Re: five stud hubs

There are a few ways you can go. The most comon a atm is the Hopper Stopper kit. Also the most expensive!!
I have used XB disc's with hub modification (machine off some of the hub) with HQ calipers with the CRS kit. I don't have the exact spec's on me but if you need more info let me know, and either I or others can help.

I have seen/heard of some more and I am sure that you will get more posts of other set-ups.

What does the Rover engine go like? also handling?

Thanks for the info...the rover motor is a great way to go.....lots of stuff around to get them moving..........stroke them to 5ltr......prob the best part is handling.....weight is less (or about the same) as a 2ltr motor
can bolt P76 4 speed straight up.......also use same tailshaft and diff..pretty easy conversion
things like clutch cables etc stay the same
also P76 and buick parts bolt straight on (well some anyways)

Re: five stud hubs

Ring DBA and get blank front rotors and drill them to Falcon or Commorore 5 stud PCD. Make sure there is enough meat for the larger PCD.
Use the Commy or shorten the Falcon rear 5 stud axles.
Talk to the Speedway guys. They like to muck around on the cheap.

Re: five stud hubs

iam going an alternate route with front brakes on my te cortina,
instead i am using series 8 rx7 4 spot calipers and rotors mated to the cortina stub axles, these are decent size 300mm. in the rear i am running a shortend 9" with xf falcon rear rotors (size 286mm) this combo should pull the corty up.
