Galaxy Quest.



Very sexy work. I like your "bolt on" approach.

This opens up alot for us.

Thank you!

Are you sure this also works for the ST205 because the brake rotors are much larger and not floating.

Must have gotten deleted? It was in red "brakes only work for 185".

I am currently working to solve st205/165 a well.

1. The rear rotor I.D. - parking brake

Thanks a bunch! :D



Damn it, i got sick last night and keep forgetting i have the numbers and pictures. I'll upload tonight.


Thanks for the pictures. The numbers would be great when you get a chance. Will help me figure out a Wilwood hat/rotor combination that I can use for the back with the Highlander hubs.

Thought I'd just say, that this is a top notch conversion. I believe that is one that definitely took a little longer than normal to get right. Congratulations.

Of note, this now opens up the st205 front brake kit using the altezza/supra 296x32mm disc with standard caliper location. I think some investigation is required ;)
Of course this now renders the st205 rear caliper upgrade null, unless people don't mind redrilling the PCD and opening up the centre bore to fit the hub. It is possibly worth it as rear brake disc changes are minimal :)

Great work! This conversion will be spread worldwide i'm sure :)

Cheers
Dave

On the rears i'm looking into a bolt on rotor, just waiting for it to show up.

I don't want to lose my Endless rotors because of this :doh:

so as reading...what needs to be changed is just the hub to make it 5x114.3 ..uses st185 bearings/axles/spindle but uses different rotors due to the changed from 5x100. if so, i believe it will be able to adapt to the porsche brembo due to the same location of everything besides the bolt pattern

If your using sti rotors the issue is the center bore. You can buy the same sized sti discs in 5x114. This problem is the center bore is smaller. So either you machine that larger, or you get the spindles machines down.

So the rav 4 spindle has a bigger center hub than the st185???
