Recently I picked up a 280z to have a driver, so this car is being more straight up race car built instead of dual purpose. I'll still be able to take it down to the local coffee meets and car shows, just not the driver type I was wanting it to be. So it's all about weight this time. 2600 race ready is my goal and with as much power as I have I'm sure I'll be asked for more cage this year!

Got all this put together today. Caliper ended up perfect after I had to shim the inner bearing out. The hearings are closer together on the gm stuff so the outer bearing was binding on the spindles taper just before getting tight enough. So I found .030 worth of shim for a pinion, this was enough to get proper preload without bearing binding and proper caliper alignment

I'm pleased with the results, you can actually feel the weight difference in just spinning the rotor.

That's pretty sweet man. I never would have even thought to look at the GM hubs, looks nice and shiny.
