I've been working on this for awhile and now have the parts in stock ready for sale. This kit includes the caliper relocation brackets CNC machined from aluminum and the necessary bolts to relocate your calipers along with the hub rings to make your Cobra rotors hub centric on SC hubs. You'll still have to redrill your rotors to the SC pattern. This is a smart upgrade for anyone who has Cobra 13" front rotors and stock rear brakes.

These kits are in stock ready for shipment. I have had the brackets anodized and bolts zinc plated or stainless steel for corrosion protection. Complete kit is now $110 shipped in the lower 48. International or off-shore shipments additional. Payments accepted via Paypal at MDKRacing at Windstream dot net or you can mail payment to:

SuperCoupes Unlimited Inc.

Madison, OH 44057

For those who do not need rings (Mustang hubs) just deduct $10.

Awesome kit for guys who want to keep the stock bolt pattern. Well done, David.

Thanks, this kit doesn't have anything to do with bolt pattern though. You'll still be using Cobra rotors so they'll have to be drilled if you have the stock bolt pattern. I'm not currently offering rotors to go with this.

This is pretty good timing Dave ... my friend who has been making the steel brackets for the past several years has asked to "wind down production", as his life is getting too busy with other stuff. So he is finishing off a few sets with the material that he has remaining, and that will be it from him.

Point taken. I guess I got hung up on the hub-centric rings, which guys with Cobra hubs wouldn't need. No reason not to buy this kit, though. If I didn't already have Cobra brakes I'd pick up a set.

or someone that re-drills rotors. I have been building up the drive to do the 13" upgrade and want the bigger rears as well so this is perfect. Even better once I find a re-driller.

Bill at SCP offers the KVR 13" rotors with the 4.25 pattern for a bit extra.

Any machine shop will be able to redrill you a bolt pattern, or do it yourself just by sacrificing an old wheel hub, knock the studs out, and lay it on the face of the rotor, and use the existing holes in the hub for your pattern.

Dave,

I've got a similar bracket designed for the SHO rear brake enabling me to run the 11.6" front rotor back there... This is extra nice because 1) no bolt patten change, 2) ready, reasonable options for calipers, 3) rear brakes really don't do that much so no need for overkill (cobra/redrill pattern/fancy caliper's/etc...

How difficult would it be to fab up a bracket to allow running sport rotors on all four corners... I may have left out a few ateps for running 11.6's on the front, but if so let's just keep it on the rear end...

If I'm the only one who's interested in something like this just say so and I'll check it out myself on a 'one off' basis.

TIA.

VERY Nice bracket Dave. Wish this would have been available a few years back when I had to fab my own.

I built a Factory Five Racing Cobra replica with IRS and went with the 11.65" rear rotor. I would think you may have a potential market with the FFR crowd as our cars tend to need more rear brake bias. The only bracket option I have seen to fit an 11.65" rotor prior to yours is for the Cobra rear calipers - that I believe uses a smaller piston compared to the TBird / MarkVIII / XR7 calipers.

You should consider getting the word out to the FFR builders that this bracket is available to allow a different caliper.

Plat0ribs

Hey Dave, could these brackets be used on the 96 LX Sport rotor (11.6") or the Gen3 SHO rotor 11.6"?

XR7 Dave
10-26-2011, 12:22 PM
I am waiting on another run of hub rings right now and I intend to have the brackets anodized for corrosion protection so price will change slightly. Once that is done I intend to offer the brackets to others as well as the SC group. Right now this was a pilot run and had a few minor tweaks along the way.

Chris, I have no idea if they would work. I have not tried to fit those rotors but I will look into it. Most likely the offset is going to be different.

Will this fix the uneven pad wear issues that comes from the adapter bracket bending over time? I had my Ed steel brackets for a while and I feel they are bent and one pad the outside one rides outside the rotor slightly due to things being twisted. Its the same on the other side of the car.

XR7 Dave
10-27-2011, 09:37 AM
If the brackets have bent then you have an issue with your calipers and/or slider pins. It is very common for the slider pins to seize up and people don't realize it. Under normal conditions these brackets do not take any side load. The caliper is designed to be floating.

The braket and the caliper is slightly pivoted. I dont feel I had this problem until recent years. But I cant remember. Im just saying the brackets seems to be bent and everything is out of alignment. These being made out of aluminum how are they designed to prevent this bending from happening. I would say the Ed brakets are defective but both sides have the same issue, I had them for about a decade.

