Build Thread

  1. hello! i have been looking for information on how to rebuild the brakes on a 1995 r33 gtr. i would like to rebuild them myself, but i am having a heck of a time finding anything other than replacement seals. i am looking for replacement/ upgraded pistons, torque specs, the gasket that goes between the caliper halves, if any. i have searched for any kind of documentation on this, but i don't seem to find anything other than engine manuals. on the bremboparts.com site, they only offer replacement pads. no pins, shims, or anything else. does anyone have, or know of, a walkthrough of how to rebuild the calipers? does anyone know of a place to order replacement parts? as these are brembos that were widely used, i really thought all this stuff would be more readily available.
  2. Nismo R35 GT3 Brembo Racing Caliper 2 sets front calipers, new and unused Suit high performance modification to any GTR Skyline with limited modifications for adaptors etc. Perfect application for 'Time Attack' build Item location is UK, worldwide shipping available and as part of purchase cost. Price for 1 x pair ( LHF + RHF ) GPB£3250 - AUS$5850 Happy to discuss further with technical support, information and pictures +447552494484
  3. For sale: I've got a pair of R32 gtst front brake calipers and GTR size rotors 324mm with HFM brand caliper extension brackets with all bolts needed. Asking $200 for all. Pick up Blue Mountains NSW. Can post at buyers expense.
  4. Ok so i decided that I need to sell off my old brake setup as I'm going to be keeping the brembos i have on the car if I ever decide to sell it. These are 33 gtst brakes that I had on my car for approx 3 years and have been in storage for another 2 years. They are in great condition with no tears or damage to the dust boots on each caliper. The calipers have been painted in VHT gold (trying to replicate 34 gtr brembo colour) caliper paint this has stood the test of time and with a bit of a cleanup before you install they will look as good as new. I will also include a half empty can of the same paint for any touchups you may wish to do but these dont have any markings on them. Comes as a complete kit, Calipers, discs, lines, rotors (near new RDA slotted rotors for the front and machined standards for the rear) and a complete set of new brake pads front and rear. The Pads are Bendix Ultimate rears and QFM HPX's on the front, and of course all the associated nuts bolts and washers to go with them to make it a bolt in affair Its all boxed up and ready to go but be aware if I courier this in the box that its in its FKN HEAVY like id say 50+kg as its all tightly boxed up. Asking price is $400 and can be delivered locally to Penrith or Liverpool area 2pm - 3pm weekdays, Or I can arrange shipping (will split the boxes front to rear if needed to make shipping easier) Located Penrith, Sydney Want any details send me a PM or pm for phone number. Now for the pics in no real order Machined Rears Rear Calipers Rear no 2 Rear dust boots Fronts Front Rotor Front Rotor wear All boxed up, covered and ready to go
  5. I have my old 350Z Touring Brake Kit for sale. I upgraded to OEM Brembo during my ownership. Front rotors and pass have plenty of life. DBA slotted rotors. Front pads are Hawk ceramic. Will include brand new set of Ferodo DS2500 pads too. Rears are OEM originals. Rotors and pads. All lines and dust shields. Calipers included. Pickup only Doncaster 3108. $300 Note: I am prepared to separate the rotors and pads. As a bonus I’ll throw in a set of calipers and lines as well ?
  6. Anyone in Melb have an old pair lying around? **not warped Cheers in advance
  7. I'm chasing a full set of R33 gtst brakes - calipers, rotors, pads and brake lines - for a conversion into an HR31. PM me or phone/text on 0415344834. Cheers Stephen
  8. hey guys just a quick question and its probably been asked a thousand times but im in a hurry as i have to take it to the mechanics tomorrow... im replacing my 33 gtst's rotors to slotted ones and the front brake pads need changing..., im going to change all 4 brake pads at the same time? read somewhere on forums that it might be a bad idea to change both the pads and rotors at the same time? is there any truth to this... What is the best brake fluid to buy before i go and get my brakes done so i can get that replaced too? I read on the braking forum that Bendex Ultimates might be the best to go for brakes can anyone recommend a good place locally to go to get these at a decent price for all 4 brake pads?..... Edit : i got quoted 350$ for a pair of EBC redstuff....does this sound about right for just a pair? am i better off going bendex?

