Default 9,5 inch brake setup

Hi,

I found some info on the forum but not everything that i need for the 9,5 inch brake setup.
I now have build a set and want to give everybody the informaton that i have.

Caliper part number: 120-11575 wilwood partnumber.
Disc part number: 09.5004.10 brembo disc. For a Hyundai excell
Bolt pattern Hyundai disc: 104mm m10x1,25
Bolt pattern mini/metro drive flange: 73.02mm m10x1,5

You can use metro or mini drive flange. Using the metro drive flang you have to make a spacer thats 28mm thick with mini drive flange it must be 24mm thick.

Some pictures:
Brembo pattern:


Mg metro pattern:


Calliper bolts directly to the hub



Spacer: i have them made at a local shop
Front


Rear


Spacer bolted to the disc (with 4 bolts)


Flange bolted to the spacer


Disc assembly bolted on the shaft



Calliper bolted on


The end product


pads


I have driven with the setup and its brakes good. Maybe have to buy some better pads but did not have the time to look into.

Only problem: with full lock the calliper hits the tie bar. So 2 options: 1. take the bleed nipple out so maybe that it doesnt hit the tie bar anymore. 2. order a set of "droppers" from KAD. Tha the tie bar will sit lower. I have ordered a set and waiting to recieved them.

Good Luck,

Sebastiaan

Clever. What size wheels are you running? And I'm intrigued by the tie-bar dropper - never heard of this and can't see on KAD website - can you share a link?

Im Running 13 inch wheels. I Have More room to the inside of the rim than with the metro 4 pots callipers.
I Will post a photo later with the "droppers" buts it a photo with mini hubs but they also Make them for the metro hubs.
They did not design the droppers for the callipers hitting problem. They design them to keep the roll in the body when the car is lowered.

The KAD "droppers"
Text from a KAD employee: "they are designed to correct the roll centre of the car when you lower the suspension ride height. It does this by keeping the bottom arm straighter".

Would be interesting to understand the total cost for doing this brake conversion and maybe the weight of the new parts. If it comes out cheaper and lighter than KAD etc, then it's got to be better me thinks.

I asked him, but it was somewhere around 700,00 all included, being slightly more than 600,00.

Here we go:
http://www.superfastminis.com/mini_t...brake_kit1.htm
Same kit complete 1150 usd but other callipers

I paid this:
Disc: 55 euro but old stock. Normally brembo cost 100 euro but hyundai disc online ar cheaper

Callipers: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270926814586...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
280 usd
80 usd shipping
30 euro import
So total 365 euro total.

Spacers: 200 euro. Machineryshops ar very expansibe here. I think that it could be a little bit less but did notnhad the time to earch for a other shop. I bought it at a shop thats 5 minutes from my home.

Brake lines 40 euro

Makes 660 euro in total.

Thw callipers here where more expansive even with import and sending cost from the usa.

Good price? Dont know the price from KAD

I think the expensive parts here in the UK are the willwood calipers. They seem to be much more expensive, the rest would be cheaper, so maybe about the same cost..

Hi Sebastiaan,

Does the braking differs much from a 8.4 inch 4 pot brake setup? Do you use the original mini pedalbox or something else?

Looks interesting! I have been thinkink about the superfastmini kit but its quite expensive seeing the exchange rates...
