Battery isn´t installed yet. That plastic thing would be only cover to avoid electric shortcuts, but maybe I change that when I´m doing it.


Someone asked about those Wilwood calipers earlier, but I ordered from here: http://www.rallydesign.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=11370


I can´t recommend before I have driven my car, mut it feels that mechanical handbrake got enought power for parking brake. (maximum vehicle weight 750Kg) is mentioned, but I don´t know what is REAL problem when caliper is made from basic 4-spot Wilwood Powerlite, and hydraulic braking power is enought.

With those disc width 0.35-0.50" or 0.79-0.86", it is not a real "racing car" caliper for sure.


I´m sure those can be fitted to 15" wheels. My current setup is 278x10 mm rear disc. Caliper adapter is my own design.

Driveshaft is not ready yet. When its done it should be driveable, but there is no rush to drive it. All depends on weather, because its winter now :)

Maybe dynotune with trailer. So it is possible to break the engine before summer :D


Today small engine tune and getting it warm. It runs smoother. Have to fix couple of small leaks now. (injector 5 fuel rail and turbo water return flange)
