Post rear disc set up for gtm coupe
anyone got a rear disc conversion for a gtm coupe?

just had a terminal failure of the drum brakes, so it would be an ideal time to upgrade!

In my neck of the woods the popular Rover Metro discs do not exist, I found I could adapt 1.6 fwd Toyota Corolla 9" discs and calipers onto my old Cox GTM drum brake hubs and more recently adapted Nissan 9"disc and caliper with a hand brake onto mini drum brake hubs, with a machine shop almost anything is possible :wink:

With a small amount of machining you can fit MGF rear callipers onto mini hubs.

I've recently looked at this. I opted for the kit from rossabitz (on this forum) to lock the steering, and also supports a handbrake caliper, prob worth a look

Hi Steve,

Got any pics of the rossabitz kit at all? I'd like to fit rear discs to my Rossa and would be intrigued to see how this works.

Thanks

Jamie

Thanks Steve.

I dropped in to Alan (Rossabitz) earlier in the week and had a good look at the kit - will definitely be fitting one of these as my rebuild progresses.

Alan was a top man as well !!

Not sure if I'm going to go for MGF calipers or stick with the mini bits and the handbrake conversion from Alan though? I can decide this later on though.
