    Bad ass! Would have loved to have this years ago... now get to work on the rear brackets for the rear 3KGT calipers :D I know, I know, it's a little more complicated than that.

    Are the steel inserts full sleeves or coils?

    Very nice, I was hoping that is what you'd say. I looked at your site the other day and it appears you guys are making some really nice stuff. This may be a little off topic, but I know that a 2g rear subframe/axles are needed to turn a dodge colt into an AWD car..... I assume that you could use the one you sell instead of trying to find an oem subframe to make the swap "easier"?

    I'm not too familiar with AWD swapping CSM's. The few that I've seen were adapted to run 1G DSM rear subframes/suspensions. Are guys also using the 2G DSm rear stuff as well?

    I can't say it would be any different in regards to ease, but certainly lighter, stronger, and cleaner. :)

    I could be mistaken. I thought they used 2g rear frames for this..... maybe someone that has done it or knows more about it can help. I have a near perfect condition 89 colt GT that still is up in the air as what I will do with it. I know fully built fwd car is the kind that tries to switch 3 lanes when boost comes on from torque steer. Of course an LSD can help with that.

    Man these are badass and super well made! As soon as I'm up and running I'll definetely pick up a pair! (My calipers are brand new oems already) Just being able to have brakes embossed w/Mitsubishi is selling point enough for me.

    Any plans for rear upgrades??

    No plans for rear brackets yet, but I may explore those later this year.

    These look very nice, I especially like the reinforcement triangulation. I'm also curious about why you decided to use thread inserts rather than just threading the holes. Also when I did my own custom brackets, I found I had to use about 3mm thick spacers between the bracket and caliper to get it perfectly centered on the rotor. This was on a stock 2G AWD knuckle. Good luck with the product!

    Thanks. I just wasn't a huge fan of a threaded aluminum hole in a high torque application. Greater strength and longer thread life with the steel inserts.

    Curious ...

    Roughly how many hours does this swap take?

    This needs a 17" wheel or will a 16" clear?

    Remanned calipers for like $85 and the 1994 VR4 3000gt fit?

    Comments on braking distance, before and after?

    Anyone have a different brake line part number option?

    Anyone try these rotors or confirm they'll work?
    Stop Tech, slotted but not drilled. $95 each
