We don't have the e-Brake parts sorted yet, but will eventually. The APs don't have integrated parking brakes - it will be two separate smaller calipers.

Thanks! Yeah, the G2/GiroDisc vented rear solution that Group 2 Motorsports offers is very nice (even better than simply fitting the cast iron SZ rear rotors and spaced calipers - the G2 setup has floating aluminium hats), but there's still a ton of heat-transfer and buildup at the rear, pad swaps are a pain in the arse and I personally like more brakes at the rear. This car builds speed FAST! And no, the goal would NOT be to increase unsprung weight - quite the opposite!
