What about Linea Front brake disc and pads for T-Jet.
Can they be installed in Palio/Adventure? The earlier Linea did had same pads and disc as are in Adventure.
They are said to be a lot much better, can they be installed in Adventure?

@hrsraghav,
If they are the same, why would you want to change them? I think they will fit the Adventure without any problem but you may not see any difference or just a minor improvement in braking. The kit that I got installed was a new one with the Lancia logo on it. If you have the same, then you may not need an upgrade, just newer brake pads.

What I said was, the earlier Linea (Non T-Jet) brake setup for front was same.
But in the T-Jet one, rear ones are disc brakes, and probably the front one too have larger disc tan earlier ones (not sure)
I was curious about upsizing the whole brake setup (front larger discs, and rear from drum to disc).
Why I brought up the similarity was to know whether boosters also need to be changed if I am uprading to T-Jet brakes (if at all it's possible).

@hrsraghav,
Now I get it.
Let me find out from my mechanic if that can be done and also the information about disc size in the TJET as well as the booster size.
Funny - I just upgraded my discs to what you have on your car and you want more.
My next upgrade would be to get an Adventure rear drum setup.

I had also enquired about rear disc brake setup but the mechanic was not for it, maybe because of the pain involved in the install. Also he mentioned something related to hand-brake problems after such a conversion.

Regards,
Kaustubh

Hi,
A lot got improved by upgrading tyres form 175 width to 195 width, and with softer rubber. Like the change was considerable. But still brakes are spongy.
I have clocked aorund 50K Kms now. Although the mechanic is saying the rear shoe brakes still have life in them, but I am also thinking to alter them.
Any idea about better, brake pads and brake shoes.
Its a bit off topic, but I recently changed the hsoe brakes of my pulsar bike, to a non bajaj approved one, and it improved a lot. Just that wear out a bit more relative to reccomended one, but I am more than happy for if I have to live with fast fearing but considerable gripping, compared to long lasting and low gripping brakes.
There is very less inofrmation available about performance break pads and shoes for Palios.
I would prefer a step by step upgrades.
First tyre upsizig, then better brake pads and brake shoes.
Changing disc and drums is last option.
But if you are still tryong for that, then I think atleast availability whouldnt be a problem now, as Linea(non T-Jet) parts are common with Adventure, so you don't have to wait for any donor Adventure. I presume the rear drums maybe compatible with palio.

Hi,
I have a quick question in regards to the upgrades.

Can Fiat Punto/Linea Discs, and calipers match those of Palio's?
If they do, is it advisable swap?
Can we expect any better braking?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi Naveen,
I think the NA Linea shares the same disc/calliper setup as the Adventure. So it should be a bolt on swap. I got myself the Adventure ones since it was proven.

Update - I have changed my tyres to 195 wide A-Drives. The drive has improved a lot and the braking also is not spongy. I am going for a highway drive next week. Will update about high speed braking once I am back.

Kaustubh

Hi,
Do we need to change the calipers as well. I thought all Fiat's have same caliper.

Regards,
Vijay

@Jagan - The braking has improved a lot after the tyre upgrade and is very very confidence inspiring. Well I have not measured the distance it takes to stop from 100 KMPH, but it has reduced quite a bit.
Yes, and its a safe upgrade.

@vijaycool -
The callipers and pads also need to be changed to the bigger sized ones. They are not the same size.

Kaustubh

VijayCool, how much did it cost, and where did you get those spares.
I am planing that upgrade, but I am not able to source those spares in Hyderabad.

Bumping up the old thread.

@Vijay, is it possible for you to detail the process of upgrading the brakes to Adventure brake set up for GTX.

I am seriously looking for brake upgrade on my GTX at any cost after few heart stopping close calls.

My mechanic in Bangalore in not aware of this upgrade and I want to collect all the information before I go in with purchase.

Thanks in Advance

Regards
