The calipers on the rear of the fiero sit opposite to the Murcielago placement.  the standard Arruat rear brackets follow the fiero location.

New V2 bracket put the caliper more inline with the Murcielago..... although the 4 piston caliper is small.

The rear bracket has to be machined a bit more to correct the rubbing issue.

Sweet!! just in time for the weekend my extended heat treated chromoly 300 axles arrived today!!

Initial quickie measurement on the right axle would make one believe it was done correctly ::toothy ..... but the proof is in the pudding!!

After a couple of trips to the machinist to correct the Arraut Motorsport wonderful product  ::scratch   The front wheel can actually turn now with the tire mounted!!!

The drivers side is next and that will be back tomorrow, since it is known what has to be done to the system for it to actually work!

The example picture I was looking for that I knew I had  , but couldn't find. Makes these suggestions have a bit more clarity.

Thanks For the picture it is worth a thousand words !!

To get more room by the side of your handbrake lever , you may want to consider mounting the seats in the OE orientation which is inwards at the front and not parallel to each other.
There is also an angle to the steering column , but that may be a step too far...

Thanks String! that is a great idea, wouldn't have to be that much and not really noticeable.   A simple solution for a Simple REDO ::toothy

Got the switches for the REDO on the steering column.  Besides having drops of resin and paint over spray, the car must have been in the sun/weather as they were really rough and beat to hell.  ::)

The pictures dont really show how bad they are!

Probably wise to use the old ones until this build closer to being competed  :LL:

Made a cardboard template for my rear wheel wells.  Used 1/8 inch ABS.  Will have some adjustments to make once the rear end is in. but close for now.

One side of V2 was installed and all the V1 issues are still there.  Richard stated he QC'd them, I asked if he mounted a tire to the setup, he stated he did not.  I said you didnt test them correctly the mounted tire holds the rotor to the hub... oh well ::tongue

A couple of issues with the Caliper bracket

1. The tapped holes are just slightly to far toward the center and therefore the caliper is to far in when mounted.  This causes the caliper to rub the outside edge of the rotor.

2. The Rotor is not centered in the caliper/brake pads. . There is no adjustment in that direction.

My machine shop friend will take .030 off the diameter of the rotor. The caliper mounting bracket will be reduced by 1/16 of an inch in the area where the caliper is bolted and on once side of the bracket only.

This will be done on one rotor and bracket and tested out before the other side of the front end is done.

Haven't even tested the brackets for the rear.... but I'm sure they are okay, right?  :LL:

Well well, I would say,"out with the old and in with the new", but that has been done once already :o

Got Version 2 (V2) of the Arruat Motorsport Suspension today,  I pray to the old gods and the new gods, that there will be no V3.   Its the front drop spindles that are the biggest concern,  They said the QC'd them with the Caliper I sent them... so who knows.....

Love your seats

Who did you Upholstory

CCIE

Thanks CCIE!  Went to the high end car show room that sells  lambos, ferraris, and so on, and was looking at a murci,  Told the guy I didnt like the red leather.  He said they used a guy that did all of the upholstery for them, I asked him who, he told me and that is who I used.

It was a big shop and pretty busy talked to the owner, He has done a complete OEM Murcie and he will be doing my REDO... someday  :LL:
