Performance Friction V3 330mm big front disc kit suitable for all Megane 2RS models including the 225, F1, R26, R26.R and 175 DCi as well as the Clio 3 RS models including the 197, R27, 200, 200 Cup and Gordini. Testing has found that this kit will easily fit behind the Megane RS 18" wheels but it will also fit behind the standard* 17" wheels fitted to the Clio 3 RS models.
The kit has been designed to work with the original Brembo 4 pot calipers as these are well up to the job of stopping the car given the right discs, pads and braided lines to work with.
The kit uses a pair of Performance Friction slotted 330mm rotors which are made from high carbon alloy with copper and molbdenum for high temperature strength, they are then heat treated for micro structure alignment and durability. They are then tested for run out to a tolerance of less than .0005 inches. The rotors also feature handed vanes to reduce thermal warping and vibration.
The rotors are then fitted to the car using the Performance Friction V3 fully floating snap ring mounting system. The special alloy bell design prevents heat transfer through to the wheel hubs and also means that once the discs need replacing it is only the rotors that need to be changed, not the complete assembly.
This V3 disc retention method is based on the use of a two-turn retaining ring, which is held in a groove in the hat that overlaps the disc tangs effectively locking the disc to the hat.
The full PFC kit includes 1 pair of slotted rotors with fully floating V3 alloy bells, 1 pair spacers and high tensile caliper bolts.
Each disc weighs approximately 6.7kg.
We recommend fitting this kit along with our KTR braided brake lines and one of the sets of Performance Friction high performance pads we have available on this site.
PFC advise use of their own pads with the discs as other manufacturers pads can contact the tangs of the disc, if another manufacturers pads must be used please ensure they cannot contact the tangs during braking.
* Please note you may have to move some wheel weights on the inside of the standard 17" wheels to gain extra clearance, if this is required you will just have to get the wheel re-balanced.
