as requested Mazda Esprit brake mod,rear brakes,Mazda RX8 rear discs with slight machining to Esprit hub's and slightly elongating the stud holes in disc fit straight on to give outboard braking,i made a simple 10 mm thick bracket which mounted to two of the bolts through hub casing to trailing arm,slightly awkward measuring and spacing needed to mount RX8 rear calipers,in fact i had to cut out very small section and reweld arm,then alter the ends of the hand brake cable and it all fitted ,new flexie hoses and copper pipe fitted,piece of cake,brilliant handbrake!!!!,due to extra thickness of disc had to get slightly longer wheel bolts,in fact did virtually the same to the front as well,then went the whole way and fitted RX8 servo and master cylinder!,car will now stop on a sixpence!!!! I have had the car for about 15 years buying it as a box of bits basically,resprayed it a gorgeous Lambo dark pink, fitted Rover V8 and used it ever since over here in Cypus,i have a few chassis changes in mind to do and that turbo diesel engine swap as well!!,meant to say was running standard 5 stud BBS wheels,oh and the car has a soft top with t-bar and strengthened windscreen pillars,handling is still perfect,any info re brakes required dont hesitate,cheers
