Cheers mate, the whole brake setup is equivalent to what the V8 super cars (touring cars) currently use, the whole setup works really well without any bias.

I would like to know what size pistons are in the front and rear calipers, if you don't mind disclosing, and if you run the stock servo and master cylinder, or if you run twin master cylinders with brake balance bar and no, or a remote, servos? I wonder at how you Australians manage to stop those huge V8 Touring Cars when they don't appear to have a servo. i assume they have long pedals, top hung, with a LOT of leverage and a fair amount of travel, to get the mechanical advantage, and small master cylinders? I have never had the chance, being in the UK, to look closely at one, although there are a handful of fairly late ones over here now. Thanks!

Here's the specs on the calipers:
Front - http://www.alconusa.com/client_image...7.15_117_7.pdf
Rear - http://www.alconusa.com/client_image....10_105_26.pdf

I run the standard master cylinder and brake booster, the v8 supercars run twin masters with pedal box.

Hope that helps...

Are they Ex-V8 Supercar brakes? or did you get them new?

How do you find them with only the stock Master Cylinder? I would have thought there wouldn't have been enough pressure to push these monsters?

Yeah they were off a V8 supercar that had used them for testing. They were in very good condition by had the calipers rebuilt with new seals/fluid bridges/bolts etc....
No problem with standard master cylinder thus far but have only done one track day since they were installed...

I would suggest just making some , but apparently if you try to do that theres a possibilty you will be accused of stealing other peoples ideas....
Am I correct in assuming the Au t/c aka Taxi Racing still run 17" wheels and are going to 18's next year...
So, again , do 17's fit over these brakes ...?

Yea i have priced it up and its not cheap either. Still dont think it would be as expensive as a set of four supercar brakes.

Yup, They still run 17's in the V8 SuperTaxi's....How about a set of 10" wide ex-V8 centre lock wheels to go with them?

Rotora 6pot front 355mm
Rotora 4pot rear 330mm

H6 pads all around. Brakes like a mother. Don't know where rotora stands in the world for popularity and all but I got sick of seeing most cars come out with Brembo now a days lol. Big enough that 18x10 CR kai rims wouldn't fit the front lol. The 18x9.5 LMGT4 fit though.
