    SD Garage is currently doing some R&D for its own name products.

    Their is already one on the cards which just needs to be tested, but im 99% sure already it will hold up to the task.

    A bracket has been developed for the F series Diff to take the R series skyline 296mm rear rotors
    with 2 x R32/33/34 twin piston rear calipers. (one foot - one hydro Hand brake)
    I will also be looking to make this available for the T series.

    these calipers area readily available and are very light!

    The bracket will be bolt on and weigh in at only 1.1kg!!! and atm the soon to be tested bracket will be made from 2024 - T4 Aircraft grade Aluminium which is above 6061 and below 7075 - the bracket would have weighed 3.3kg if made in mild steel!!

    That may change to keep it cost affective, as this material aint cheep!!

    I will have pics up some time next week of the 1st prototype, which will be going on my car

    If your interested post your intrest here.

    Discuss and get excited... more to come

    yeah yeah i should note to cover my own that this is for Race use only.

    EDIT - 17 Nov

    Which F series diff is this for? For example I have a MX23 diff with ST141 disks and calipers in my RA60. Would this bracket work with this diff, or are you looking at Tarago or IRS cars?

    Update - the test items have come off the CNC yesterday, they look freaken awsome!
    Testing will be carried out once my car is going.. soonish and if it all holds up these brackets will be readily available for single purchase and also looking at a complete bolt on kit including calipers rotors pads and braided lines.
