Hey guys, Got a few questions regarding modplates. When you get an LA2 plate do you need a brake upgrade? Ive seen quite a few silvias with rb's and still running 4 stud setup. If you fitted all the skyline brakes and master etc would that just be an LG2 or would it need both LG1 and LG2? Cheers more

I rang and explained they had sent the wrong motor but they were pretty certain it... more
