Default Dual rear caliper bracket

I was wondering if anyone had measurements for a hydraulic handbrake dual rear caliper bracket for a 240 that they would be willing to share so that I could make my own, rather than dropping $100-$200+ on a set.
I really appreciate the help.
Thanks!

I would like to, unfortunately, I'm not in a financial position where I'm able to do so. I apologize.

I truly wonder about people that claim to be too poor to afford a bracket, but flush enough to embark on a silly quest for a modification to an expensive toy that they want for the equivalent of ice dancing in a car.

Has anyone heard from volvo242ti recently? I messaged him yesterday and didn't hear anything back (not unreasonable in the slightest) but then I went on his page and saw that his last activity was December of last year. Does anyone have an email or anything that I could use to contact him directly rather than using the forum message system?

I'll find out if he has any. I sent him a pm on crackbook.. He's busy building a house to live in right now. I'll call him if he doesn't see my PM.

By giving honest advice?

"cept I'm not selling the guy anything, just advising he has enough calipers to do whatever he thinks he'll will be doing..

Got any helpful advice for the guy?

He says he is out and is not making anymore, but that Bergen is supposed to start making them and selling them. I'll see if STS can get the template and make some also, might be quicker as they are nearby also. I think Bergen is in Seattle.

I can send them off to be water jetted as well. Last set of brake adapters I had cut were like $10/ plate.
It would be great if STS could do these though, or just manage the flow of parts. Super super easy with their website and all.

So you can brake the front tires with your foot and use the hydraulic handbrake at the same time. If you do that with a pass-through hydraulic setup the rear brakes will stay on. REALLY easy to boil the fluid that way.

What.
Braking all 4 wheels at the same time happens in most cars if I remember correctly.
Do you know what you are talking about?
I hope the above was just poorly written.

It wasn't the most clear post, and I apologize for that. I was on my phone while pooping and I didn't feel like typing out some long winded answer.

I believe the OP is wanting to start drifting their car, which is about the only reason to run dual hydraulic calipers.
If a "pass through" MC is used for a hydraulic handbrake, you only need one set of rear calipers. The downside to this setup is that if you are trying to scrub speed and adjust your line with the front brakes and modulating the rears with the handbrake, you can cause the pass-through MC to get locked on. This happens when the order of operations is: hand brake on, foot brake on, and then foot brake off. The added pressure from the foot brake will cause the hand brake MC to stay on. This will leave the rear brakes on and boil the fluid in a hurry, especially when you have a decent amount of power. Then when you go to use the hand brake a few corners later, it doesn't work and causes poo to come out and ruin your pants.

Dual rear calipers are used in drifting for a few reasons:
1. Different compound pads can be used for rear brakes. This is handy if the car is street driven as well. Sometimes you may need a pad that has instant cold bite for the hand brake, and other times you may want something that'll work when it's hot. You can compromise pad life for better bite since they're not stopping the car in day-to-day driving.
2. You can use the front brakes and the hand brake a the same time.
3. You will have better feeling brakes. The inline MC causes a little bit of added pedal travel.
4. Adding dual calipers can be easier to install if you're not keen on modifying the factory F/R brake system.
