Send them for a test fit. I don't care who. Be sure before you start knocking them out.

Come to think, ChattavegasSE has an SVT kit on his car now. He might be willing to put his old calipers on those 300mm rotors & give you a comparison as well as a test fit - all super secret, of course.

Just a thought.

See, theres a whiner now. lol J/k

If I do that it can't just be anyone as the studs the get pressed into the hub require some drilling. Therefore it has to be BigJim or DemonSVT as it would take one of them merely 20minutes to unbolt one bracket and stick one of these on to see if it fits. Too easy. However, neither of them seems to have the time now...

Ugh, this couldnt be getting close to production at a worse time for me. With the subframe broke and me looking at a lot of rear suspension removal, I figure I might as well replace some of the other rear suspension pieces (a la bradness) while Im doing so. Unless I just re-install all the worn stock pieces, I have to spend the cash. Which means none for this at the moment.

I need to get freaking hired by Pfizer already! Crappy intern pay isnt even covering the cost of what I have to fix, let alone brakes

Well, at least Ive kept my mouth shut and 'ed in private. Until I have the $$$ to back my interest, I like to keep my mouth closed, for obvious reasons.

The production kits will require new studs? (not whining, just curious)

I say go ahead and double check the fitment then start the GB. Just to make sure. Also, what about the studs that need to be pressed in? Thanks again Tom.

I could probably send you the rear bracket, but it needs the threads tapped. I could probably send Big Jim the front bracket since he doesn't have the rears and you don't have the fronts.
Or if Demon gets back in contact with me I could send both to him and he could do them at the same time. So let me let him contact me with his answer first and if he doesn't have the time then I'll just have to pay the postage to two different places.

For the rest of you...no more questions...lol

I've got how-to files written already but I have to add in pictures to the word document before they are ready. When I get these test-fitted, and I know they will work....then I'll have someone host the word document and you can all download and read to see what you are getting into.

Take deposits to cover material costs, or better still, put together the GB with payment in full required up front, then make a production run with little/no risk to you.





But PM me first, so i can be #1 on the group buy.




HEY!! I started this thread!! Back of the line you northern hi-jacker!!

Well if I can pick up the 300mm rotors from the parts store, then I can test fit it. Might can drive over there if need be.
