    So your happy with 5 stud then?

    I like the set-ups above but its still more brake than I need in my application.

    Im going to do a single caliper with a handbrake, looking for a rotor no bigger than maybe 280mm. Definitely must be vented.

    I really dont want to have to modify rotors to fit, so I may look at turning down the ends of the axles to suit some particular rotor.

    For mass vs features I think Wilwood caliper with a built in handbrake could be lighter and cheaper than an oem spec caliper, especially by the time you buy the Nissan calipers, pads, and rekit them. To my thinking it makes the Wilwoods at around $300 a pair seem very good value for what you end up with. Being an F series user I am a little bit conscious of how much unsprung weight I am adding vs the durability of the rear end. I only wanted to put the minimum sized diff into the car that I thought I could reliably use to keep it as light as possible, so adding 2 large sets of oem calipers and a slightly larger rotor than I desire is not quite where I want to be.

    I can see how its very good for the track though.

    Yeah doesn't really bother me just a bit hard finding 15" wheels in 5 stud, but already have 4 pairs so that's enough for now. The adapters cost $60, rotors $100 and remanufactured calipers were $150 so for the price I love it haha.

    The cutout is just big enough to slip over the smallest part of the diff housing, it steps up end the end of the diff tubes where the axle bolts, these brackets bolt on the side closest to the diff centre (not the outside) so you do not need to remove the axle. No modification required. I'll have pictures up tomorrow of these fitted, I was so happy how the fitted tonight, the caliper position is fantastic also
