Late Night In The Shop Last Night

On my way to the junkyard now. Interesting fact...Z20 Soarers are mechanically almost identical to MkIII Supras. Same shocks, same control arms, same brake calipers, same hubs, not the same rotors. Found out last night the Supra uses a spacer to push the caliper further from the hub, and then runs an ~1" larger diameter rotor. Looks like we're getting an upgrade!

We already bought the rotors and pads, and the only difference between the two models brake systems is the larger rotor and the extra bracket, so we're just going to add the Supra brackets and call it a day. I guess we'll have slightly better brake fade...

The guy at Napa was pretty shocked they had the rotors in stock when I bought them (I checked online first). Then he was even more shocked when he got them and they were 'Made in the USA'. I think Napa stopped making their premium rotors in the USA about 5 years ago...
