Doesn't look like it.

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.

I sent him an email last week regarding the park brake caliper bracket but am still to get a response, like I said as soon as I know you guys will know.

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

I'm still up for whatever as long as it has mechanical rear brakes so i have no issues later on with rwc's etc

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...

Guys, I suggest you organize this yourself as it looks doubtful a group by will happen.
(& I'm not interested in in organizing anything either).

Ye look I'm still waiting on a response from this guy, so it's up to you guys what you want to do, I'm not in any rush so it's easy for me I guess, I will however shoot off another email before the end of the week.

News just to hand................ he will make the rear single spot hand brake caliper brackets as well, total cost for the adaptor kits, both front and rear ( not including rotors and calipers ) with the discount will be $638.40 plus $38 shipping fee.

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

Stef,
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:

count me in for both front and rear brackets :D is that shipping fee including the one to my door? or where abouts are you located?

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'm keen.  I'll see if I can get some quotes on what the discs and callipers will cost me over the next few days.  If they're not too expensive then I'll go ahead with it for sure.  Also interested in Zedevan's question about the front hubs?

The list so far:

XRQTR
Zedevan
Scando
eddii
MyZisslow

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.

Did a fair bit of research yesterday and the callipers in this kit are no bigger than what I'm already running on the front.  I can't justify spending that sort of money just to upgrade my rears so I'm afraid I'm going to have to pull out of the group buy.  I hope this doesn't stuff it up for the rest of you, sorry.

Guys sorry that I've taken some time, anyway I have spoken to Daniel at Meridian Motorsports and after chatting to him I think we may need to change things a little, he advised me that the Wilwoods do not have dust seals. This being the case they need to be rebuilt at each pad change but more importantly they will not pas ADR if you choose to go down that path.

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.

Cheers
Stef

Thought I read some where on Hybrid Z that Willwood do make some calipers with dust seals. I'll see if I can find the posts.

Looks like Willwood Billet DynaPro calipers come with dust seals :)
