question on dual rear break caliper setup on fd3s

hey guys, i'm wanting to do a dual break caliper setup on my fd for the rear for a hydro break setup. does anybody make a bracket/kit for this? how dificult would it be to do this setup if not? or how hard is it to setup the kit if they do? i know i could just t off the hard lines but i hear sometimes that makes breaking harder. I dont really know much about this type of setup, so any info would be helpful.

Thanks!

The only "performance" modification that utilizes TWO calipers. is one caliper is hydraulic , one mechanical.

^Except Ghia, that in drifting we use Hydraulic ebrakes. So one is stock brake system and another is a separate Hydraulic line and master.

That looks like George Marstanovic's S13 kit. His username is Sil8ty on here.

There's a small chance George could look into it for the FD. There has to be a large enough demand for it though. Unfortunately Hydro brakes are almost always for drifting and there aren't many FD's doing it.

Once rear bracketing is figured out, the rest is very simple. It's a separate brake system from the stock stuff. The second caliper would be dedicated to the Hydro ebrake. So all you need is Ebrake+line+ fluid+brake caliper and you're done.

You might get more help in the drifting forum for this.
