I also have the RD alloy hub. have the same problem . The editing is bad.As Jack und Dads Habe be measured hole circle : 4x107.2 My solution is brake discs Citroen 283x22 , Vented , et 27mm and 4x108 Since the alloy RD do not fit I will make new hub fit with the new rotor.
I emailed Paul and RTR today and his quick response says it all really.. I am stupid
The larger disks are 280mm diameter and are for the rear of the car. The smaller disks are 265mm and are for the front and have the holes to fit the alloy hubs. I just presumed the larger disks (drilled and grooved) would go on the front, and the smaller ones (only grooved) would go on the rear. My bad.
On the upside I just ordered my Sparco steering wheel and boss and my seats. After struggling to buy seats without sitting in them first I went to Larkspeed in Leeds today as they have a small showroom with a few seats in. My fat ass fit in a few of them but I found them uncomfortable (not enough recline for me) and I'm still not sure they would fit the rocket. So I have ordered the GRP seats that most of the rockets have for now and eventually I'll switch them to something more substantial. I have also ordered a sh*t load of alluminium / steel so I can fabricate brackets and panels etc before my kit goes to powder.
I think as a newbie here it would be great to have a thread on the forum for newbie's listing all the places where people have sourced things from. I know lot's of the stuff is from Ebay but even a link to an item on ebay really helps. I'm already many hours into my project just with researching when to buy everything from and always wanting the best deal means shopping around.
Also I'm a visual learner, I like to look at pictures rather than read instructions (make of that what you will) so last night I copied lots of images from people's builds an compiled them into a document (for my own personal use only as I know these are copyrighted by the owners of the images) but this is really helping me to see how things are put together.
To my caliper brake disc fit 22mm. I hate the drill discs, and I always have when changing drillen. I going to use the car for racing , so I think that I always need new rotor relatively quickly . I'll do better , new hub. I want to enlarge the front and vented discs and small discs rear. Is of course my personal opinion.
Speaking to Paul at RTR today he suggested that the disks I have along with the green EBC pads are way more than what's required to stop a 500kg car. I just wanted to avoid brake fade so I'm sure these disks will be up to the job.
I picked up my engine rocker cover from www.hydroprecision.co.uk today. I asked for Red carbon, I think it looks amazing. I'm just waiting for the black insert which goes in the middle, that will be matt black carbon.
I have a mobile welder coming to weld the supports in for the gear selector (I'm going Honda Civic position with it, near the steering wheel). He's also welding the steering column, and a solid steel plate under each seat. I've seen this done on the race chassis (which mine is) so not sure why it wasn't done on mine as standard. This will protect my booty should I run over anything sharp enough to puncture the aluminium floor.
I bought a new focus handbrake cable and a universal Venhill throttle, both work fine. Brake lines depend on what type of system you want, hard piped to the suspension areas then flexi or 100% flexi. If you get the flexi made up, I would recommend you ask them to pressure test them.
Build Started - 11/01/14 Planned End (ready for IVA)- Sept 2014, Actual completion 29th Nov 14(Delivered to RTR), registered June 2015. Dyno readout - 163 BHP, 152lb.ft.
I've been cleaning, painting and preparing parts for my rocket for the past couple of weeks. I've also had the welder in to weld my gear selector in place, (Iv'e gone for the Honda Civic Type R gear lever placement) and add some perforated steel sheet under the seats (to protect the occupants ass in case I run a sharp object over. I've had a plate welded in for the Joker pedal and the bearing to support the steering column.
