Wiwood Rear Calipers

Is anybody using wilwood rear callipers on their MK Indy?
If so do they fit inside 13" wheels.
Also which callipers are they and do they fit straight to the MK up right?

Thanks

nope you will need 15's there is about 5-10mm between the handbrake mechanism and the rim on my car with 15inch team dynamics wheels





Anything With Tits or Wheels Will cost you MONEY!!

We have them on our Tiger GTA running 14's have modded the rear suspension so in theory they will fit under a 13 but havent checked fully yet and even if they do it will be very very tight.

Are the MK Indy the same as the Mac#1 at the rear end? sierra rear bearing carriers and hubs? if so speak to Mac#1, they can supply you brackets and discs to fit the Wilwood handbrake calipers and fit behind 13" wheels.

Here's the rear brakes on my Mac#1 Worx







Rear upright



Sierra bearing carrier fitted to uprightband bracket painted/fitted to bearing carrier



Bracket and hub fitted



Disc and caliper fitted





Not the best photo but they fit behind 13" Team Dynamics Pro 1.2 wheels



bigrich also had them on his Mac Worx,

Sausage I couldn't help but notice that you only have one rose joint on your lower arm - can you elaborate? Looks good, and cheaper than rose jointing the whole lot!

Is it me, or is that shock on upside down.





Ron said it would cost 250 quid. My wife thinks it did.

One rose joint to adjust rear toe.

I have a cammed bolt to do the same thing. Like an MX5.

Shocks are valved to be that way up I believe.

I also have 13" prorace with willwood calipers. Not the disc ones though you need the drum conversion from RD.

Assuming it's designed to be that way up, it's far better to have it that way up (reduced unsprung mass).





Report your local potholes, it actually works!

That makes perfect sense. That's why I like this site so much, I learn something new nearly every time I come on here.

I forgot to mention earlier that to fit the discs Mac#1 supply, the rear hubs need a small amount machined off the outside diameter to fit inside the brake disc.
