« on: March 25, 2011, 09:29:01 PM »
is anyone on here running braided brake lines on a r32 gts/t?

only reason i ask is all the kits i have seen are for GTR's which i have been told are different to gts/t and am thinking of trying to find a set.

if my memory is correct they are all diff, i had DE brakes and had to swap lines when i went to DET brakes, as the DE ones didnt fit, and i have been told when i was looking ofr a braided lines that the GTR lines wont fit i have seen a guy on trademe selling good lines for GOOD price, not sure if they fit R32 but they fit R33.

ok just checked my listings, and i found the old auction and yes they fit r32 :D

but he does not have a new listing so maybe ask him here is the link

Alert or Racebrakes can custom make braided brake hoses to NZ spec with the proper yellow? ID tag, so don't need a cert.

Have to use good fittings, teflon hose to cover braid, etc. I know Racebrakes know what to use and are very good at making them.

I have do-luck ones, the pack says R32 or R33 fitment.. they are not the banjo fitment type (which I had on the DE brakes).

Got them off ebay for 50 quid (about $120 in NZD) I believe they can be certed but they don't have a yellow tag so wont pass a wof without cert.

Wook, they def are different. Goodridge dont make them for GTSt at all. Pretty av.

You can get legal HEL brand lines from the UK for them though, and you can even get the sleeves in pretty colours :)

From all accounts, they are good.
