Disc conversion, English axle, VAG callipers

Iím in a canít decide mode. Iíve got a Fisher Fury with a hydraulic rear handbrake (xr3 disc and front calliper conversion)

But I want to make it road legal and sort a decent handbrake out. I thought Iíd go for original with drums and got myself some 9Ē backplstes etc.

How antiquated is the handbrake assembly though? Connecting rod, flexy link, bushing...

Chatting to Lee at rally design he told me not to go for Wilsonís rear callipers as handbrake is poor, but mentioned their VAG conversion.

I canít see it on their website... google comes up with a lead on Turbosport but itís 10 years old...

Has anyone got a contact for the adapter plate/kit please?

I like the thought that if Iím going to change I may as well go for a lighter weight option.

P.S Iíll be listing my 9Ē drum set up I reckon

Chanks in advance
Phil

The standard handbrake system is great. its nice and simple and easy to adjust and there isnt that much to wrong and locks up the rears real well.

Plus 1 if you can get all the parts drum brakes are lighter and handbrake is really good
