Bigger brakes on 1.4/1.3?

#1
Just wondering if the brakes on the bigger capacity engines are larger? I've heard from someone that they where but I though they where the same?
Any help is good

Would you need different calipers for those disks then?
I'm thinking I'll just keep the original brakes and get them reconditioned
i would have thought that the vented calipers were wider personally, but 1 member said last year that they were the same, i asked for pics or measurements but the thread died with no feedback iirc

Used to go through a set of pads every event with solid disks.
Changed to vented and we have had the same pads for 5-6 events no problem and there's no brake fade towards the end of the stage so...
Get some if you can :p

The almera brakes i have are bigger than my Nx100 calipers i have in me garage. There different in sizes from what i can see. But both calipers do need washers to space them central on the discs!!!

Ill have to dig out the NX100 calipers and put em up for sale......
