why not fab this brake setup with a factory ebrake style caliper. Should still have enough bite with good pads to initiate a drift and perfect for ebrake?

Just to clarify, i don't mean factory 350z. I was refering to nearly all rear disc cars on the market.

i have an independent remote reservoir for that second caliper. are you wondering about running duals for a daily use. thats gonna be a headache. your better off getting SS lines, pads/rotors, racing blue, et.

in a perfect world i would rip out the whole drum assembly and possibly do that. in my world, the leverage and ease from my setup and still having the factory ebrake to use on hills and random uneven pavement waiting in line at track days make my setup good for me

So you did manage to figure out how to get your drum brakes back with the dual brembo setup. Last I had read you were still trying to work that out. I was just trying to make thing easier

I've spoke with Goerge and a couple other people with no progress. I currently have wilwoods from 2008 that did not allow you to use factor e brake.

I'm looking for a bracket to add another Wilwood caliper or any other caliper for hand brake.

Any help would be appreciated.

update found one that retains factory e brake
http://www.enjukuracing.com/products...-350z-g35.html

now can anyone tell me if this will work with aftermarket bbk? I'm looking at stoptech.
I think it would work since the brackets have to be machined to fit the spindle/knuckle...but not sure.

From what I see it won't work with a bbk. The bracket won't be large enough to clear a bigger rotor. You might contact enjuku though to see If they have a way to make it work for you.

you will need to check how much threads you have left after the 8mm space out from the bracket. if you have the money id buy extended studs and have one less thing to worry about. you can always contact the guys at maverick and they should be able to tell you.
