I think 2 piston ST205 calipers will work well with hydraulic brake. You just need spare rotors. There are many hand brake designs. I like long and vertical. To the right of the shifter. Mounted on transmission tunnel.

It would help if you could add some extra bits into the cage and tie in the rear sub frame mounting points.

helps stiffen things up a bit.

Thanks everyone for the comments and interest :)

Insanity - this is acutally a really good idea, however we are fresh out of tubing and my first race is this sunday the 13th. also keep in mind that i am trying to keep the car as light as possible, but if i feel it is needed after a few races then i will for sure be adding more tubing like you did :) nice work by the way!

ok so the suspension has arrived and all i can say is, BEEEEFFYYY! KSport designed these things for some serious abuse. just look at the size of the shock shaft.

Window nets and belts are in
Image
Image

here is the belt i used for my A/C delete if anyone is interested
Image

also have B&G lowering springs that i took out of the car, make an offer if you are interested
Image
Image

So this was a bit of a chore, but since i am so picky on how the car looks as much as function, i took the time to break the old glass out of the trim and replace it with lexan for that factory look (almost) lol

more updates coming

For the AC delete, did you use the original pulley and get a 3sge non AC ribbed pulley?

If everything works out LSD in the rear diff and the improved Visco coupling will help alot with ice racing. You are very very handy. Have fun !!!!

I just ran it over the smooth pully until i can find a reasonably priced ribbed one, the dealer wanted $263.00 for the pully... i think NOT!

Bit of an update:

i got my ATS downpipe and test fitted it. the quality and ceramic coating is super nice, too bad i will be cutting the flange off and TIG welding a vband on it. also put on a Royal Purple oil filter and filled the motor with Amsoil 10w30.
Image
Image

Tires showed up.... came all the way from Sweden..
Image

also put my numbers on
Image
Image

things to do:
make aluminum exhaust
install wideband
mount fire extinguisher
new wiper blades
finish intercooler (hopefully by the next race)
try to change rusty, original fuel filter
... i know im missing something....

more updates coming
