Running two different setup on two different cars

R34 GTT with RB28 i had D2 Racing front 8 pods 356mm and rear 6 pots 330mm with ferrodo pads

the braking is good enough! no problems at all!


and on my other R34GTT with RB26 i'm using R34 GTR Brembo brakes front and rear / project mu discs and pads!

very good braking also... but the D2 are better for braking efficiency!

Does anyone happen to be running porsche brembos on theirs or know anyone who is? Ive seen custom kits in japan using GT3 monoblock 4 piston brakes on rear with 6 piston up front.
Im using brembo F50 with 370mm slotted rotors up front and brembo N1 rear with adapter bracket to fit 370Z 350mm rear slotted discs. Endless CCX pads all around with APP braided lines

Upload pics to a photobucket or imageshack account,then copy and paste forum code.

Just wondering about master cylinder as i am in the process of fitting R35 brembo 380mm allround on my 33. Was looking at Auto select cylinder but very expensive.

Ok. give me about an hour and i should get some pics up hopefully. Thank you for the help. Arent the front rotors 410mm on the 35s? I saw there was someone here in the US that did this conversion for a 350Z but the rear caliper mount spacing is different than ours

Hi Trev

Are you changing the master cylinder at the same time? I swapped mine to a 34 one on the 32 and I think it makes a difference.

Will.

Yeah defo. Probably being alot newer than the old but also it reduces pedal travel. I think the bias is different for those due to the brembos etc. Depends if your APs are 32 specific. My view was if I was changing all the brakes and bleeding the fluid then may as well.

Brembo monobloc racing calipers used in NASCAR racing can be had for cheap on the used market. Don't know much about these, except that they look like the monoblocs on my bike (which are freaking awesome)....anyone know about these? Some people are picking these up and slapping them on their street cars, like this:

h8skyliner - my question would be, what rotors would you use with the porsche calipers - I've seen a few setups like that here in Japan, but my understand is that the rotor thickness is vastly different. For example, I saw someone use a V36 Skyline rear rotor, but that thickness is only 20mm, while the Porsche one is 28mm...which means 8mm less of pad life? And how thick are pads anyway - say if they are only 10mm (1cm) then you only have 2mm of life? Does that make sense?

Asiasi - great idea using R35 Calipers/rotors - keep us posted on how it turns out. I would be interested on what size rotors and what type of calipers you plan to use in the back!

Thanks!

Aki

i'm going with a full Wilwood set up, my tuner has used these as well as others for many years now and they seem to be overloooked by many. He's taken me out in a few cars equipped with the Wilwood's and they pull your face off just the same as any equivalent Ap, Brembo, Alcon set up. Wilwood supply many of the NASCAR teams and perhaps surprisingly to some, one of their high end calipers (each!) comes in at around £2500! Bit outside my budget though that one!

I run Wilwood Superlite 6pot front and 4pot rears on my R32 (Ferredo 3000+ Pads, DBA 35mm front rotors, and finned rear rotors).
Compared to the F40 Brembos I had, these are much better on the track, and fine on the road, and a truckload lighter!

Not sure what your tuner is doing for the hand brake setup for you, But have a look at my setup with the intergrated hand brake on the rear 4pots, It allowed me to run a two piece rotor and ditch the handbrake shoes.

Cheers for the hand brake set up i'll show it to him but i believe we are going for an hydraulic set up. Yep, very happy with my decision going for the Wilwoods, been in and tried many different brake set up's and these are as good or better than the lot of them And being American a fair bit cheaper too!

We are not allowed to have a Hydraulic Handbrake here in NZ if the car is going to be road legal, Hence we had to come up with the lever system.
Post some pics of what you are going to run, I have a bit of a brake fetish! LOL!
