WHAT SIZE E-BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER SHOULD I ORDER (3/4″ or 5/8″ diameter)?
Please refer to the sizing chart below:
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ‘PASS THROUGH’ AND ‘RESERVOIR’ ASD E-BRAKE SYSTEMS?
ASD’s ‘Reservoir’ E-brake incorporates its own brake reservoir working independently from the vehicle’s brake system. ASD’s ‘Pass Through’ E-brake works in-line with the existing vehicle’s brake system.
WHAT E-BRAKE SYSTEM SHOULD I CHOOSE (PASS THROUGH OR RESERVOIR)?
Vehicle applications that have one brake caliper on each wheel will use the ‘Pass Through’ system. However, if you are running two brake calipers on each wheel you will need the ‘Reservoir’ ASD e-Brake.
DO I NEED THE -3AN ADAPTER?
ASD offers master cylinder adapters to fit -3AN* braided lines for its E-Brake products. Two adapters are used for the inlet and outlet ports on ‘Pass Through’ master cylinders and one adapter is used for ‘Reservoir’ master cylinders. These are master cylinder -3AN adapters only, -3AN braided lines must be purchased separately.
* Note: -3AN is an U.S. military-grade fitting specification used to connect flexible and rigid tubing carrying fluids
DO I NEED THE HARD LINE FITTING ADAPTER?
The Hard Line Fitting Adapter converts the 7/16-24 thread in the “Pass Through” master cylinder inlet port to a very common 3/8-24 thread as used with 3/16” hard line brake nuts.
Used only with “Pass Through” master cylinders. Highly recommended when plumbing with 3/16” steel hard lines (and when not using -3AN flexible lines).
DOES THE ASD HYDRAULIC E-BRAKE WORK WITH DRUM BRAKES?
We do not recommend use with drum brakes.
IS THERE A BRAKE PAD YOU RECOMMEND USING IF YOU’RE RUNNING A WILWOOD DUAL CALIPER SET-UP?
We recommend using a Wilwood “B” compound pad for the best locking capabilities with your e-brake.
IS THERE A BRAKE PAD YOU RECOMMEND USING IF YOU’RE RUNNING AN OEM CALIPER SET-UP?
Any non-race type compound will work well, which means any brake pad that is not recommended for high temperature use (normally rear brake rotors on drift cars do not see temperatures high enough for race compounds to be effective).
When available for your application, the Hawk DTC60 compound is a great choice (but not required).
SHOULD I USE ANY PARTICULAR TYPE OF BRAKE FLUID?
You can keep using whichever brake fluid you currently use in your car. We recommend a minimum of DOT3 and prefer DOT4 for all performance cars.
CAN I PURCHASE JUST THE HANDLE?
Our ASD-designed handle is only sold as part of the ASD Hydraulic e-brake. However, ASD E-brake handles damaged in racing accidents can be replaced for prior customers upon proof of original purchase and by shipping the customer’s original handle to ASD for disposal.
CAN I HAVE MY ORDER SHIPPED VIA UNITED STATES POSTAL SERVICE?
Unfortunately, ASD Motorsports does not use United States Postal Service for a shipping option for our E-Brakes.
DOES MY ORDER INCLUDE INSURANCE AND TRACKING?
ASD domestically ships its product exclusively with UPS, the nation’s largest shipping and logistic company, because of its service, reach and low-rates. ASD receives a volume rate discount which we pass along to our customers automatically bundled with insurance and tracking services. Once your shipping label is created, you will automatically receive a tracking number via email from ASD.
ASD international shipments are exclusively handled by DHL, the world’s largest logistic company. Through past experience we have determined DHL has the largest global reach, lowest rates and the best service, which includes insurance, customs clearing and tracking services. Once your shipping label is created, you will automatically receive a tracking number via email from ASD.
WHY IS SHIPPING OVERSEAS SO EXPENSIVE?
We only use DHL International Express because of their fast shipping, quality of service and they don’t lose packages! In most cases when using this service, your order will arrive in 2-4 business days after leaving our facility. These services are essentially “air freight” services, which is why they are more expensive.
Your DHL Express shipping cost also includes customs broker fees, customs import costs and fees, and all associated tariffs for import into your country. These costs are all calculated automatically and included in your shipping total. Other services appear cheaper initially, however almost always cost more upon final delivery once all additional importation and customs costs are included.
Other international shipping options can be discussed with an ASD representative when multiple products are purchased and can be shipped in one larger box (get your friends together!)
Sometimes your international order can ship from an international ASD warehouse. If this is available the appropriate shipping cost will be automatically calculated during check out.
CAN I BECOME A DEALER/WHOLESALER?
Unfortunately, we do not offer dealer/wholesale programs. Our goal is to keep the retail cost of our products as low as possible, and also to ensure customer support and customer questions are answered accurately, directly from ASD Motorsports
AFTER I PLACE MY ORDER, WHEN WILL MY ORDER SHIP?
In most cases, if your order is placed before 1:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) Monday-Friday, it will ship the same day or the following business day. During our Formula Drift or International race weekends however, orders may be shipped the following Monday – Tuesday unless otherwise stated. You will receive an email confirmation from ASD Motorsports and your selected shipping service with your tracking information as soon as the shipping label is generated. Shipping labels are generated on the day of shipment.
