Recommended Posts

I know at the top it says that it has been revised to not use a spacer but the link isn't working is there somewhere else this can be seen?

Just use ae111 twinpots with Mr2 vvti front disks. bolt on, not spacers,shims or drilling... Just a little grinding to the carrier

there 5mm skinnier then the opel disks richard sure that cant be a good fit as the twin pot callipers require 25mm thick disks

the rest of the size is perfect by the looks of it

Mr2 discs are not centred to the carrier which will cause uneven pad wear imo not a suitable disc at all.

if you require suitable discs I can supply them with all work done at a good price :)

so they require 2.5mm spacers behind the disc ??? to center it to the caliper

both discs have a hight of 43mm

2 years now i have been looking for the carriers

and the 1s that did pop up had a starlet tax on them costing as much as the twinpot setup

Why are people making this so difficult ?


Corolla e10 carriers , 00 onwards mr2 front disks and ae111 twin pots. As Richard was saying . Carrier needs to be modded a very small bit . No spacers or anything like that. It's almost a direct bolt on job.


I have done this on 3 cars over the past 2 years. Zero issues and great stopping power for little money

No twin pot carrier and e10 carrier has a different position . That's why it's used. If you use twin pot carrier you have to use spacers and odd ball disks

Were allow around if the cars aren't stacked if they are they need to be in racks.

I've probably got some 256mm e11 carriers here i imagine theyll be much a muchness unless the caliper style changed
