anyone heard of ksport.com.au
they can make a kit for the eseries ,
The kit would cost approx $4000 for 330mm front and rear, $4300 356mm front/330mm rear and $4600 356mm front and rear plus freight.
These prices are only a estimate and may well cost more.
It'd have to be more, wouldn't it ???
To me, looks like they normally cater for AUI and later - they still need to provide front uprights machined to suit, along with a hub to fit their front disc rotors.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

Have you looked how much Ford charge for their premium brake set up? And that is when they are making money off you buying the rest of the car...

Why don't you build a kit for less? Once you have to start dealing with no sales (because E series owners are tight asses and in reality their cars are worth f**k all and they don't wanna spend their cars value on brakes), having to design the kit and process to make sure your product is safe for use, having to ensure quality control over every piece that goes out, having to replace products under warranty, having to pay out professional liability insurance (god forbid insurance over premises and workers comp if you need to employ others), pay for all the machinery and wear and tear once you start making all these kits, I doubt you will end up with the cheap product you dream of. Ohh yeah, then you have to pay for the bits and pieces you actually sell...

There is a big difference between running a business and a backyard operation.

Is that because you're a tight a*** who doesn't want to have to fork out for new wheels? :lol: Haha, but seriously, why do you want to keep E series offset? There is a plethora of wheels available for later offsets that will clear brakes/weigh less/look better (whatever your aim is).

f**k people complaining about how much it costs to play with your car. If you don't like it, pick another hobby, or build your own kit like ef_falcon_95 is...

Wow, starting to remember why is stopped using these kinds of sites, because i want to keep an e series offser i must be pov? As for the wheels na ill be getting new ones anyway, but they make them to suit what offset you want. I just like to keep some of the things that makes the car that bit different. Im not interested running around with a wheel that you see on every other skyline or commo.

Its about personal preference.

Sarcasm; the lowest form of wit and came as a result from you complaining about the cost of brakes...

Nothing against getting what wheels you want made - but you still fail to mention why you would limit your brake selection options to those that suit E series offset? If they can make them any offset you still get the wheels you want...keeping E series offset to be different doesn't make sense, surely that is what you are spending a s**t of money getting wheels made is doing?

And apologies for the potentially harsh reply - I have to deal with people on a daily basis complaining about the cost of things they don't understand, so really annoys me when someone looks at a few bits of metal and fails to take into account all the ancillaries and work that has had to go into actually getting those few bits of metal to the table in the first place.

I understand quite well, im not worried about spending money on my car, do i think someof these brake packages are asking too much? Yep. But what can you do. As i said ill wait till my car is actually running before spending big money on them, if you look at my build you will see my car has no engine, no spring etc etc. Why spend big money on rotors etc that will prob go rusty fromt sitting around and not moving till the engine and wiring is finished :/ seems fair.

And again its my preference to keep e series, ill prob end up spending more keeping e series offset but it will be what i want

Going off their website prices, they'd have to throw in machined E series uprights, and hubs for virtually free.
