No worry about running hard on it as the car might not run at all for at least 2 month (1UZ). As for cutting the RCA's I have acces to a machine shop. It should only take few minutes to modify.

Great write up. Love the trick to get the rotors off of the hub assembly. Wish I tried that before I gave up replacing my rotors this weekend. Oh well, I'll try again next week now.

It is nigh on impossible to get them to work the other way (by "forcing in air from the outside in").
Remember your wheels and rotors are in motion. Think of centrifugal force. Remember the merry go round as a kid? The faster you went the harder it tried to fling you off, away from the axis of rotation? Same applies here, just think of turbo chargers, air goes INTO the middle, and comes OUT the Edges.
The rotor vanes if straight, doesn't matter. The rotor vanes if SWEPT need to sweep behind, or lag behind the hubs center when spun in the direction of normal rotation.
This picture below is correct for the front left of the car (and would be for the back left as well)

I know I am bringing this thread back from the dead, but I have a Jim King BBK, both front and rear, en route from Raptor Racing. I have searched but cannot find any significant discussion of this kit and the OEM brake master. Since, as I understand it, total pad surface area has a direct impact on brake feel and effectiveness, I am wondering if anyone has any pad surface area data comparing the OEM pads to the Wilwood Dynalite pads. Also, if anyone has installed the MKIII brake master as part of the Jim King BBK upgrade, I would very much like to hear how that worked out. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.1985 Toyota P-Type MKII Celica Supra 5MT
