  1. 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.
  2. R35 GTR Brakes onto at R34 GTR. Who's done it? Hey Guys, I'm looking to upgrade the factory 34 GTR brakes. Currently i'm looking at fitting a full set of R35 brakes and i wanted to know; *If anyone on SAU has done it? *Did they have issues with the brake bias between the front and rear and if so how was it solved? *Is any modification required to make factory handbrake work with the R35 brakes? *Who did they get they get to make the mounting brackets (preferably in NSW)? thanks in advance.
  3. Have a full set of brembo calipers. Fronts new Rears used Current series used in gt sprint and endurance, nismo r35 gt3. Front XBO.64.01/02 Rear Xbo.L2.53/54 $8000 + freight
  4. Hey everyone, I've got an R34 GTT manual turbo from an auction. The goal is to get it road registered in WA but I've ran into some issues and I need some help. I took it for a test drive today and the following happened: All 4 wheels/brakes siezed after driving approx 3km with no issues and an idle warm up. Smelt burning and saw smoke coming from engine bay, passenger side, but no drastic change in temp on gauges. never happened when idle testing. Idling poorly after driving Things that I know need to be fixed on the car prior to this happening: No immobilizer and a lot of loose wiring around the column (pictured) Fans and AC don't blow out Needs wheel allignment Needs new clutch, struggles going into gears etc. Needs new gearbox oil The plan was to get the immobilizer installed tomorrow but it now has to go to a mechanic to get these new issues fixed. I would be grateful for any ideas and advice.
  5. I am in the middle of fitting my D2 6 pots to the front of my 33 GTR. I have the drivers side on, no problem. Passenger side, i have put the disk on, held it on with wheel nuts then fitted the caliper. The disk is extremely close to the inside brake pad. When i spin the disk it spins freely until a certain point then gets stiff. I can still push it through by hand with a little bit of force then it loosens up again. Is it going to be OK like this? If i drive it will it just wear the pad enough to stop it from rubbing? I really don't know what else to do. The washers that come with it to space it are no good as they just push the pad even closer to the rotor. Any ideas?
  6. So last night i took my car out for the first time for a mountain run and it wasnt great, brakes were not up to par and cornering resulted in lots of understeer and generally very sloppy. I know next to nothing about setting up suspension properly, all of the suspension is stock as far as i'm aware and i have coilovers on there, it squeaks when i go over bumps currently (i'm assuming bushes are worn out) and the brakes are 4 pot front and 2 pot rear (m spec stock brakes i think), i also have 225 tyres stretched over 9" wheels all round (getting 235's soon) my question is what should i be looking at getting suspension wise (adjustable arms etc) and what's a good brake upgrade for a 32?
  7. Hey guys i wanna do a full caliper rebuild but can't seem to find brake piston's for rear only front? are the rear piston's same as the front?
  8. Full set (front and rear) Mitsubishi Evo 9 Brembo calipers. All Brembos from Evo 5-9 are the same. Pick up from 3181.
  9. Hi people. Finally got my Gtr rebuilt and on the road. I now have 310awkw but I need better brakes. I do not want to upgrade to 6pots yet as I mainly do daily drives but I want to go on the track once in a while. i was wondering what are the best pads to put on this car for now?
  10. Just wondering if these will need conversion lines brake lines? They're the 2 pot opposed piston calipers, car already has internal ebrake. Doesn't look like the banjo bolts on the current set up want to fit into the z32 rears, just tried to fit them and the banjo bolts are extremely long and don't seem to want to fit nicely. I believe the z32 shares the rears with r33 gtst and r32 GTR. Thanks everyone !
