Lupo GTI rear brakes on UP (GTI)

Recommended Posts

I reviews some video of the UP GTI, which has rear drums, and some people said the rear brakes from UP GTI can be replaced with LUPO GTI rear discs. that would be good.

any ideas?

likely, most VW Lego is compatible with other sets.

I know that rear discs would look much nicer through the open alloy wheels on the Up! GTi, but as far as actual brake performance goes, the standard Up! GTi setup is better than that of the Lupo GTi. I was surprised with how well the Up! braked.

rear brakes do nothing really, new brakes always feel good.

well..probably 15 years between them  means also other other improvements...like master cylinder...pedal feel...and of course being new helped.

i cannot agree that rear brakes do really nothing. they do some. besides echilibrating the body of car during brake..also brake distribution. imagine 0% brake power on rear during hard brake or even during curves..lets imagine both :)
