    BBK Construction Complete

    I thought I'd get some images logged before the kit gets put on the rig. I spent more time than even I'd anticipated on this, but the kit is so legit. To my knowledge, it's the only one Earth that upgrades all 4 corners, and furnishes an upgraded e-brake unit for the Evoque.


    • Brake torque up ~35% (with only 12% more piston area)
    • Bias within ~5% of OE
    • Unsprung weight up ~7#/corner in trade for tons more heat capacity and stopping power
    • 4-pot front and rear calipers with Brembo electric parking brake (with factory harness for plug-n-play operability)
    • 14" high carbon dimpled rotors with electro-coated finish
    • EBC Redstuff ceramic pads
    • Stainless DOT lines and fittings
    • Stainless pins and bleeders
    • Chromoly adapters with 10.9 fasteners
    • Fits inside OE 19" wheels (I also drew up a no-compromise kit that requires 21-22" wheels - and yes it pained me to choose conservatively for this kit)
    • Finished with 2-stage urethane in Loire Blue Pearl


    At this point it may be spring before the final install. (These Ohio winters have a way of demanding patience)

    More entertainment.

    Incidentally, this set is up for grabs should custom pimpness be your thing. All the same attributes as listed for the blue set above. Stainless bleeders/polished fasteners etc. The metal flake has good flop, as does the brushed RANGE ROVER text. Sometimes it hides, and other times it pops. Kinda trick and classy at the same time, albeit by sacrificing audacity.

    Pretty impressive! Looks like it took a lot of work, and skill.

    Little bit. And I'm dying to get it on all on the road and see how it works out behind some new kicks. Seems like all the competitive makes have at least one tier with some nice Brembo units as an option, while we're left to stare at 11" rotors through 20" wheels. This needed addressed! But the payout will have to wait for the weather. (I see you're in Canal Fulton - I'm 30 mins north of you).

    When you get it on the road, let us know how it works out. Will be a while before the weather in Northeast Ohio breaks, and you can get the installation done

    Well, it's half done. I decided to tackle the front while I had the bumper and quarters off for some other nonsense over the weekend. I'd forgotten how finished this project was when I'd packed it away. Lines, hoses, fittings, and even the bolts and number and thickness of spacers were all precisely packed away from having mocked it all up. (It was like opening a brand new kit, because I'd lost all recollection of having done that). Suffice to say, it was quite a reward after the wait. Test drive went equally well, with perfect pad contact, zero noise, and a smooth response. The only real downer was the gravity bleed that I didn't realize would go as quickly as it did .. and so I pulled air into the MC .. that I then had to push back out. Annoying, but not terribly troublesome.

    C'est Fini. Tested = Response is smooth. Bias is solid. ABS (which incidentally is really good on this car) works as it did. If I learn otherwise as the mileage add up, I'll update.

    Finally got the meats on, lending a legitimate look to the whole brake project.
    (Amazing how easily a 21" barrel will swallow up a 360mm disc.)
