Billet Hubs

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Vdub Engineering has developed a billet hub for T1 front ends. The hubs are made from billet aluminum and are machined to exacting tolerances. The hub pictured on the right is intended for use with VW mk4 brake components (1.8T). The hubs use stock beetle bearings for easy installation.

Vdub Engineering can machine a hub to your custom specs, i.e. any disk and any bolt pattern with stock beetle bearings. The hubs can be machined with various front spacings, so you can decrease/increase your track without spacers. Imagine the possibilities:

– 944 brakes with 5-100mm on BJ car with no spindle modifications

-1.8T (5-100mm) brakes on LP T1’s with no spindle mods.

Any combo you can dream up, we can build. We can build hubs for any car out there, please inquire.

Custom hubs from $C550pr (please inquire), built to your specs.

944 Ebrake adapters

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

944 Rear emergency brake clip.

This kit included everything you need to adapt 944 emergency brake assembly to your stock beetle handbrake cable. They are compatible with either the 944NA or 944T brakes. The clips are CAD designed and laser cut for a perfect fit.

With these clips you will never have to fuss with custom made cables, or crimp-on cable ends that can break with use. By using stock beetle cables you insure a strong quality cable that is easily available.

Also included are extensions that marry the stock beetle handbrake cable end to the 944 tubular pieces. You will need to use the 944 steel tube (piece about 100mm long). See here for more details regarding 944 rear brake conversions.

The kit includes 2 ‘swan’ ebrake clips and 2 extensions, both finished in a durable black coating.

If you don’t have the stock 944 tube, order part VDE-010-036 which includes one piece aluminum tubes and swans for the early 944NA backingplate.

Kit’s for the 944 aluminum arms contain only the 2 swan clips. The stock beetle cable end can be slightly filed down to fit directly into the aluminum arm.
