    It's a crate supercharged 2.0l GM engine. They used the in various different model including the Cobalt SS

    Lots of the engine /trans is actually labeled Saab.

    So NJ Law requires that all cars have a mechanical parking brake. The solution is a pair of Wilwood 1.62" Piston/.810" Mechanical Spot Brake Calipers mounted to the rear hubs.

    RCR ship for some reason with two left calipers which makes the setup / installation asymmetrical. Rather than deal with that I was able to swap one left for the correct part a right!

    First step is to drill and mount the calipers which involved drilling and tapping the rear hubs.





    Next up was the cables - The supplied cables were for the RCR GT40 which weren't long enough for the RCR. A bit of research turned up Lokar EC-80FU Universal Emergency Brake Cables and clevis joints. I needed to make mounting tabs on the hubs for the cables - I made a couple of brackets out aluminum angle and drilled and tapped the hubs again to mount them.





    At the other end the parking brake fits tight in behind the shifter box - I added an extension arm to support the cable bracket . I need to add a bit more support to the cable arm as its flexing under load.

    When the car arrived the shifter pattern was completely reversed due to the engine being moved to the rear and using the stock cable mounts.

    A few emails to Jim @ cableshift.com solved the issue - Jim was able to recondition / switch out a few bits and for a fraction of the cost of a whole new setup got me back on track.

    Sadly the new control box is a slightly different shape so the existing mounts didn't work. A bit more aluminum and I made some plates to attach to existing tabs.





    Whilst I was at it I upgraded the cable mount to an upgraded one which doesn't have rubber inserts which tightens up the linkage.




    And finally the drivers view

    Nothing like a full size go-cart to get your juices flowing. I need a ride in this for sure!

    Iteration 3 of the exhaust...

    I opted for the Flowmaster exhaust as it had a slightly higher volume and a longer flange to attach it to the existing pipe.

    I hated the black though so a couple of coats of High temp paint and its silver. Of course explaining to my wife quite why I needed to bake my exhaust in her over for 2 hours was rather entertaining.

    I used a 6" stainless 304 clamp designed for diesel smoke stacks to make a second support mount to the engine. This stiffens everything up nicely and allows all of the exhaust to move with the engine.
