    Does someone have a picture of the rear stub axle for drum brakes? I'm trying to figure out if there is an adapter that can be made so that I don't have to continue hunting for an EGT rear stub axle to do the rear disc conversion.

    What state are you in? There is a 2000 ZX2 S/r and a 97 Tracer near me with rear discs..

    I'm in California. Is the S/R motor and tranny still in the car? If so and they check out I'd like to pick up the motor and tranny along with the computer and CAI. Basically whatever I need to do a complete driveline swap.

    As far as the DB's I'll need everything I need for the swap except for the rotors. I will be using some aftermarket slotted and drilled ones so I don't need the ones that originally came with S/R.

    Message me and we can discuss the particulars.

    The engine and trans are still in the S/R, but I don't know if they are any good (odo had 193k). There is no difference (other than the blue valve cover) between a regular ZX2 and an S/R engine and the trans is the same.

    The Iceman was gone when I got there, but I did get the PCM (along with the shifter, Borla, master cyl and struts). I don't know when I would be getting back to that yard (I only go there about 2x a year), but I can keep my eyes open at the 2 I go to a lot (I passed on another Tracer rear disc set). The Tracer set will work without the ABS (you don't use the sensors). I have heard of people using the disc/drum MC on a conversion, but I got the correct one for mine (auto, 4 wheel disc, no ABS). I have another S/R MC and the modified EGT one I originally used (auto res instead of the MTX).

    DAMN! The Iceman intake and computer are what I was most interested in. Oh well!

    So how about that DB setup? I'd really appreciate it if you could pull one that you see that is in good condition.

    Thanks!
