diff conversion toyota hiace to torana

Has anyone ever used a toyota hiace van diff in a torana but converted it to disk brake I am doing this mod because after 5 laps on the track the brakes are begining to loose feal due to the drums expanding as the car is set up with brake drag to allow better controll of the (drifting) if you would call it that.
it works quite well for 5 laps or so but fades off to fast to predict without crashing .

my thoughts would be to use something like a F@#d disk roter and machine up a boss to fit it to the axle, remove the backing plate assembly and fabricate a mount for the caliper (4 spot or more) using something like titanium pads like the sprint cars use .

any thoughts on this PLEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ALSO IT IS RUNNING SPRINT CAR SPLIT VALVE SHOCKS,
FULL FABRICATED CHASSIS
TUNING OF THE SUSPENSION CAN BE ACHIEVED TO ASSIST THE BRAKING IT IS A 4.3 DIFF RATIO IT IS A STRONG DIFF IT JUST NEEDS THE BRAKES TO WORK FOR THE WHOLE RACE....

Why dont you try an elec brake controller to apply pressure to the rears as they start to fade? Could also try elec fans in ducting to pump air to the rears. And split the braking system at the master to a 3 way system?

Or change your driving style lol. A well set up car with tuned suspension shouldn't need brake drag to slide plus its just causing power loss As you need the rear wheels spinning to control the rear end with the accelerator while you steer the front. Give's a quicker run in and out of the corners.
If i had not of done my back this is how i would have wooped Q-Ball in the 500 lapper in Alex lmao... JP

You could also drill some holes in the drums to allow the hot gases to escape. Your brake fade is caused by a build up of hot gases that forms a nice cushion between the brake shoe and the drum. I have experimented with this before on an EH and had good results. It is similar in theory to cross drilled rotors on disc brakes.

EEEEK drilling drums ok Im listening but wondering where did you drill them on the bolt up face for the rims or did you get a little brave and drill the expansion ring face that thought is good but shattering if you know what i mean

Many years ago, well before rear discs became the rage, a popular method of cooling the rear brakes on Camaro's etc was to drill 5 largish holes in the drums to allow cool air into the rear brakes.

I read about it in a couple of different hotrod mags way back then. Apparently it gave a similar result to running a disc, without the associated costs. It was seen as the easy fix for the man on a budget.

The holes were spaced between each wheel stud hole, yet toward the middle of the drum, and were about as large as a golf ball in diameter.

Apparently open wheels(spoked) aided this cooling effect as well, as opposed to closed, disc type wheels(centreline type).

Regards,
Ross.

NO need to drill holes in brake drums and weaken them ,just drill hole in backing plate and mount as small electric vacuum pump , that way you can suck all those built up HOT GASES out of there and NO MORE CUSHION between brake shoe and drum , those brakes will work ace now..

Excellent thought with that there Wombat but I think that I will go for the disk conversion because the pro's outweigh the cons
with eaiser repair , less weight, less parts eaiser to clean and better use of the heat generated from excessive drag.
It may be a greater spinning mass but they are more efficiant.
And there is no greater fealing than going full tilt into a corner and fealing the G's of the moment when you are passing everyone that is backing off before the corner....

Drum brakes are more efficient than disc brakes, the action of drum brakes means they are self energizing and therefore dont need a brake booster when the whole system uses drums. Disc brakes just disperse the heat better and are obviously lest painful from an adjustment and maintainence point of view.
I drilled my drums through the friction surface, dont go overboard and taper the holes off so there are no hard edges, this will prevent cracking. I never had any cracking problems with mine.

