Best S4 Tires and Brakes Question
Hello Fellow Esprit Enthusiasts,
I’m asking the following for a friend who plans to do a vintage race with his ‘95 Esprit S4.
He’s wondering what the best tires would be for the stock size wheels for both excellent traction as well as good wear characteristics. He plans to us his S4 for a vintage race at Road America later this year.
And, as he was kind enough to fulfill a lifetime dream of mine to drive an Esprit, when I drove his it seemed that the factory Brembos were very, very weak. Dangerously so, even. Perhaps that’s normal, but I expected far more stopping power than it provided.
The car had sat for some time prior to his taking ownership a couple years ago, but I fear the the weak brakes could be a major concern if used in competition, especially at Road America where he plans to run it.
Any ideas for the tires and brakes?
Anything else he should know?
Thank you much in advance!
