Can it be ? Can we finally have rear wilwoods with an ebrake ? This should be a big deal then ......has anybody been able to do this yet ? I know arizona had a rear e brake caliper but I don't think it was very effective .

 

Too bad I already purchased my rear wilwoods .

I just got a reply from Gabriel.

Quote:

"It is already available.  We have them ready to ship. Only thing we are waiting on is the custom E-brake cables to finish production.

The calipers are original Wilwood calipers, with a built-in E-brake assembly.  It's not part of their regular lineup, but rather a special caliper they built for the rally guys. Calipers are as pictured, and use alight spring to keep the E-brake hardware from rattling about. It's a far superior system to their single pot E-brake from years ago. That setup was noisy and never worked for crap.  The new system is super coolant doesn't look any different than their normal 4 piston calipers." unquote

I sent him another email back asking if their E-brake cables were sized for the different lengths seen on the earlier S30's vs the late ones.  Still waiting on that answer. I'm pretty interested if I know they have the right E-brake cable for my late model '77.  I guess the question I haven't asked is if the brakes work with the stock E-brake cable.  More to come.

I've been contemplating producing calipers kinda like this, with some kind of mechanical lever system, I figured someone would have done it by now -- appears they did.

 

I wanted to do it a little differently though; I might still if I feel motivated...

Gabriel at TTT indicated that the E-brake cable they are making custom for these brakes is from the yoke on the center mechanism across.  It does not include any of the front-to-rear part of the assembly.  The stock e-brake cable in that area will not work with these brakes.  The first cables are designed off a 240Z so, if any of the 280Z's need a different length, he said they'd provide that also.

Question: can you remove the pads without disturbing the caliper?

 

Answer: The Quick-Clips also accommodate easy pad access without caliper removal. Brake pad compounds are available for the full range of sport and competition applications.

I'm in the same boat you are ........the only way to cut the cost is to find someone who wants your arizona rear setup ...take that cash and put it towards the TTT setup ........it's a great setup just a little too late to the party for most here I'm sure .
