Lrd do you know if your bracket will work on a 2g gs300?

Got my brackets the other day, thanks LRD!!! They look to be great quality
Unfortunately it'll be a while as I can only afford to piece this setup piece by piece, but I cant wait!

Hi, are you still able to get the custom brackets? If so please let me know! Tried sending you a private message but your thing is full.

Thanks
Liu

I'm new to this forum, and was reading about this awesome setup. I PM'ec LRD (hope he gets back to me on this question).
But, just in case he's not on the forum anymore, or isn't logging in (if anyone can reach out on my behalf, it would be greatly appreciated). Anyone running the Z06 calipers, could you please clarify something for me?

I'm trying to piece together a kit for my Rx (yeah I know... overkill, but, read on, as this could pertain to anyone building a kit later on). Now, I know that Supra TT rotors will fit, the ISF rotors could fit also, since its all the same bore, and hole pattern.

However, my question is in regards to the rotor width, the Z06 uses 32mm wide rotors, and ISF, Supra TT rotors are 30mm wide. Is there a spacer packed behind the brake pads to compensate for the 2mm disparity?

I ask this, because pedal feel would be too soft if the 2mm wasn't compensated for somehow.

I think people just install it as is. I can't imagine that the pedal would feel too soft. It should be comparable to driving a car after the pads have about 1 mm of wear.

I hear you, but, even with regular calipers, when the pads wear down a bit, I can feel it in the pedal. In fact I go by pedal feel before I check the pads in depth. I know that 2mm isn't much, but, I was thinking that maybe making some shims to go between the pads and the pistons in the caliper would probably provide what its supposed to feel like in their stock form.

But, if you're running this setup, and haven't felt the need to shim the pads, then I guess I'm good to go. Obviously I'll have to fab up some brackets and such.

Thanks!

I'm not personally running this setup due to wheel clearance, but I have installed it before. If you do decide to make your own shims keep in mind you'll have to design 12 shims since each piston has its own brake pad.

Not using the Z06 calipers in my setup... Going to use Brembo 17r which is a 6 piston caliper, that uses a single pad. So, I'd trace the pad's rear face (touches the piston), and make a 1mm thick shim per side out of steel. I've seen titanium ones online as well...

But, if there's no issue with a 2mm variance from the rotor, then I should be good.

Once again, thanks!
