Project Fiesta ST – Improving the Brakes with a Gold Coast Automotive Big Brake Kit and a Ford Racing Brake Controller


The caliper adaptor bolts were tightened up.
Then the caliper was installed onto the adaptors.
Blue Loctite was again used on the bolts to fasten the calipers onto the adaptors.
The brake line was reattached.
Instant really big brakes.  17″ wheels must be used with this application as the brake are huge. The car's owner had fitted some R4 brake pads before and we have had good luck with these previously and decided to keep them since they looked to be in good shape.
The rear brakes required removing the caliper from the bracket since we were going to be changing the bracket itself.   The slider pins were removed from the caliper.  The brake line bolt is remvoed and the caliper hung to prevent stress on the brake line.


  1. Hey guys sweet build! Do you know if this is the bspec abs module? Or a different one? Looking for the part number!

  2. Hi Mike, wondering if you know the owner of Gold Coast Automotive directly? I’ve been trying to buy the front and rear kit for awhile now but can’t get in touch with them. Their website isn’t accepting payments anymore.

    1. I don’t know, this is a pretty old article and it was a small company for a car that ended up not being too popular.
