housing on each of the front disk brakes with total 30 mm wider track at front. Front disk size is 355/32 mm. They also stated that this kit came with 10 longer wheel bolts for the front. And also at my rear wheels, there are fitted with a 20 mm spacers on each wheels with total 40 mm wider track at rear also 10 longer wheel bolts fitted. The appearance is great but as I mention earlier at high speed with high speed bump, the outer edge of front ties rub with inner edge of front wheel arch.
The front spacer is built in to the bell housing, only 3-4mm clearance between the caliper and the tip of the thread of the bolts holding 3 pieces of this original 17" wheel together. So I can not decrease front spacer down. in order to make the top of the front wheel moved inward to give room, I can not adjust front camber further than -1 degree as they pull the caster down below +6 degree.
So I guess that a new set of front brake kit to fit under original 17" wheel is needed. Your help would be very much appreciated.
