    Alcon was established in 1984 by engineer and sports car racer John Moore. Today Alcon specialises in the design, development and manufacture of specialist brakes and clutches for use in motorsport, performance road cars and specialist sectors such as defence, armoured protection and low carbon vehicles. Alcon is experiencing rapid growth in the demand of its products as they are adept at delivering programs that meet the stipulations of mainstream OEM’s at a cost that can be borne by low volume runs.

    Alcon has been providing brake and clutch solutions to professional teams competing in the world’s premier motorsport series including F1, NASCAR, World Rally Championship, Indy Racing League, S2000 and the Australian V8 Supercars, as well as to competitors in Clubman and other classes. Although Alcon is best known in racing, 50% of their activity is with prestige road car OEM’s, marque tuners, special vehicle builders, armouring and defence contractors, and the fast growing field of low carbon transport. Whether supplying innovative race-winning technology to teams in the F1 or advanced technology to a road vehicle, Alcon’s expertise is both learnt and applied at the very pinnacle of motorsport.

    Alcon supplies some of the world’s most prestigious brands including Audi, Bentley, Brabus and Jaguar Land Rover; as well as some of the most extreme applications such as the 900bhp/tonne Ariel Atom 500 and the Noble M600. Some of the applications for which Alcon has engineered innovative brake and clutch solutions are armoured protection, hybrid supercars, zero emission municipal trucks, low carbon taxis. With a wealth of experience and backed by its well-equipped development facility, Alcon thrives on the challenge of devising innovative and unusual solutions.

    Alcon ‘Advantage’ is a new range of off-the-shelf brake products tailored specifically for use by club racers and track day enthusiasts. The Alcon ‘Advantage’ gives drivers the competitive edge in braking, as well as providing dedicated support and service.

      You'd be able to get a generic alcon caliper and have dog bones machined to fit. probably have to get 2 piece rotors with a custom top hat or redrill the 5 stud to 4. + custom lines and pads.

      as to whether you'd want to get such an expensive brake calliper on the colt..................

      id ring GSL and get some good pads, fluids and rotors first before thinking about a calliper upgrade (if you havent done so already)

        no i have not done that all ready, i was just asking because eventually i wouldn't mind upgrading.
        don't you have willwood mono's on your car? how'd you make them fit?

          custom machined dog bone, custom lines. they arent anywhere near as good as alcon but they dont cost anywhere near as much either. and a massive upgrade over the stock calipers. wilwoods weigh like a third of the weight and probably perform 4- 5 times better.

            how much did it end up costing you all up? i had seen a few of them on euro colts.
            where did you end up getting the custom machine dog bone and lines made up?

              I cant remember to be honest. Some english company. I only bought the callipers and the dog bone from them though. I got the discs/pads/lines here.

              I think the calipers and dog bones were like 700
              discs were 750 or 650
              lines were like 350
              and the pmu pads rc09 were like $375 (got them from GSL actually, cheaper then buying direct from PMU =S).

              Any caliper can fit the car within reason, its the dog bone that you need machined that causes the issue.

                so you don't have the contact information of the people that you got it through? i originally saw the set up on a euro colt somewhere.

                    Anything for an evo 3 will fit. That will help your searching

                      Bolting on an upgrade for an evo 3 is the easy part, getting a wheel to fit is where the real problem is. Majority of E3 upgrades don't allow for many realistic wheel options
