Wilwood dual master cylinders are used with an adjustable balance bar for proportioning. An adjustable proportioning valve fine tunes the brake balance. Top hung master cylinders were used on the S13 vs bottom pivots with a foot box like the old Lexus used. Full race technology here!
Our favorite Volk RE30 wheels are used, lightweight stiff and strong, accept no substitute! The front wheels are 18×9.5 with a 18mm offset and a 25mm spacer. The front tires are 245/40-18 Falken RT615’s. A Wilwood ultra light billet caliper grabs a Wilwood solid super light sprint car rotor on a floated alloy hat. Drift cars don’t need super powerful brakes, just a lot of bias adjustability.
More Volk goodness, 18×10.5 with a 15mm offset. 275/35-18 Falken RT615 tires are used in the rear. Braking is handled by two sets of Wilwood ultra lights. The second caliper is connected to a hand activated turning brake on an independent hydraulic circuit, like a rally car giving Dai another option to help rotate the car.
The dash, warning lights and engine management is handled by Motec. The transmission tunnel is slightly widened to accommodate the G-Force tranny. The interior paint is Rustolemum refrigerator white!
Dai’s office is furnished by Sparco, seats, harnesses and steering wheel.
All of the car’s functions are controlled through this box on the transmission tunnel. Steve Sprague was responsible for the tidy wiring.
Safety first, a 3-nozzle Firesafe halon system can control all but the most serious fires.

The car should be complete in the next few days. Let pre-season testing begin!
