    Default Widetrack brake lines

    Can somebody with a widetrack setup let me know how long the front brake lines are?

    ....and if you have std brakes, do they use a banjo fitting, or do they screw directly into the caliper?

    Here is a pic of my current setup

    Brake lines including fittings are about 13" long or so. Distance from body to inside of caliper about 9". Fittings are the same as your photo. You should be ok w/ what you have, based on the photograph. My brake lines are stretched more taut than yours. Note that I have uprated calipers and the fitting on the caliper is horizontal, not vertical.

    Thanks Chris. I think my car has lines from an "uprated brake/widetrack" setup. Looking at the pictures of the replacement lines on the RMSCI and Caterham.co.uk sites, it looks like the "std brake/widetrack" lines have banjo fittings, so I was thinking that my setup might be wrong.

    ...and now I have a widetrack set of wishbones, but need to figure out the brake line situation before I fit them.
