    That's what we're trying to resolve by having this discussion bro.

    When I get the time I'm gonna have a look fir a suitable disc to go with a skyline (or evo) rear caliper that I can also use that wilwood caliper with. Preferably 4x4.5" but getting discs redrilled is cheap and easy. S13 front disc would suit me fine but I might just use the r33 stuffsince I've already got it and make the wilwood caliper sit on the other end. Yeah I think that's what I want.

    s13 rear caliper is cable operated.

    The problem here is apparently, they aren't great even when used as a hydraulic handbrake so there's no point in using those.

    To run an s13 rear caliper, disc and say r/z chassis rear caliper, you've probably gotta space out the r/z caliper to work with the thinner disc. Otherwise you gotta run a shaved down s13 pad on an r/z disc (IF it fits) with r/z caliper.

    The best solution, I think, is to run a r/z caliper with r/z disc and that 4 pot wilwood caliper with cable actuation. That way you get big rear brakes, hydro handbrake and cable handbrake.

    Ok, so R32/33/z32 is 297x18mm rear disc. The wilwood caliper is designed for 20.6mm disc. The wilwood info sheet lists a mounting holes pcd of 3.5" for a 11.75"(298mm) disc. So it should be possible to run r/z calipers and calipers with the wilwood forged superlite internal.

    I still wanna go look at r/z drum handbrake to see how hard (or easy) it is to do onto f-series.

    I had a look at an mx73 cressida yesterday.

    Has 269mm rear floating vented rotors, and 4x114.3. I just dont know if the hat goes close to fitting over the axle plates on the f series drum diff.

    It too appears to have an inner drum in the backing plate.

    269mm seems to be more in tune with what people run compared to the near 300mm skyline rear brakes mentioned.

    I might go and have a stroll through a local wrecking yard, internal drum handbrake would be balls, ill look into a cable operated caliper

    on another note, the new bracket kit for the r33 rear brakes has come together nicely and test fitted up great, its being plated as we speak so i should have to pics/info up in a couple of days for those boys who are intersted in this, seems to be a fantastic solution for people on the tracks.

    MA70 supra rear brakes have internal drum brake and already have a bracket made up for a hilux G series. These are the brakes I have on my car but just using a hydraulic handbrake and if that's not good enough then might end up using the internal drum as well.

    WRX is 266x18 67.5 high 58mm bore (too small for toyo)
    mx73 is 269x18 61 high 60mm bore
    z32/r32 gtr/gts-t/r33 gts-25t/r34 25gt-t is 292x18 64 high 68 bore
    r33/r34 gtr is 300x22 63 high 68 bore
    ma70 is 291x18 68.5 high 60 bore

    I checked vt commo too but that thing has a 16mm solid disc. Not interested. Go one brakeset up and you end up in the 300s with a 22mm disc. Same with falcons.

    Anyone else have any ideas for decently sized drum handbrake cars/discs?

    What's the id of a 15" wheel? Anyone know the maximum rotor and caliper you can run under most 15's?

    Oh shiii. I like that. A lot. Mounts from behind, keeps the front free.

    So I take it you looked into doing drum handbrake and found it too hard?

    You wanna make a one off caliper mount for me (and everyone else if they want it too) by moving one pair of the caliper mount holes to make the wilwood FSLI caliper fit?
