Designing a brake master cylinder stopper

Postby jezza » Mon Jan 09, 2012 10:14 am

Thought I'd post up a few images of my work in progress...

I've not been able to find a seperate BMCS available for the Altezza/IS200 so thought I'd have a bash at designing one.

I've seen the cusco combined front strut and BMCS but it would be good if there was one available that was compatiable with existing aftermarket strut braces. I'm going to buy a strut brace soon so I know what clearance is required.

A lot of work gone into that. Looks very tasty. Well done. Only one thing I can see is the surface of the bolt is very small , maby tack a washer to the end. But again its only a small thing. Keep up the tasty work.

looks good

only thing I can see is the web that you have under the bolt will foul the base ring of the strut brace tower, maybe mirror what you have done on the other side.

Good shout. Without having a brace its difficult to foresee how they would interfere. There seems to be a dormant captive nut further back on the tower which I might be able to utilise. Updates to follow.

During prolonged heavy braking your brake master cylinder will twist and move, which will make your brake pedal feel all sloppy and give rubbish feedback, the stopper is to try and prevent this. Generally you wont ever actually need one of these on a road car and is more for a bling factor in the engine bay.

This is one my mate made me, strut brace won't fit over my turbo engine so no worry for me
