Hi Pete. The standard upright is modified to accept a bracket, the caliper cradle and the AUII-III twin-piston caliper.

As soon as the upright has been modified for clearance, the EL GT 329mm disc bolts straight on. That means the required wheel offset remains standard (+6mm).

I believe these kits are now worth about $2,200, but you'll have to check that with Race Brakes Sydney.

Below are some pics that are on my home PC. Was there anything you particularly wanted to see? They're currently in the garage waiting to go on to the race car, plus there are more pics of the install archived at work.

Here are some more from the photoshoot of the original install. There don't seem to be any from the top looking down. Do any of these show what you're after?

Yep, there's some precision machine work on them, that's for sure.

Hey Sam,

I know I work in the office with you, but I guess others might be keen to know, what's the minimum rim size you can run with these brakes?

Hey Boxer, 17in is the minimum for this kit.

I tried one of the 16in CSA Prowler rims that fit rather snugly over the TASCCO-spec kit from Cebco and it didn't quite fit, whereas the 17in rims are fine (see pics).
