Brake disk conversion for 12s
« on: March 04, 2021, 05:54:31 pm »
Hi all,
First post, almost certainly already been answered before but I can't seem to find it.
I'm in the process of restoring a 1973 126, the end plan is a hyper 9 electric motor (please don't murder me purists).
I am therefore after some more stopping power, it is on 12 inch banded steels bolted to a much later set of hubs 1990s (again, sorry purists)
My question is what disk upgrade (off the shelf or diy) can I fit under 12s? most seem to need 13 inches?
Thanks in advance,

Seeing your not putting the 126 back to factory specifications I'd just go for 13" wheels

I’m a purist but I’ll forgive you (or at least not condemn you!) if you post some pictures!

1973 is a special year for our cars, it would be great to know a bit more about the car, how you came across it, what colour it is, any history!