My theory is this "If you do what you have always done you get what you have always got"

now that being said I have spent a great deal of time talking to sprint car drivers and super sedan drivers ect
and came up with a common thought they all run drag in the brakes with three wheel braking only in most cases and with the stagger from the tyres and infinant possable changes to the suspension you can achieve the turn in that the car requires "but" with brake drag you can run low, mid, and high on the corners you can run 2 inches off the wall through the whole corner without touching it at full speed just by using the brake pedal while holding the loud button flat and when you lift it the drive line is already under load so the max torque will be instant .
I found this out the hard way by going low pushing hard and with the traction that I had removed all the grip from the front wheels (the left front was 1.5 foot off the ground when I hit the wall) it wasnt as fun as it sounds im still rebuilding it now.
I do know that the argument about sprint cars is not so valid because they have more power but it is not how much you have its how you use it LOL
if your car is spitting 400-500 hp into the spectators faces via large chunks of mud its fun but it wont win you races.........
I have been criticised for trying the things that I do but if you think about it the car they said it would not work or air travel is a pipe dream you know where im going with this
thanks for your thoughts tho on the elec brakes good valid and easy to install most definatlly will think a lot about that one

hiace should be same as hilux...well centres are...if the axle tubes/ends are same you need the rear discs off a rear wheel drive pintara/skyline...HR30/31 IIRC.....the axles wheel flange needs a very light reduction in diameter to allow the disc to slip over, as well as change it to your stud pattern ....and you need to make up a very simple plate(have a template somewhere)to mount the caliper to the end of the axle tube....the handbrake uses the caliper to clamp the disc not an internal drum like commodores....hope this helps

From one "clay junkie" to another...I understand the rear brake drag....I just dont agree with it :)
Ok..a little background info......I started racing at 16 in an EH & moved through a coulpe of cars to arrive at the VL I now have...almost 15 years later..always in "Modified production".
HUGE amounts of ground can be made by getting into a corner further before lifting the right foot off, this is why I progressed from a lightened fly-wheel to an alloy job..nothing better than pedaling into corner whith e/one else going backwards!!
Personaly I HATE touching the brake pedal during a race..unless some goose is facing the wrong way!!!.
I would sujest an adjustable brake bias vale (or tap if you like), so you can increase/de-crease the amount of grunt the rear brakes have.
I have to agree with Hem-den 100%..you dont need brake drag to get around a corner, you need handling or diferent driving style (pls. I'm not trying to be a smart a**).
Althought the VL & the 2 Toranas were/are much better, even the old EH could be "driven with the right foot", that is, lift the foot & tip it in( or with the EH THROW it in!!), then feed the power back on, the more it sticks, the further the foot goes down.
Do you have an adjustable Pan-ard rod or does your car have a Watts link.
I get where your coming from, I just thing with some set up tuning you might gain more usable grunt & a better handling car.
What sort of track/size/surface....Engine/gearbox/carby?...tyres/class/modifications???

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

Firstly I believe I have spoke to you once before about my motor I have a 186 with a custom cam, solid lifters, roller rockers, custom port & cc'd head that flows 300hp, 500 holley snorting through a cane 4brl manifold,ducted velocity stack for forced induction if you call it that, custom exhaust that is matched to the spec of the cam for the right back pressure running 10.5 - 1 comp 246 hp at wheels in 2nd with massive torque malory ignition module (digital with 2 stage rev limiter's) 100000v solid state malory coil lightend everything and turning to 7700rpm at the end of the straight doing 115 kph with a 3 speed running second cog through a 4.3 toyo diff with a std 4 link torana setup outer tyre/rear right is 245x60x14 on 8" rim with huge offset inner is same rim (huge footprint) but tyre is a 235x50x14 soft compound retreded slick caps permitted I have kept the std controll arms because it is better to have a sacrafice point that is easy to change there is so much more to tell but i think i answered all of your questions about the eng and by the way thanks for the help last year with the q&a about crank and cam combos.
now with the track it was Archerfield in Qld it's a 1/4 mile 12/15 deg rake and compound is 70/30 clay/recycled concrete verrrrrrry grippy the class is a/grade with the roof wings (Im currently grafting a Sprint car wing to the roof) it may sound bad but it actually looks good
the roll bars are from bumper to bumper like a nascar unlimited mods for suspension but must use origional mounts all the floor and p/shelf is removed and fabricated one is yet to be fitted but it is a internal wing as such fiberglass everything i can except the roof the car tips 1000kg with my 98kgs inside full of fuel which im going to methanol soon as budget permits but getting 246hp on pump fuel now it has a lot of potencal the rest is pritty standard rules but Isay if it fits and its light and it makes ya go faster use it to hell with how much it costs.
So did I cover your Questions I hope so Oh no wats link or panhard bars fitted to my car yet ....
THIS CAR HAS BEEN BUILT AND TESTED OVER THREE YEARS NOW THE LAST STEP WAS THE BIG ONE CUT THE CAR UP AND GLASS EVERYTHING REBUILD IT FROM THE GROUND UP AND IT IS STILL IN THE BUILD PROCESS NOW
reply to this please Q-ball with thoughts of the package that im putting together.
we do approx 16.9 to 17.5 lap times on the feature but I want the lap record Its my destany!!!!!!!!!!
there is more about the setup to know but will tell in further posts

