    You know on top of building my car that never once occurred to me? Don't be silly. Not in a position to do that now or else I would.

    Hardly being silly. Sounds like a pretty logical thing to do since you have the part and its pretty safe to assume you also have a supra. I'd much rather take my own measurements and assessment on a part than ask the internet.

    Lots of people are lazy, if you're in a position where you cant then that's one thing but it was merely a suggestion. When I did my big Brembos, there was no asking as no one had done it, had to take it upon my self to get all the answers.

    I hear you. I currently have my r154 on the ground waiting for my clutch release hub kit to come in. If i can tackle that one then the caliper fitting is abc's. I just don't have the calipers in hand for the moment and want to know 100% so i can purchase the 2000-2002 versions so ill have no down time when ready to the brakes after the transmission, cams , manifold etc....

    Ebay and Amazon have a ton.

    https://www.amazon.com/Hubcentric-Ri.../dp/B00DIK45WI



    For anyone interested in speed bleeders for the Mercedes calipers, part # SB8125L from Goodridge is the correct part number. You have to thread them almost all the way in, but those are the ones. Unsure on the rears yet, still have to look.

    Thank you, much appreciated. Iím still not seeing 68-60.1 metal rings. Plastic yes, but no metal.

    Are the plastic rings an absolute no-no?

    I wouldn't use plastic near the brake rotors.

    Click the link I posted lol, it'll bring you right to a set of aluminum hubcentric rings that are 67.1 mm to 60.1 mm (which are the sizes you need).

    Isnít 68.0 mm the size we need for the 350z rotors?

    Edit: just realized the 67.1mm are for the Mercedes rotors (R350). In which case I assume we want the 330 mm rotors and not the 350mm ?

    Aha, yes you are right. If you use the Mercedes rotors you need 67.1, 350Z rotors are 68.0 (judging from past posts anyways, I used the Mercedes rotors). I can't find a source for any rings that go from 68.0 to 60.1, they seem rare.

    I guess itís going to be the 13Ē Mercedes rotors for me based on the ring availability.

    Iím not going to reread this whole thread but why did the thread start talking about 350z rotors and not MB rotors? Maybe first post could be updated to include both options?

    I wonder if the 350z rotors have a different offset? The only reason to not use the MB rotors that are proven and work would be if there was a rotor that was backset slightly more and allowed you to mount the calipers without washers. This would buy another 5-7mm to clear wheels which has been a bit of an issue for me.

    Another question, has anyone had any luck finding 2 piece R350 rotors? I looked a bit and it seemed like StopTech were the best option out there but I would love to go 2 piece for weight if possible.

    Make sure you buy your rotor first, then measure the thickness so you know how long a spacer you need.

    yeah, it would be my preference to not use spacers too. I'm hoping to install mine later this year or over the winter next year.

    they bolted up , but i had to get wheel spacer to clear my rims(18" RPF1s) i'm using 25 mm but i believe 20 mm would have worked. Now i have slight tire exposure, but not a lot. I will probably swap out to the 20mm down the road.

    These breaks Work!!! did a 250Km/h pull and they worked great. What this car should have came with to begin with

    Now time to address the rears. Aside from the evo, anything else? The mk4 rears i heard work too?

    Why would we NOT want the 350mm rotors to ensure full pad coverage? I don’t like the idea of the 330mm and the pads on the edge and it looking like too small of a rotor for the caliper

    FOr the rear evo brake calipers - 08 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO look identical to the 03-05 rear calipers. Are there any differences that isn't shown in pictures?

    I know its a fairly old thread but have some questions.

    What offset are your RPF1s without the spacer? I'm looking at doing this mod but don't want to if the wheels I want won't clear.

    Also has anyone tried this rotor MB 4474210012? Apparently fits but have yet to find a thread on it. Someone posted on facebook about it being an option. Comes on the 2018 MB Metris Van. Can get pretty cheap on rockauto. Claims to not need washers which I assume would help with wheel clearance?

    Any updates to other possible parts to use? I'd like to collect it all and store on my site because doing so on a forum or on facebook will get buried in the comments with corrections or possible other solutions.

    When I search that pn all that comes up is 300mm listings so I would say that it will not work unless you are ok with pad overhang.

    Bolt on 4-Piston front MB brakes &amp; 2-Piston rear Evo brakes

    Got my brake set up on. I have +30 work emotions in the front 18x8.5 and they clear by a mile.



    Also, I had my hub centric rings for the rotors lathed to 0.268Ē thickness so they were flush with the rotor face. Paid a machine shop to do it instead of gumming them up myself.
