What do you expect? it's a radiator being sent via courier from the US.

I have bought a lots of gear from summit, have had no problems at all and the prices have been excellent even when including shipping.

For two Wilwood calipers:

Part Subtotal $499.90 USD
Additional Shipping Charge $122.99 USD
Delivery and Handling Charge $24.95 USD
Order Subtotal $647.84 USD

That is with DHL Priority, Surface mail was $40.00 USD cheaper.

That's $718.00 AUD landed for the pair, i'd take Garndi's offer if he can get them here for the price he is estimating (you would also save on postage of the brackets).

Hey Mate,

The Wilwood Midilite Callipers VIA the UK (Rally Design) are £139.50GBP each.

That = $480AUD for the pair.

I don't have a set of callipers at hand to get the weight for the postage (Unless I take them off a car...). Going off volume metric weight I would say that the postage would be between $60AUD - $80AUD (express air mail).

It may be better price wise to get them local from an Australian Wilwood distributor....

Cheers
Andy


i just heard back from rally design and they said they are a special order and will cost £167.98 each.
and take 8 weeks to get them here

what does the pedal feel like? I'd expect with the larger piston area the pedal would feel a bit spongey

I doubt any Australian supplier is going to beat the Summit price.. all they are going to end up doing is bringing them in themselves and adding on mark up + GST.

So far no one has beaten $718.00AUD (pair) landed from Summit.

I have this conversion on my van & it is fantastic, pedal feel is really nice, it all feels well balanced, stops in a straight line too. This is a video below from Barkston, you can see how well they work, I have just bought them for my sons Justy too. This makes a HUGE difference to the stopping power.

Seen your PM and I am waiting on a price from RallyDesign....

However I doubt that by the time I order them and repost to you that they will be cheaper than you will get from Summitracing.

But I will get you a price.

Also, I am placing another order on Monday for the Brackets.

Here is a latest pic of an install..... Cheers GTiSlim

just curious, can you make a rear bracket for 2 pot wilwood?
I'm using a custom made front 4-pot wilwood with 2 piece rotor.

Called them today, gave them the part number BU -120 - 7376 and they said that they will do them £139each (did not seem to worry about not having them in stock). Thats 241.856 AUD per Calliper.

For people in the UK.... The total including Postage for x 2 Callipers = 338.99 GBP.

They also said that if you order 4 x Midilites the price is 117.00 GBP = 203.639 AUD per Calliper.

So that's the price on the Callipers from Rallydesign.co.uk. If your interested in getting these and want them 'via the UK', go direct to Rallydesign. I am only going to sell the Wilwood brackets to suit these Callipers as this will make the package more affordable (not double handling the items). I would also suggest paying the extra for express air postage and only have 2-4 days wait time....

Have a chat with Rallydesign...

Cheers
Andy