Mr Q-ball!!??...na..sorry thats me Dad :)
Being a die-hard speedway fan, I cant even go on holiday without susing out a speedway...I've been to Archerfiel a couple of times.
Now I'm no Speedway Guru, but I will try and share as much of my knowledge as I can...not e/thing I say will work on your car, BUT it mite head you in the right direction with a bit of tweaking.

Panard Bar. The one fitted to the Commodore is adjustable & helps "fine-tune" any adjustments to the spring rate/height or shock adjustments. It is mounted in the std possition you would find on a Commodore BUT the mounting points have been reversed, that is the right-hand side that normaly bolts to the diff is now mounted to the body & the LH side of the bar is mounted to the diff.
Secondly it adjusts up & down at both ends, by moving the bar up or down you alter the "roll centre", this removes or adds push to the front or takes/adds "slide" to the rear.
The trick is to have BOTH ends adjustable so as the bar goes up or down, it stays paralel to the ground.

Watts link. I have seen a couple of Toranas with this, none of my cars have had them. They were simply cut-down Fraud XF ones, once fitted it was "set & forget". BUT I think you could make it adjstable by making the centre mount movable...bit like a V8 Supercar.

Wheel alignment. Very important, even the old EH would benifit from a good W/a. I run about 5mm toe-out, can get a little "wandery" it a straight line, but turns in REAL well.
Dont forget "leed" that is the RHS of the car is longer than the LHS...dont confuse this with caster, its simply the distance from rear axle centre to front axel centre.

Rear Sway bar. On all my cars a rear sway bar was a complette waste of time, none ever may it to the second meeting. Tightened the rear of the car far to much.

Front sway bar. Definite benifit on the EH & LJ's. The LJ's only ever used a std. GTR/XU1 type bar, anything else was too stiff. NOTE..all cars were set with the sway bar neutral, that is with the car sitting on the ground, the sway bar had no pressure on it. The VL has adjustable rod-ends on the sway bar links, LJ we simply left the clamps loose until the car was back on the ground & the EH had a sway bar link made out of threaded rod, just wind the nuts up or down to set it neutral.

Suspension Bushes. Nolathane is good, BUT too much is bad, the LJ ran Nolathane front upper control arm bushes & caster bar bushes e/thing else was (new) rubber.
The rear ran all std. rubber except Nolathane upper & lower shocker bushes.
Hows that for a start??
HHmmmmm...may-be I need to start a Speedway page in Holdenpedia.....
Q-ball.
(Edit)..I have had no experiance with wings..but after watching the Street Stockers on a vist to Horsham a couple of years back, they make a BIG difference to corner speed

Buddy i used to race at archerfield and yandina in QLD with a supersedan and late model, and torana in the holden v ford class.
Archerfield doesn't need brake drag at all.
With my SS i ran 5 wides all round with 265's on front and pass side rear and a 315 on drivers rear with a set up suspension used to steer and throttle the corners.

I used to hold the track record for archerfield but could not catch Mark whalley at yandina lol (step father)

Q-ball i thought you might have bit at my comment on the 500 lapper? now i am just hurt lmao.

