JSK/Wilwood 4 pot 2 piece disk group buy
Posted 12 September 2007 - 03:31 PM
After speaking with Stef, I've (personally) decided not to go ahead with this kit.
I can purchase the Calipers, Hats & Rotors cheaply enough here & make/machine the hats & caliper brackets to suit my desired setup/application myself.

Alternatively Lurch might be kind enough to machine us all up some brackets, what do you say big fella??

and i have the money sitting here for whatever works out best $$ wise, be that parts locally machined or flown in with parts bought locally, so even if its just saving money on postage count me in
I would of thought for JSK the rear park brake wouldn't have been that hard since they already know the offset of the rotor from their existing braket...

(& I'm not interested in in organizing anything either).

As for the calipers and brackets Lurch has already looked into these here in Oz and has a good lead on the remaining parts which aren't very expensive.
Who's in still so we can start to organize it all??
For those of you that haven't seen them here are some pics

I don't have a contact for making anything (ie caliper brackets for the front).
I suggest whoever purchases a kit to either buy the front brackets from JSK or make them yourselves.
Wilwood Rotors & Calipers are available from places like Meridian Motorsport:

just wondering which hubs are needed for them also, as some of the stuff on hybridz iv'e read says u need 280z hubs, which would mean late 260z hubs? or its all the same? and which brake master cylinder is recommended?
with the calipers i have a hard time trying to work out what all the differences are that i care about with the different types wilwood have, specially since they post up left and right versions...
i think there should be a set cut off date for the group buy for in a months time or sooner. pm me where you want any money deposited

I only put the names that have shown interest to this point, if you have changed your mind and will not be participating in the group buy could you please let me know either by posting or pm'ing me, thanks.
I will get onto Meridian sometime today or tomorrow to get pricing on the calipers and rotors.

This Brake Group buy is too good to pass up on, I hope you guy's get the numbers for the go-ahead

I have given him the part numbers of the calipers and rotors that we need and he is going to cross reference them to see what else we could use, possibly with the bracket kit. He suggested the Outlaw calipers which are actually cheaper but are equipped with dust seals so are lower maintanance, however if your intention is purely for race then the Wilwoods will be fine as otherwise you will melt the seals.
Again I apologise for the delay, but want you to know that I am trying to do the right thing by everyone by getting as much info and facts as I can before we throw any money away.
