Thread: Atom 3 Hand Brake Installation Question

    Atom 3 Hand Brake Installation Question

    Hey Guys,

    I'm in the process of installing a hand brake on my AA3. I'm pretty sure TMI forgot to send me the bracket that actually attaches the hand brake caliper to the hub. Does anyone have a good picture of one of the hand brake calipers mounted properly? I have a bag of bolts/misc parts left to install but definitely nothing that appears to connect the caliper to the hub. I'm also curious as to what the 90deg bracket is used for that came in the kit.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Anyone have an ebrake setup on their car that might be willing to snap a picture of the backside of one of the rotors for me?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I only have my Atom 2 so it's a bastard implementation. I'm not sure what TMI is using, but here's a UK A3 screen capture of a rear caliper:


    *edited* I guess the thumbnail URL has some malware links so it's removed. Thanks for the head's up, Terry.

    Thanks McFred! Still kind of difficult to see but I appreciate it anyways. I'm still waiting on a call back from TMI. Anyone in particular you guys have reached out to for questions/etc. over there? I'm sure they're busy but I've called, left a voicemail and sent an email...still no word and that way 2 days ago :/

    Thanks,

    Chris

    My car has the Mr. Parker parking brake. I believe the bracket assy is from Palatov. If I remember this evening I will take a picture.

    For what it's worth, here are two pictures of my parking brake setup.
