    Na, no spacer and fits one there very well. The R33 Rotor is slightly thicker than the standard hilux drum.

    Normally $150-$250 a pair from most wreckers etc.. probably cheaper off the net. There are some sweet brake pads available for them, I’m using Green Stuff Pads

    Try looking overseas at recoed items I got my MA70 supra calipers for $170 delivered as a reconditioned set new pistons seals and a hone. Could send back the other ones I have to get back the $30 core charge but the cost of postage makes it not worth it, haha.

    if your paying $200 a set for R32/33/34 rears your paying a premium..
    $150 is what you should be getting them for.

    buy them from the net... dont even both calling a wrecker

    Rebuild kits are cheap as well, its a DIY job as well.

    has anyone ever looked into wrx my99ish rear rotors? 266x18mm 67.5mm offset.

    in just about to start building my rn25 hilux diff (which is g series i think?)
    im converting back to 4 stud and want a duel caliper setup that fits under 14'' wheels and suits the wilwood fronts.
    i also want minimal caliper protrusion.

    i've got 1 set of skyline 2 pots just need another.

    will update this thread with progress.
    car is full track car so no cable hand break needed.

    what meterials are you guys using for caliper brackets? im thinking 10mm mild steel but im wondering weather that would be strong enough?

    10 mm mild steel is BS overkill!!
    each bracket will weigh around 3 - 4 kg!

    i used 10mm ally 2024 and had no issues... bracket weight was around 600 grams from memory.

    your already adding about 40kg with a G series, do you really want another 10 - 15 kg ontop of that?

    you suspension will be up to shit, so much weight it wont be able to handle or keep the wheels on the black stuff.
    The car will feel like a dead weight..

    after you drive a car with massive unsprung weight, then mod it to loose around 6 - 8 kg / corner, the change in handling is outrageous!

    i know you have heard the whole unsprung weight argument before.. and i was one of those who said.. "yeah yeah whatever"... but until you do it to your own car, and notice the difference.... you will never fully understand.

    You need to think about this... design it right 1st... the car is light.. you have a twin piston, larger surface area, combined with a rather large vented/ most likely slotted rotor... and a relatively small wheel/tyre width/rolling diameter
    it will not take much force to lock it up...

    yes unsprung weight is abit of an issue isn't it.
    mabey i could try ally instead. it would be alot easier to make also.
    would 6061 grade do the job?

    The brackets i made aren’t an overkill, I’d rather something be stronger than it needs to be, and G series isn’t 40kg difference.

    I think it’s stupid to even consider making things out of light weight material, it’s the difference between a fat driver and a skinny driver. We are talking about safety here.