  10. WTB SYDNEY - R33 Brake Shims front and rear Hi All, Just wanting to see if anyone is selling R33 GTST brake shims. The old owner of my car binned them and I would like to replace them. I know Kudos and Taarks have them new but I would be fine with a second hand set.
  11. Project Mu Brake Shoes Hi All, For sale is a set of project mu brake shoes (D1 Spec) I bought these from RHD Japan under the assumption that they were the normal shoes but they are a higher temp spec and I don't think they will suit my needs as such. Part number is IS200A (D1 Spec 50-450 Degrees) I paid $240 for them but will take $180 for a quick sale - Will ship at buyers cost - Located in Blacktown NSW - Note they have been opened for inspection only
  12. Hey everyone I am having trouble trying to find rear brake rotors for my R34 GT non turbo, everywhere I have called and looked list the turbo brake rotors (297mm diameter) but the ones on my car are 265mm. I understand that the GT-V model came out with the turbo brakes and I’m guessing that’s why they list the NA’s with a 297mm rear rotor. if anyone has an idea as to where I can get a pair or even some part numbers it would be much appreciated thanks.

  15. r32 gktech braided brake lines on 32 gtr anyone got a picture of how they are mounted? I know the kit isn't an exact copy of the stock lines. I have mine going straight from caliper, over top of hub where the top ball joint is then into the stock hard line coming from inner guard. it doesn't look right to me. also I am unsure where to use that black bracket holder thing on the line. I have a 32 gtr with brembo brakes. could someone please assist? I have googled the shit out of this and am not getting anywhere.

  18. R33 gtst brake upgrade Hi guys, First post on SAU so try and be patient if I'm not asking quite the right stuff. I'm about to start building a low comp rb25det (cyl 6 is gone) I've just bought and before all that extra power happens I'm needing to upgrade the brakes so what brake setups have gtst owners gone with? I'm targeting 420-500whp and I'd prefer to have too much stopping power than not enough. And whilst I'm here what other safety mods should I be doing going for that power? Thank you all in advance,
  19. Full Floating Brake Rotors For custom made brakes there is an option to get full floating rotors rather than the usual solidly bolted together two piece jobs, dedicated race car. Has anyone experience with this type, good, bad? Worth getting?

  21. hey guys i just recently bought an r33 gtr v-spec and at light braking pressure at speeds around 40kph and under i have an extremly loud squeak from the front brakes i have been told that brembo's are known for squeaking like this but would like to try and fix it the calipers are factory and it has 2 peice front discs unsure of brand i think theyre aftermarket and unsure of the pads i have been told to just try blowing the area with a blow gun or greasing the shims just want to confirm any help would be great thanks guys
  22. Hi guys, This is a really basic question but I can't find a clear answer: Is there a good way to change front brake pads without removing calipers? I read somewhere to turn old pad sideways and lever against the disc using it. I've tried this but it's still really hard going, the pistons are really tight. I have removed the brake fluid reservoir top too. Any tips on how to do this easier? Do I need a special tool? The car is an R34 GTT with the standard Sumitomo calipers.
  23. hey guys i have a 1993 r33 gtst auto that ive just bought now when i start the car especially in the mornings or after its been sitting for a while the car wont start without applying throttle to get her going then the revs picks up for a bit then slowly goes down then goes to stall i give it a small rev then everythings fine again and it will run fine untill i press the brake pedal the cars revs go right down and if i press the brake pedal really fast and repeatability the car will stall ...also under small load or when my foot is on the brake pedal my car misfires sometimes any help on this issue would be great thanks
