hey guys, does anyone know if the rear brake setup for the R33/R34 gt-r skylines, or the ney 350z incorporates the drum style parking brake like on the 300zx? just wondering, because i stumbled upon front and rear brembo calipers for a new 350z and want to know if i need a seprate parking brake or not... and if so, i guess they'll be going on the race car!!! :) anyways, they should arive in a few days!!! tahks for any info...

Yes, the Skyline had a similar e-brake setup to the z32 and Q45.

I'm not sure about the 350z though, but supposedly its brakes will work on a 240sx.

Even if they do require the seperate parking brake, I'd see if you could just get the rear hub/ spindle assembly from a junkyard for the e-brake equipment. I paid $35 for my rear e-brake stuff.


Good find with the Brembo's though!! I'm definitely jealous.... although, having just put Q45 brakes on, I'll tell you now to start looking for a bigger master cylinder :p