  11. Hi all, been trawling through pages and pages and I can't find answers to all of my questions so I'm hoping to get some help in this thread. Background, I have a 2002 M35 Autech Axis that is due for a brake change (front pads and rotors are gone). I've managed to find a set of 350Z Brembos (cause why replace when you can upgrade) for a decent price and am just trying to get some more information before making the jump. From my digging, this is what I've found: Should be a direct bolt on however R34 GTT threads mention modification to the dust fan / bolt but unsure if the Brembos will face the same problems Information points to that the 18" Autech wheels might not fit but can't find confirmation Have seen no mention to the upgrade affecting ABS #justdoit What I wanted to know are the following: How bolt on is bolt on? Will the same changes need to done as per the R34 GTTs? Is there a guide somewhere specific to the Brembos? The kit comes with calipers, rotors and lines. Will that be all I need besides the pads? Anyone to confirm the 18" Autech wheels will/won't fit the Brembos Thanks! - Yang

  13. Hello, I just got my car out of the garage as its been stored most of winter and been driving it. I then noticed my brake pedal was hard to press and pretty wooden/stodgy. The car still stops but it wont lock up or kick in ABS. There is no ABS light. I think its the booster but I looked for a vacuum leak but could locate one. If its the check vavle in the booster where is this and how can I fault find. Any help be great. Thanks
  14. 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
  15. R33 G-TR Hey guyz, Once again i must the masters of this devine site to shed some knowledge upone me. I am replacing the rotors on my r33. So i have ordered 2 blank front rotors locally but now i might be able to get a deal for 2 piece rotors of the internet but the prollem is that i cant get my money back for those locally ordered rotors. So i was thinking maybe i could put the 2 piece rotors on the front and the blank locally bought rotors on the back. I wanted to know whether the front and rear rotors are the same or they have different dimensions? Both the local and 2 piect of the net say they are for the front, if anyone knows about this plz let me know. Oh and have only taken the front ones off atm. They are 324mm and 30mm thick. Cheers guys.
  16. Brake Terminology, Technical and Trends Hi Guy's, I have a favourite saying "No matter how much you polish a turd, its still a turd". I've been away from the brake industry for a while but some things never change. The polishing of products to convince people to buy. I thought it might be a good idea to share some technical terms and some of the science behind brakes so you can compare apples for apples as they truely are behind the glossy marketing and verbal diarrhea. I have no intention of naming or bagging out any brands or manufacturers (unless they piss me off) so lets keep it clean and educational. Brake Pads I’ve been fortunate enough to have been factory trained with a couple of friction lining manufacturers around the world. NAO, Sintered metal, carbon metallic and low metal high carbon pads. One thing is for sure, its personal. Every driver has a different perception of what is good braking. Why we have so many arguments ;-) The most basic of identifiers for brake lining characteristics is the good old SAE J661 hot and normal (cold) friction coefficient test which is the codes stamped on the pad backing plate. They will look like; EF, FF, GF, GG etc printed in between a whole heap of numbers. The other numbers refer to batch codes and friction formula used. The USA and Europe require this detail to be marked on the pads to comply to various legislations. SAE J661 - Friction identifiers. Normal Friction , Hot Friction is the order of the codes E = 0.25 to 0.35 mu F = 0.35 to 0.45 mu G = 0.45 to 0.55 mu H = 0.55 and above The USA (mainly Ca and Wa) have introduced a hazardous materials legislation called Chapter 70.285 RCW which I have had the joy of participating in for compliance. They've identified a number of ingredients in brake linings that are polluting water ways and making their fish glow in the dark. Copper reductions is a major topic in the USA as this is one of the main offenders. As with the bans on asbestos many years ago, the same appears to be happening with Copper. Another topic is the European R90 compliance. Its been around for a long while but is gaining more focus locally. Possibly because sales guys have run out of things to talk about. R90 is all about driving comfort. NHV (Noise, Vibration, Harshness) is the focus. This is directed towards regular road pads of which most OEM's are compliant and aftermarket no so much. Key metrics for measuring performance; I'll add some more detail about these soon. Torque response (initial bite) Peak effectiveness (peak friction @ time/temp/pressure) Release speed (speed to fully retract) Modulation factor (compressibility and a combo of above) Pad wear A good driver will understand these metrics and will be able to adjust his methods to suit in order to achieve the desired outcome whether it be sprints, endurance, off road, or just regular road driving. I hope this terminology helps. Please feel free to ask any questions. No such thing as a dumb question. Cheers DBASteve
  17. 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,
