Plus upping the Master Cylinder to a 25mm bore unit.
Sounds interesting! Are the tesla calipers radial mount and do you know the piston sizes? Might become an interesting one to use on homebrew big brake kits.

Looking forward to see the outcome! Your earlier Wilwood setup inspired me to get in on the four-piston brake caliper action with my Saab 900

Yeah, I have all the measurements at work written down. I might be stepping down to a 215mm rotor and back to the Wilsonís calipers though. The wheels I really want to use hit the caliper at the drop center. I did find a way to put reasonably priced two piece rotors together though!



Pretty stoked on these too!

AMAZING Atom badges made by House Of Logos out of the UK !! Couldnít be happier. These are stage badges. Buy a custom part fabricated by me, get a green dot Stage 1. Level up to the Stage 2 red dot, then the Stage 3 gold dot. Ultimate Full Builds get the Uber limited Polished Copper Stage 4 badge. Canít wait until I get to see some out in the wild!

Podcast drops tomorrow. Rain City Supercars. I don’t like the sound of my own voice, but I guess that’s normal.

Definitely fun. Iím pretty excited about them. Nice and small. Can be perched just about anywhere.

Here it is. Much more coherent than I remember the recording being. Enjoy!
