Hello Don

Could you kindly share those cad files. I need a little more stopping power for my V12 powered TR6.

Thanks Darin

WOW, It just does fit between the suspension posts, what about the rear end?

How far into the firewall / cabin does it extend?

Sure, I'll send you the CAD files.

Please keep us posted on the progress of your build, maybe do a How it was Done submission!

Thank you Don for your help. engine fits fine, and stripped down its heavy but acceptable. I have a Tremec 6 speed and a built Nissan diff for this car. Significant suspension mods and a roll cage are in the works.

Yes will post updates.

Cheers

Darin

So I have tried every supplier I can find. The Rear right caliper appears the only one you might be able to get. Spoke to number of companies. NG I think you can safely say the calipers are obsolete.


I had custom rotor made for the Wilwood caliper. Made similar caliper mount for it. All worked out nicely for my TVR
Fitted it to friends TR6 without issues.

E Brake was next challenge for my TVR. I got another small Wilwood caliper that has been used for ebrake. Just finishing the fab on it. I need to findout best way to mount cable.

This little caliper will work on TR6 but I don't have a mounting solution for.
If your racing and not needing ebrake this setup will work for both TR6 and TVR 2500M

The bad news is it is very expensive. To costly for anyone unless you don't care and have deep pockets.
