Sorry for the late reply.
The hub is a standard brake disc that is turned down, so it's just like normal bearing mounting.

No report on the difference between stock and 312mm front discs?

Does anyone know why Epytec doesn't sell to the USA and Canada?

I am in Europe now and have talked with many vendors that I have purchased from in the last year. The consensus is that the chances of having your product copied, sold from under you and your design are extremely high when you send them to the States. The two most popular big brake kits have been borrowed by the US sellers as it has been described to me. I have a few adapter kits for Vanagons coming back soon to mount on our vans. You can have a third party buy here in Europe and ship the items or bring them back in luggage.

"No honor amongst thieves".

I would be curious to see how the brake hoses attach to this setup if you have a picture.

I have that size brake on my van.

Not this kit but rather that size and dual piston calipers.

Night and day difference.

How this size works with that caliper is only a guess, though.....

Hi All

Great video John!!
That has motivated me to undertake a 312mm conversion.
Hubs machined, Calipers refurbed, disks sorted.
Just need braided hoses - Noted 500mm length was long enough. Is there any car Audi/VW where standard off the shelf lines would fit?

What is the part number for ATE57 calipers?
Any help would be much appreciated.

I have some photos that I'll put up once completed next week.
I have already completed Sharan rear conversion and BMW E30 servo upgrade.

These works are all necessary for the 2.7Bi Turbo engine that will go in (it's in my workshop, so it's happening). No point in having the power if you cant stop!! Shocked

We make up steel braid hoses as needed. Check Pegasus Auto Racing. Use adapters to go to AN #3
