are the s401 plates actually dimensionally different or the same just with a bracket welded on like it looks in that pic on the first page?

Yeah they're S401 copies/adapters, not OEM. They had a 'flat racing division' sticker on them but I haven't seen any others. Wouldn't be too hard to whack up though if your good with a welder.

Reckon those v7 brembos/Backing plates would bolt up to a GC8? :P

So the bolt spacing on the two pots is less; right? if you had the two pot bolt spacing access to some plate metal a cutter and a drill, surely adaptors wouldn't be too tough to rig up?

Pretty sure they will, but don't quote me on it just yet:

That's what I'm thinking with my original BH plates. Will put some detailed measurements up when it happens.

Hmn; That gives me the idea of potentially just making up a plate and welding on to the BH backing plate... if i were to keep my BH...

Them be/bh 2 pot backing plates and gda 2 pot backing plates look idendical? Or am I missing something?

Different handbrake mounting points, different wheel speed sensor location, different hub centre and hub bolt spacing.

The GDA park brake pads are shaped to clear the abs speed sensor and mount lower on the backing plate.

Restricted parts i believe so even dealers aren't allowed/can't order them unless you can give a genuine vin number for a s401. Thats the case with US dealers atleast, not sure how relaxed NZ ones are.

Edit:

Here's a full list of s401 parts. Restricted ones can only be purchased using a genuine vin number if going through regular sources.
