I have just purchased a standard (15" wheels) 2002 built TF and am surprised by how much pedal force is required to get a reasonably quick stop. I have been told that this is "normal" for the standard brakes "which is why so many people fit the larger discs and AP calipers", which of course necessitates 16" wheels, a new set of tyres etc. As the Conti tyres on my MGF are in good nick and I suspect the 16" lower-profile tyres will make the ride firmer, I am reluctant to go down that route. Does anyone offer high-friction pads? More to the point, if they exist, do they work?? Anyone out there have experience of this problem and have any ideas, or do I need to start weight training to develop stronger leg muscles?
