Hi Maarten,

under normal road conditions, they feel just like the stock Viggen brakes (I kept the stock brakelines instead of replacing them with stainless steel)- which is just fine because I was always very happy with the Viggen brakes - but I hope they will show less fading on the race track because of the bigger rotors and *NOT* melt like my stock brakes did

Yours,

Philip

Update

I wasn´t really happy with the Hirsch discs, so I had them replaced with Porsche discs (322x32) last Saturday at Ring-Racing

What sort of discs did you have from Hirsch originally?

Here's a photo of the discs on my Saab - they look the same as yours:

Hi John,

the Hirsch brakes on your picture are quite old, from a time when Hirsch still called themselves "Carline" and when they used the Porsche 993 biturbo caliper and the Porsche disc.

Now, they are using the Ferrari F40 caliper and have their own disc made for them by brembo. The disc looks like this:



Yours,

Philip
