I can't be sure but I think Goran is only using the stock rear calipers for an easy solution to an e-brake- required for legal road cars. FWIW, stock Pantera rear calipers were also used on the Peugeot 205.


The thought was to use the existing rear caliper for the handbrake, and relocate the front rotor and front caliper to the rear.

Are you saying that the existing front caliper and rotor are inadequate for the rear?

Considering the size of some of the wheels and tires being run on these cars converted to Gp4 fenders, the added weight of front caliper in the rear has to be insignificant compared to the added weight added by a 18"diameter x 13"wide rim and tire? I think I remember the front caliper to weigh 4 or 5 pounds? No?
