Bigger brakes on 1.4/1.3?

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......

what are the stopping power 150 bhp on the Almera ones ? also what types of washers do they need to fit
 
Yeh there the ones I like, are there any for sale which is already drilled to fit mines ? And are they light or heavy
£41 for four wheels with tyres on, bargain of my life!
Doubt it, I spent a few hours with a dremel and flap wheel to get them to fit.
