    Q45 Big Brake Conversion - SOLD

    Sold

    I used these for 2 races and they've been sitting in a box as spares since I moved to the R32 Calipers. $350 plus shipping

    1995 Q45 front calipers
    Hubs turned down to fit MPV rotors. New bearings installed. New longer Dorman studs.
    Some used Axxis ULT brake pads. (4) have about half life left, (4) 1/4 life left, (2) brand new pads (one caliper). They took a beating on the track but should have decent street mileage left.

    Great kit and hauls the car down in a hurry. Ran a similar setup on my 7m brown car for ~45,000 miles - 360rwhp, full street-car weight, never broke a sweat even on track-days and such.

    Additionally, can vouch for the seller as a good guy and reputable - deal with without hesitation.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Billy. And I appreciate you getting the shift kit shipped so quickly.

    These brakes certainly worked well on my 2500 lb endurance car, but the track pad selection isn't nearly as good as the Nissan calipers (or the capability to change pads quickly during a pit stop).

    What size of wheels does a dude need to accommodate these?

    That's a great question that is best answered by someone who knows or the really long "Brake thread". They might fit under "some" 15" wheels, but I only ran them under 16" wheels where there was a lot of room.

    One buyer is interested at the moment. I'll keep the thread updated if anything changes.

    Negative. I decided that a buyer would probably want to choose their own rotors. I use cheap Centric products because they're usually toast after one race.

    I would like to confirm that I need to acquire a pair of 1992 to 1995 4WD Mazda MPV rotors redrilled to 4x114.3 to go along with this set-up. Also, I recall that Mazda and Ford shared a lot back then - has anyone checked whether maybe the Ford Exploder rotors might be interchangeable with the 4WD MPV?
