    I've been getting blasted with people asking for this, since I've hinted at it before. We're on the home stretch.. putting this into testing as soon as I can get the car apart. 13" Cobra front brakes mounted to the rear.

    The main issue that could potentially arise is piston knock-back due to the floating C-clip axles, so the main function of our testing will be to make sure that this will not be a problem. Based on the measurements and math I've done so far, we'll be in the clear, but testing always tells the full story. Edit: Turned out not to be an issue! We're in the clear :)

    What size rotors? Will the brake bias have to be adjusted?

    Theres been a lot of interest in the IRS version so its definitely #1 priority once the SRA version is complete. We're already working on the IRS bracket.

    No cable e-brake, you'll want to use one of these: http://www.jamarperformance.com/Online/catalog/products.php?56 I'll be testing it myself

    13". Will be doing testing as far as the bias goes and get back to you.

    Willwood makes a single piston add-on for e-brakes but it would be another mounting point to engineer into it.

    Do people not use the trans to keep it from moving? Good old Arizona with all of the flatness. And most race cars remove the e brake.

    My thoughts exactly... I've given up arguing that e brakes are practically useless

    Seems like my car is always parked on an incline. Some sort of E brake is a must for me. I have an extra set of Cobra calipers in the garage and would love to put them on the rear of the Cobra.
