Its very difficult to get that done....

BTW,
Doesnt' it need a ECU mod or something, cuz ABS is controlled by it?

For better braking, all u need is some cross drilled rotors and better brake pads..Thats also much easier to do as well.

Default Disk brakes and reengineering.

I would not say it is impossible for those with extreme deep pockets to configure a disk brake system on the rear wheels but getting the hand brakes to work properly on the rear will be the achellis heel of your effort at conversion. I would suggest that you procure softer grippier rear brake shoes instead of going the disk brake route if you feel the rear brakes are not upto your demading standards. Bye and wear your seatbelts.

HI,

It can be done. Get the kit off the TYPE II OHC in Thailand. They come stock with disks at the rear. But buying these from Honda may cost anything between 60 to 80,000

Cheers

There are people in Madras who can do it. You just need to get the hardware. Plus I have seen a OHC with rear disc brakes.

@Turboindia
Don't u have the Tarox brake pads and cross-drilled rotors for the Honda?? I've driven Jerry's car and its pretty good.

That should be the cheapest and best thing to do i guess, cost arnd 20-25k if i'm not wrong (for the Skoda)
