2 pot rear brembos bh5


Recommended Posts

Kartboy (and some others) adaptors are readily available, pricey much, someone on here had some made up, ask dacerx. I was lucky enough to score correct backing plates and 2 pots, still cannot find time to install. Pure luck as I've never seen another one for sale before.

Ok I will have a sniff around, is this "kartboy" brand for sale in nz?

You need something like this:

or order S401 Backing plates. (I did post part numbers in one of the many threads about BE/BH 2pot conversions)

or you can weld you backing plate to suit 2pots

Why would u need them for the front? they are bolt on for all front calipers..... its just rears that have issues?

BL/BP rotor, GTS-T R33? caliper. Common stateside not so much here and can fit a stock 16" rim over it. Almost a brembo for a fair chunk cheaper 316mm vs 326mm and 20mm on the early 4 pots.

Nope not with the big rotor only the 294mm so 20mm in it it looks substantially cooler. The bolt spacing is the difference between sub and nis which is why the spacer kind of works a bit better with nissan and run same common pads.

Anyway on topic I know nothing of the rears but do R180 hubs work? Wonder what genuine parts thro partsouq would cost. Got to be cheaper than adaptors+cert.

R160 rear backing plate from bug wrx(non sti) fit to bh/be rear hubs.. you need to dismantle the hubs and usually or almost always the bearings don't press off in one piece so best to replace them with new ones while your there, so press the hub off and unbolt the backing plate and swap it over etc.. cost of the bearing kits will set you back around 120 eachside from bnt,

If your going brembo then you will need to make the handbrake work as its 170mm vs 190mm there are more expensive ways but best and cheapest answer to this is add extra 10mm of meat to each handbrake shoe.. place down blenhiem rd over the bridge opposite from air force museum did mine cost about 120ish from memory.

This is the way you do it if you don't want to bother with cert.
