Calipers

 
Ventilated/slotted discs with 4-potts calipers from AP Lockheed. Early cars used the calipers as seen in pic 1-2 (1983-84), later the brakes were upgraded (1985-86) and Volvo used the brakes as in pic 3-4. But in 1985 and 1986 Volvo tested Brembo-brakes as in pic 5-6 (Magnum Racing 1985 & RAS Sport 1986) Cars that this was tested on was #605 and #604, both cars built by Magnum Racing.
