the GP has a big brake upgrade to 13", Goneville said that a local GP member is putting Vette brakes on his car, not sure if the GP and the Bonne have similar setups

hopefully Goneville will take a look when his friend does the Vette upgrade on that GP so we can compare parts

How come you need new brakes? I personally think mine are too powerful.. and mine are cheap POS. They lock up all the time.. so my braking ability is better than my traction.

Is it because of the bigger wheels?

One of my friends has a GTP and the calipers are totally different than my SSEi'*. I can't vouch for any newer Bonnevilles, but my 95 and his 98? GTP are not the same. Rotors I can believe, but calipers, no.
