    woza01's rear brake kit

    Hey Mate...well, yes and no.....The new MC4 is not an all-in-one caliper...you still need your main caliper for braking. It is simply a much better, stronger designed Handbrake-only caliper. Essentially. Hope this helps. Cheers WG
  3. Hi All, I have for sale a complete set of my AZC Kit (1st Design)......2 Spot Calipers, 2 brackets, and handbrake cable. All yours for $150. Its used obviously. I have also redesigned the setup using Wilwoods New MC4 Caliper. I have just done a production round of those as well...no interest from this forum, but sold plenty to the USA, Canada & Germany recently. I have for sale, the prototype kit ...which includes 2 MC4 calipers, custom Handbrake cable & 2 brackets. yours for $300. Being the prototype, there a few mods i had to do to test the system out, but they are minor and arent noticeable..happy to explain if anyone is interested. Note...you'll pay around $300 alone just for the calipers ! Im happy to do another full batch run, but will need around 8-10 peeps. Cheers Woza

  5. Gday Justin, Ah ok....I'm not familiar with the Elwood setup ! And in regards to the companion flange, it was part of the CV conversion kit I purchased from Stewart Wilkins Motorsport. Cheers & thanks for looking Warren
  6. Hey fellow Aussie Z Owners I have previously developed, and sold kits to add a handbrake to the AZC kit, however due to limitations with the Spot Caliper, it was only partially successful. Wilwood have now released a much improved Mechanical Caliper, and I am offering a kit to allow you to easily add a strong, reliable handbrake to your car (if it has the AZC Kit !) So..I am ready now to start accepting deposits for your kits. * The Full Kit comprises of 2 Brackets (LH & RH), New Handbrake Cable, 2 e-clips, and 2 Brake Hose Retainers. * The Half Kit comprises of 2 Brackets (LH & RH), 2 Brake Hose Retainers. * Full Kit price is AUD$555 + Paypal fee of 2.6%. Total of AUD$560 (postage excluded) * Half Kit price is AUD$320 + Paypal fee of 2.6%. Total of AUD$323 (postage excluded) NOTE : The Kits DO NOT include the Wilwood MC4 Calipers Postage can only be confirmed once i have a set available to package and take to the post office, The brackets are made from 12mm Mild Steel plate, and the postage is calculated on weight....nothing i can do about this unfortunately. So....here's is how i intend on working it... I'm sure you all can appreciate that I cant take a hit by going ahead and getting all the plates and cables done, and then finding some people who ordered have changed their minds. So, i will do it exactly the same way as i did the last time. I will require a AUD$250 deposit, paid into my Paypal account. This will secure your set. Once the kits are ready, and I have confirmed shipping prices, you can pay the Balance, along with the shipping cost, and the brackets will be shipped to you. I appreciate some people may be uncomfortable with this, however it is designed to protect me from being left with merchandise. Feel free to read through the entire blog on the link below (hybridz), or here on AusZCar and you will see that I am trustworthy and true to my word. You will receive what you pay for, and, for piece of mind, all funds will remain in the Paypal account until the packages have been sent. http://forums.hybridz.org/topic/71799-wilwood-rear-handbrake-e-brake-kits/ I have been in touch with both the machinists, and the cable manufacturers, and due to their work loads, production can only start as of 13th March. Kits will be ready approximately 2 weeks after that. So, this allows for plenty of time to build up the 10 orders required, and more if it so happens ! NOTE : Please do not wait till the last minute to place your order - the sooner you place your order, the sooner the '10 set' goal will be reached. From experience, last time, people were reluctant to put their money down, and it spooked others into the same frame of mind. So Rest Easy.... I will keep you fully updated as to the progress of the count. IN SUMMARY..... - 1st Payment of AUD $250 Confirms your order. - 2nd Payment (Balance of Kit + Postage) will be due when Kit is ready for posting - You will be advised of postage price before this time. Once you have paid your deposit, please PM me, with your FULL NAME, email address, and postage address. I will need these to get postage prices when the time comes. My Paypal account is kwgilbert71@gmail.com PS. If for some reason we cant proceed BEFORE manufacture...you will get your money back. Rest Easy ! I'm Happy to answer any questions. Cheers Warren THE FINE PRINT - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY ! * If for some reason we cant proceed BEFORE manufacture...you will get your money back. Rest Easy ! * This kit is designed to work with the existing rear AZC Kit. The seller makes no assumptions that it will fit with any other manufacturers kits. * A small modification (detailed above) may be required to your car. * If you change your mind AFTER production has started, your deposit may be forfeited. Please be 100% sure when ordering. * This kit is designed for Off-Road Use only. By fitting this kit you acknowledge all terms, and absolve the seller of all liability if something goes wrong.
  7. Sorry mate, All brackets are gone. Im happy to email you a .dxf file, and the necessary Drawings to produce a set of your own, however it would probably be a better idea for you to wait untill Dave at AZC finally releases his own S30 Handbrake kit... Cheers Woza01

    woza01's rear brake kit

    Hi Guys... Just found this thread (havent been on here for a while).... Been thinkig a bit more about the Brackets etc etc.... Im now happy to email all the drawings, and an electronix DXF file (for laser cutting) to anyone that needs them for $50. This includes the Handbrake cable drawing, and the manufacturers contact details (he can make the cables without the drawing). Its a small price to pay considering the development work that went into them. Obviously sounds like they might already be doing the rounds...nothing I can do about that I suppose, but the offer is there. Cheers Warren
  9. Send you details ? about my kit or the AZC kit ?....The wilwood spot calipers are VERY light, but unfortunately require constant adjustment, because the pads are only around the size of a 20c piece, so the effectiveness of them relies on constant adjustment. Also forget about replying on the handbrake on really steep slopes....unless you increase the fulcrum on the handbrake lever to get more mechanical advantage ! I have around 8 sets of brackets already cut - left over from the first three batches i did way back then....I simply don't have the time to invest in making the kits available, and certainly not for the $40 profit i was making lol - not that it was every about the money though. If anybody wants a set of cut brackets, then you can have them for $50 plus postage, but you will still need to do all the machining & drilling/tapping, then bend up the cable bracket accurately & weld it, then get the cable made up, which is the most expensive part of the whole kit.... Anyway, I'm sure I've probably put you off, but I'm happy to send you over some raw bracket plates.... Woza
  10. haha...yeah Dave isnt too good at replying to emails is he.....
  11. I looked into patents, and its a minefield...to truly cover the design it would break me financially - Anyway thats life.....to be honest Im not too fussed, as it was never about the money anyway....if I factored in the time invested in development, then production of the few batches,it would be classed as a dead loss anyway lol. I just wanted a handbrake that worked, and wante to help others. So, thanks fufu for your support. I too know the frustration you feel because i know that its been a question asked of the other mob a million times. Id like to think that perhaps my kit had something to do with them finally deciding to produce their own kit, but in the real world, it probably didnt ! lol Anyway, we move on.... My car has progressed well - i hopefully pick it up from the performance shop tsaturday. Anyone thats interested cam see a few vids at various stages of development on YouTube.