Stuart spencer redrills rotors or hubs and completely refirbs the spindle for 150 shipped (bearings and hubs) you would just have to ask him and see On the rotors for a price his email is stuart.douglas.spencer@gmail.com.

Keep in mind that the KVR kit uses a different rotor so you won't be able to use these with the SCP rotors.

Dave,

I thought the KVR rotors were dimensionally the same as any other brand :confused:

I was going to order a couple of these caliper relocation kits, so I could eventually upgrade to the 11.65" Cobra rear rotors on both my SCs. Since I'm already using KVR rotors and I want the rears and front to match, I'm now uncertian what parts will be needed. Please clarify.

Thanks, David

XR7 Dave
11-07-2011, 03:31 PM
I can't speak for KVR because I don't deal with those brakes and don't know what parts they use. However, I have a car here with the SCP KVR brakes on it and the rears are 12", not 11.65". The brackets are different. You'd have to buy the KVR rear brake kit to use KVR rotors, at least that is what I have observed.

Will these kist allow the use of 15 inch wheels on the rear?

Unlikely. It'll depend upon the wheel width and the offset, but you'll probably need at least 16's. In addition to caliper clearance, you have to watch for interference from the parking brake cable on the inside of the rim.

Plat0ribs

I'm sorry to keep pinging you Dave, I just checked on Rockauto auto and the sport rotor is the same as the SHO 96+ front rotor. I run these rotors on the front of my 95 with the FN72 caliper bracket, then there is a bracket mount block like what your selling to accomodate the 11.6" rotors on the back of the SHO and using the wide throat 92 vented rotor caliper.

My ultimite goal is PBR calipers in front on 11.6 rotors and 11.6 rotors on the back of both SHO's and SC's. Looks like I'm there!

Given the Sport rotor and the SHO 96+ front rotor is the same part I wound't have to change bolt pattern and can use the same wheels on birds and Taurii. My last question is what caliper would I be using on the back of the bird with your bracket all being applied on a 11.6 Thunderbird/Taurus lug patterned rotor?

For those who have installed these, how do you get the nub on the end of the parking brake cable to clear the top rear relocation bracket bolt?

The parking brake cable end piece (nub) hits the top rear relocation bolt, and doesn't allow you to bolt on the caliper with the parking brake cable in place. I tried filing down the nub on the end of the parking brake cable, and got it to fit, but the first time I pulled the parking brake lever, the end broke off (lesson learned, don't file the nub).

I think the kit may need one bolt with a shorter head on it (like a standard hex head bolt instead of the nice allen head bolts). Thoughts? Anyone else have issues?

I have always installed the cable after bolting the caliper to the bracket and knuckle.

I tried it both ways.. It just won't fit.. This is on a '94.. I wonder if the ends of the parking brake cable are different between late an early model maybe? It needs about another 3/16-1/4" clearance. I'm thinking of replacing one of the nice allen head bolts with something with a shorter head on it, after I replace the parking brake cable of course..

I have a '95, and I've been doing it for over 10 years with my original relocation brackets, using socket head bolts. I haven't tried it using David's bracket yet, but the bolt is in the same location, so I don't see why that would make a difference.

XR7 Dave
05-24-2012, 09:11 AM
This bracket does add thickness which is why the longer bolts are required compared to this ones made from 3/16" steel. I have installed a couple sets and don't recall any problems but I don't have any in hand right now to check. It may be necessary to grind a bit off the bolt head though or something. I'll check it on the next set I get in. There are some small slight differences between early and late model calipers though. I've always used the late model calipers.

Was this with the Socket head stainless bolts? One of the bolts absolutely has to be either ground down or replaced with a thinner head hex bolt on a '94 SC for clearance to the parking brake cable. You don't have to grind much, maybe 1/8" or so..

XR7 Dave
06-08-2012, 09:00 AM
Picking up brackets from the coater's today. Coating this time around is clear/grey.

Grinding of the calipers brackets and spindles is mandatory no matter who made the brackets due to the amount of offset required. If you have to clearance a bolt to clear the brake cable it may be something to do with thickness of your brake pads. I have not had that issue before but it is very close and the E-brake arm that the cable attaches to does move, so if you have a clearance issue the only thing I can say is you may have to clearance that bolt head some as you already determined.

I may look into a lateral offset next time around, if it will clear the spindle that might be a solution too. In the mean time, you'll just have to clearance things.

