Information: This Smarts4you Racing 280mm 4pot rear conversion kit will fit your Smart Fortwo 451. This kit has been designed to fit perfectly inside the standard 15" Smart Car wheels or larger without the need for spacers or washers. The guys at Smarts4You drive Smart Cars every day, from base models up to the Brabus, and they drive them hard. they noticed that under heavy braking that the rear drums start to squeel, need dust and adjust and also that with the engine over the rear wheels there was not enough braking power to rear causing the back to feel very loose and even wanting to swap ends with the front. The Smarts4you racing rear conversion kit is very easy to fit and comes complete with all the parts you need, including a very neet built in handbrake pad.
Pricing: Product pricing is for a 1 complete 280mm 1 piece disc Smarts4you Racing brake conversion kit, (both rear hubs).
What does a full conversion kit do? The caliper has also been designed to suit the size, the weight and the bore of the master cylinder in small cars. Hence 4 pot calipers and not 6 pot calipers, we found that with the 6 pot calipers we trialled gave far too much pedal travel and a spongy feel. They are CNC machined from billet bar and have hard anodised aluminium Pistons.
- The rotors are drilled and grooved to aid brake cooling and gas build up between the pad and the caliper, also helps with continuos pad deglazing.
- Our brackets are machined from a single piece of aluminium to a perfect size to allow easy fitting of the calipers, with out the use of ugly spacers and washes.
- Braided hoses are made by us using stainless steel Braided hose swaged on to high grade stainless steel fitments and have a protective outer coating in clear or coloured.
