GUESS WHAT GUYS I HAVE A ENGINEER ON BOARD WHO IS KEEN ON MAKING A KIT FOR US

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I'll be going to his workshop on the 21st to play around with some setups and what i need from you guys is this.

used BF XR twin spot caliper
used 322mm BA rotor or territory rotor

He already has a 4 spot willwood caliper with 330mm rotor setup already and has sold over a dozen of them with fantasic performance.

He will get this kit all approved to meet ADR's and kit will be ABS compatible as well.

He asked if we can get a minimum of 5 people on board and put there money were there mouth is and start making them up. Of course he will have 1 on a car tested and get the owner to test it properly and give feedback to us all.


How much are we looking at and what calipers would they come with? Could be interested will just have to get the cash together.

Twin spot BF XR caliper and rotor will be decided once he mounts everything.

Guys dont worry ill have pictures and make sure a set is installed on a car and being used and get him to report back to you all and give a honest oppinion.

I said to the engineer to keep it as cost affective as possible yet have great braking performance. So dont worry boys i will fight to get it as cost affective as possible yet having good reliable components.

Yeah but that is my point if you can get it without the calipers you would save heaps as willwood calipers arnt the cheapest to buy. You can get calipers that will do the same job for alot cheaper.