Hub rings are $18 shipped by themselves.

06-11-2012, 01:37 PM
If you have to clearance a bolt to clear the brake cable it may be something to do with thickness of your brake pads.

BINGO! We are using EBC Yellow Stuff pads for this project, and you are correct, they are thicker than stock replacement pads due to their "brake in coating".

My suggestion if you have this clearance problem is to leave the parking brake unhooked for about 500 miles or so until the pads "bed in", then reattach. The brake in coating on EBC's brake pads wears off rather quickly. It should give you the clearance you need as it was very, very close. I doubt stock replacement type pads will have this issue.

I've made a couple updates to the kit though, first you get hard coat anodizing which is really tough, and then I've now sourced zinc plated bolts (also very expensive) for corrosion resistance. The biggest cost increase though is a combination of material (6061 T6 aluminum stock + machining). :(

New price is $110 shipped in the lower 48 as soon as they get here, hopefully this week yet.

It should be soon, but all I can say is, it's the middle of winter, find something else to do for a little bit. Badgering me is not going to help the situation.

If you have paid and want a refund, that's no problem, just say so. Otherwise, hang on and your brackets will ship the moment I have them in hand. Thank you all for your patience in this.

David,
I am sorry I am "badgering" you! I didn't hear anything back after sending the payment so I was checking to make sure everything was ok on your end (with you not the product). I didn't really care when the kit got to me,the car isn't on the road yet. I assumed someone selling a product would reply to the people looking to buy it I didn't know that was badgering my apologies.

Sorry for losing my patience.

My post is/was not a direct response to Rob (for the record, I received your payment), but rather a general statement to anyone wanting/needing the brackets right now, letting them know that they are not available and I don't have a specific date when they will be available. There are a multitude of people who read this thread but email me directly so they need to be informed on what the situation is also.

I will post here when they are available again. Anyone who has ordered and sent payment will be first on the list to receive them when they arrive.

I've been patiently waiting for the brackets to come back from the anodizer's and playing a bit of phone tag with them but they are done now and picking up today.

So as of today, kits are back in stock ready to ship, $110 shipped in the lower 48 is current pricing. If you send paypal, kits will ship next day. Be sure to include your current mailing address.

Please do not send funds marked as "personal payments." Paypal frowns on that and charges me the fees anyway whilst also denying you their "purchase protection" and suppressing your shipping address information. Just FYI.

Thanks,

David

VERY Nice bracket Dave. Wish this would have been available a few years back when I had to fab my own.

I built a Factory Five Racing Cobra replica with IRS and went with the 11.65" rear rotor. I would think you may have a potential market with the FFR crowd as our cars tend to need more rear brake bias. The only bracket option I have seen to fit an 11.65" rotor prior to yours is for the Cobra rear calipers - that I believe uses a smaller piston compared to the TBird / MarkVIII / XR7 calipers.

You should consider getting the word out to the FFR builders that this bracket is available to allow a different caliper.

This might work for the FFR Cobra builders who are using the stock t-bird /mark viii calipers. Based on the previous post, this will NOT work for the kit builders using Cobra calipers (or cobra donors). Use the cobra caliper irs brackets from other vendors.

OK, I made all the modifications and installed the relocation brackets. There is interference between the parking brake cable end and the bracket mounting bolt. How much of the cable end can be removed without risking it detaching from the cable? In the pictures on Facebook it looks like about 1/3 of the end length was removed. Is there a practical limit?

Got a set of these from Dave this summer and I'll say, this is a beautiful kit...too bad it gets hidden from view! Top-notch quality too!

I ended up having the parking brake nub problem too. My car has calipers and e-brake cables from a Mark VIII on it...which are apparently a good bit different than the SC calipers. E-brake cable tensioner from a Mark VIII is a cool upgrade, btw...

I was able to get the nubs into the bracket okay, but the Allen bolt head pops the cable out of the bracket when you try to pull the e-brake! :eek: The Mark VIII calipers don't have a cast recess for the nub to sit in like the SC's...it'll a flat steel bracket instead, which is part of why it pops out easily.

So if you're doing a Mark VIII install, be careful that you read Dave's Facebook writeup and check your clearances and test your parking/ e-brake multiple times. It may go on without too much trouble, but it may still pop off!

I have not fixed mine yet, but I suspect that grinding down the bolt head some may fix it. I really don't want to have to touch the nub-end of the cable. :(
