that kit seems more elusive than this one!
i'm not sold unfortunately i'll keep hankering after the Wilwoods Razz

I came to your humble array of towns and villages last week and spent the week there in St David's
would have been cool to meet you!

can I ask what's is with the dodgy welsh spellings? didn't have a f-ing clue we had fun trying to pronounce a few of them though!
and by the time i'd seen the english part of the road sign i was looking for it was too late to see what it actually said! LOL
but I have ARAF down to a tee! not that it helped me with the road signs mind!

I'm a long way East of St Davids LOL

ash's kits aren't elusive, he's making a new batch of brackets and rotors & Bells, unfortunately the discs are more expensive now, though Niall on the OC found that a Punto Abarth disc will fit with these brackets, just need the pcd altering to pug and the centre bore taking out to fit the pug hub.

Personally I'd look into moving to a smaller 300 mm disc to increase the wheel choices, my wheels fit without any spacers Shock

I'm looking at my brackets, I've no idea what they're from but they work with the rally design disc, which is stupid money.

It looks as if I only have to mill a small amount from the mounting lugs in order to use them with standard discs.

I did email Phil a while back requesting a drawing or to purchase his one remaining bracket

Aren't there any technical drawings online for the wilwood calipers?

Do they just use standard gti6 discs or some other disc? I'm pretty sure I've seen dimension sheets for the std discs online in the past.


Just do what I did and measure a knuckle, get the drawing for your caliper so you know mounting points etc and then design your own brackets. It's fairly simple at the end of the day, just a bit nerve wrecking if you've never done it before.

Yeah, they look like the original brackets, I redesigned them for the ones I made (originals top right):



Unfortunately whilst my brackets were easy for me to make, it does make them a lot more effort for most shops that'd take them on, especially if they're using manual machines.
Exactly that. I'm a toolmaker and mostly only use manual machines and there is a lot rotary table work to get your ones. Our workshop would be proper expensive.

It's even worse, as a couple of the curves are compound so they're not even constant radius LOL

Yeah, that's why my poor little manual machines are dying out. CNC is often neater, cheaper and much quicker. Maybe I should retrain...

Well, once I've got CAD re-setup I can do a drawing and then either send it to whoever wants it so they can get it made or get a group buy going and get a batch made somewhere that'd be a cheaper price per bracket I'd hope.

Ideally I'd prefer a bracket to take measurements off of to copy but could get dimensions another way if enough people wanted them to justify the effort.

It took me longer to warm the head and motors up, then wash down after machining, than it did to actually mill the brackets LOL
