Going to fit the ap racing kit to the front of my gp, anybody know if the standard front calipers & discs will fit on the back ok?

no need as the rear discs are fine as the AP will be more than enough and the others wont fit on either look at it this way even the GTT and lohen cars both are 290 bhp plus retain the normal rear callipers only have better pads and discs also ive heard from a few folk who reccomend ditching the normal AP pads for mintex m1144's that lohen sell in the AP fitment

thats good to know, but thot i would use the fronts on the back as the calipers looks better & will match the same colour red as the ap's ?

You cant put front brakes onto the rear of a car, coz they are totally different fitment and sizes etc plus you have the hand brake to think about... :)

cool, thot somebody might of done a conversion kit of a sort, so its just a case of up rating the discs and the pads on the rears then:)

yep and make sure you seriously soak the disc retaining bolts with wd40... their a complete git for corroding and seizing in

This is NOT possible.

There needs to be a Point on the caliper For the Hand brake cable, the Front Calipers Do not Have this Function....

Think Again..

There is Nothing Wrong with the Bais on teh Front to back even with Bigger Brakes.

Have to Stick with Small calipers on the rear affraid

Sure someone has Made aftermarket ones somewhere though....
