I don't think I'm gonna get material for brackets till next week, Metal by the Foot, Inc. is where I usually go for small quantities since I can drive there. Thinking about it now, I might make one piece stepped spacers for my wheels and the rotors both, if plastic melts.

I think my konigs use 73mm bore? Fricken 3" 1/2 wall is $40 for a foot. Still won't easily fit in my lathe. Doesn't have to be perfect, I'll just mill the bitches in softjaws.

metalmerchant on ebay is always pretty good

re: plastic parts near brakes

I've seen the little plastic center caps about twice the size of a quarter melt and fall out of stock front wheels at the track a few years ago. Can't recall what type of car...

Might have been a pontiac G5/chevy cobalt?



Those don't even need to be hot to fall out. I lost three of 4 inside 75K miles.

Cheap ebay rotors I linked a page or so back are a go, they are indeed 294mm non drilled and slotted rotors as I hoped, and they got here from Canada in the same time as the brake lines from 949.

Brake lines from 949racing are three piece, and I am ******* hot.

  • Simple one piece hard line attachment
So why does it use 3AN to 1/8NPT adapter? I could have ordered this **** myself off ebay for half the price.



******* bullshit.

Overall length of each is 16.5", from hard line fitting to the end of the NPT/3AN adapter, in case anyone wants to DIY. They're reddish orange wrapped, too.

I still think you could do a m10x1.0 to NPT adapter, then just use NPT/NPT brake line for half the price. I don't want to price more **** at the moment.

<p>Most brake line is 3an. And you really should get DOT approved brake line.</p><p>I'm going to call my local shop and price it out again. I'll probably just do that.</p>
