Hey guys,

 

I am changing my brakes and wanna knwo the torque values which I have to use.

Firstly sorry for my english :-)

 

I am changing my Discs and the Pads. I have a Dixcel 400mm Brake Kit. The Disc is mounted with "Boppins" (is it spelled correct)

I need to know the torque of these Boppins. Is it a good idea to mount the Boppins on the new Disc with Loctite 242 (middle) ?

 

Also I need to know the torque of the front calipers and of the rims(I know 120NM I need for other cars, but is it on GTR also?)

Another question is, how high is the temperature on the hats? Can I paint them Black? Now they are silver

I'd reach out to Dixcel and/or the company that you bought the brake kit from to confirm but this is what I found online concerning torque specs for the "bobbins" on the R35:

 

 

 

Torque to 6.5 Nm and then turn nut a further 30 degrees and make sure after that all nuts are torqued to between 10Nm to 12Nm

 

This thread should cover the caliper torque specs:

As for the wheels/rims, torque spec is 132Nm.
