Damn that new rear setup of yours looks crazy! That new combo you're running is going to be amazing. Sucks to hear about your rear coilover

Have you tried mounting the dual caliper setup to the DW knuckle yet? I read in another thread that they don't like to play well together.

at first, mounting the brackets to the DW spindles is frustrating. basically, you're combining two completely custom practically one-off parts. however after you overlook all that needs to be done its easy to do. i have taken detailed pics of everything i did and in the end it was very very simple. the 2nd side took me 20 minutes total from start to finish so that was really cool!
thanks tricky, i think the coilover is fine. thank god the height is set where i like it so i'm going to leave it for now and order a new bucket/collar from tein just in case i need to change heights later.
also i will say this, for this being an older set of coils (2-3 years) it was nice that tein answered my phone call and got me my collars for the fronts in 3 business days. i'm sure companies with us support like stance also do this, but i found it neat how easy it was with tein to get these parts and how great their customer service was. big ups to you guys!

yeah i spoke with george about that problem you were having. george's bolts don't work on our application but its hard for him to have known that since he never had the two products in front of him. i will say this, the bolts are still close but i jacked the car up/down through its range of motion to watch articulation and see if there was contact and so far so good!

Love it stew!
As far as DW fitment, I spoke with stew and we figured out how to get them on. He can post some pictures of what needed to be done. It's not too bad but like mentioned, sometimes custom parts don't bolt on 100% with other custom parts.
The dual cailper setup still works better than drum.

i'm EXCITED to use the dual caliper setup george! thanks for the help with the fitment stuff dude
as promised ill do a writeup tomorrow, but in the meantime...
its close! but damnit, it works and looks totally rad!

Well, looking at the pics its pretty self explanatory if you've seen the 2 parts together but i suppose some brief description is involved. If you install the hub into the spindle without the adapter you'll notice this
thats how close it is out of the box. george's brake adapters pull that hub outward another 8mm so shaving must be done to accompany the cv tri-lobe body going deeper into the backside of the spindle
you don't have to do it very deep, 5-6mm at most.
now you've got the bracket/spindle/hub bolted together, you'll notice the bracket comes very close to the ruca bushing...
i opted to trim down the outter radius of the outside of the ruca clevis
next up you'll notice the bolts interfere right there
what you need is a strong bolt with a standard 6point head holding the caliper on, i opted to take the oem bolt and cut off the washer
its close! on the car the arm is actually pulled forwards a little and it gets the nut and bolt a little bit further apart, just a little. i also opted to grind that 6th point down on the nut and make sure it faced the caliper bolt upon installation just for good measure.
on that same caliper the lower bolt comes real close to the edge of the spindle
i carefully took a little bit of the side material off this caphead screw so that it could "sneak" past the edge of the spindle and gently massaged the powdercoating before installing. fit like a dream. i mean, its all very close and packed, but if you think about what you just fit together and how, it REALLY wasn't that bad.
anyways, i have more detailed pictures should anybody require them, figured those were just the basics with a brief explanation. so for a closer, here was the internal magnets on my trans
(missing: 1 3-4 key that busted in 2)

no sir! and, dw spindles or not...i recommend ALL you guys contact george asap! z32 rear calipers are a dime a dozen because nobody wants to deal with e-brake stuff so they sell them off. hydraulic e-brakes are flooding the market, etc. no reason why we shoudln't have a whole slew of 6caliper cars on here

Finally some stuff came in that I've been waiting for so I can *hopefully* get the car back on the ground and driving again for next weekends Fabricated Motorsports event (pro-am rd. 3)
I don't want to sound like some sort of gimmicky sales ad, but I had been searching long and hard for a good place to have my T56 rebuilt. I've heard bad things about a lot of different companies and, since transmission breaks can no longer be what prevent me from driving, I had to make sure it was done right. Oddly enough I was talking to a buddy of mine from up north and he referred me to Jason from Texas Drivetrain Performance. I spoke with Jason about some of my options for this particular application, T101a, glorified and beefed up grandpa T10, magnum 6060, facing the gears in my box, etc. We both agreed that the T56 had another shot left in it so we did a full stage 2 along with triple cone synchros and replacing all the gears I banged up, 1-4 looked like a crime scene. Anyways, got it back with a very quick turn around time (the only delay was him finding a C5 core for the triple cones) and its ready to rock!
upon removal of my bellhousing and exedy hypersingle I noticed it was a little thin, then I got a good laugh
That thing was hammered and the disk was damn near dead. I showed Jason the clutch last night and he hooked me up on his stage 3 which acquired almost 2" larger diameter of actual clutch material and a 4130 chromoly flywheel right on the spot! Sweet! There probably wasn't a good chance that exedy would've continued on anyways.
If you guys have a T56 thats dead or dieing, I'd seriously give him a fighting chance at it. He can go as far or as little as you'd like, ships without problems, and can knock out about 6-7 T56 builds a day...and the shop was living proof. There is a floor covered in built ones and a 25ft. transmission table covered in "in progress" transmissions. Twas a true T56 heaven! www.texasdrivetrainperformance.com
this little guy also showed up nothing special here, I'm actually going to opt for mounting it to the seat and running a decent amount of -3 soft plumbing into a hardline that runs to a T in the rear and mimics the pathway of rear oem lines. Just waiting on some jic pads for the rear and it'll be good to go, another 40 hr weekend coming up!