You will win, as my centura got sold, and dusty is getting the block, and rockers from it.
So unless i get fit and run 500 laps i aint got no chance.

The only downfall of vic speedway is they dont have a big SuperSedan or late model class. As I have 2 rollers in storage and a frame.

LoL i dont think a 186 would come close to the hemi i ran, even me on 4cyl.
I had 350 chevs that could not keep with me.
It seem's you have not experienced the feeling of a worked 265 hemi in a 900kg centura?

1st this is a Holden site isnt it (lol)
2nd you can have all the power that you want but ya still got to get around the car in front
Finally your angle is that it would have won this can only be proven with a result......
as you said you sold it so we will never know!!!!!!!!!!!
would have been good to have a race with you and Q-ball and why not make it a 600 lapper ....lol...
sory just playing but i think it would not be easy you would have to work for it or take me and Q-ball out.....

Wont go there.

"2nd you can have all the power that you want but ya still got to get around the car in front"

Didn't matter where i was or if i had to go 3 wide, i had plenty of torque and hp from the 390rwhp and 626nm to keep corner speed up to get me in front.

"Finally your angle is that it would have won this can only be proven with a result......"

This car held archerfield shootout lap record, and 3 out of 3 years straight wore 'VIC 1' under vicsports, two from me driving.

"would have been good to have a race with you and Q-ball and why not make it a 600 lapper ....lol...
sory just playing but i think it would not be easy you would have to work for it or take me and Q-ball out....."

Vic final is a 500 lap feature race, the only way it's not easy is when i start last and the rear pack box's me in.

I put it in as a laugh to see if he would bite and I hooked up to a deep sea racing mullet on that one lol
didnt think I would get that reaction ahh it's all good

on another note is there realy a 500 lapper in Vic if so I will tow my car down for it we only have one enduro race a year up here and it's only a 50 lapper I loved it last year and that was the meating that I hit the wall in the first heat.

still finished the class feature and the king of the ring event plus the 50 lapper (should have seen the damage before I went out on the enduro broken controll arm on the diff missing pannels ect) still came 4th out of 26 cars and I could only drive at approx 10% of its pertencial.

So Sorry Hem den If you got offended by the last one but you bit hard .lol

Now before I go there I will say (now dont laugh) when I'm going full tilt through the corners as the car was, I passed 10 cars in three corners now the throttle was only at 1/2 pedal as I said the torque is unbelieveable from the setup that i have and this 1/2 pedal is also the same when i apply the brakes if i go full noise on the loud button it just wants to lift the front wheels and put me into the wall (thats why im rebuilding it) as I hit the wall the tyres rode the wall and let me just say the whole car was airborne but silly me kept going untill the next lap where the tyre blew, I spun,BBBBBAAANNNGGG!!!!!!!!!! that was a large hit in the rear that twisted everything.
so after a couple of hundred smacks with me old mate sledge and the porta power I only missed 1 race and finished all other by driving into the corners holding the accellerator down to the same point and standing on the brake (HARD) if you do it right you dont even have to turn the wheel left at all, that is if you have the right hand front wheel brake caliper removed it is quite wierd actually to do this picture this driving upto a wall that wont moove as fast as you can turning to the wall hitting the brake and going the other way it feals wrong but the car seams to like it more it handles better I think it preloads the suspension before the dinamic weight transfer happens if you know what i mean
And yes I am thinking about the swey bar but only want to make 1 change at a time I will talk a little more on monday must go and play poker with speedway mates and beat them there to .LOL

What even feel more wrong is when you steer left and the car veers right...
Was an interesting experience, i learned not to let my father in-law help to a wheel change in between heats when you are racing against him and winning. He forgot to tighter the drivers rear center nut up. Accident or on purpose i don't know? lmao but was a quiet night after the meet at the yandina caravan park lol.

You should start a new thread for this mate.
Worth $10 to $20 i reckon and on ebay sometimes they only get the 99 cent start price.
