I have a Speedster replica, which I built myself about 12 years ago and have been fiddling with it ever since. A couple of years ago I converted it to IRS rear suspension and fitted it with an Alfa 33 engine. the performance is now superb, however, I decided it was time to improve the braking. The original car was a GT beetle so it has always had front disks, but rear conversion kits are expensive, so its taken a while to get around to it. This week, however, I eventually got an Empi conversion as it considerably cheaper that others on the market. I fitted it over the weekend with out too much difficulty, the only real faff was shortening the handbrake cable. The problem is, although I expected a bit of bedding in, at present three good pumps of the brake pedal are required to engage the brakes. Is this normal at first ? is the kit not as good as it could be ? have I done something Dumb ?
