JJ - does your outboard brake conversion include an e-brake mechanism? That's definitely something I'd like to upgrade my street cars with.
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.
Both sets of wheels look very nice. Personally I don't understand why you would go to enormous expense and trouble to increase the unsprung weight of a 75. A friend of mine has raced transaxle Alfas to the limit on tracks all over Australia for years and never lost his brakes. He simply fitted ventilated disks to the rear.
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!
