Post GB: Technafit SS Braided Brake/Clutch Lines
MazdaRacer Motorsports Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line Group Buy

Group Buy Details
This group buy is being brought to you by MazdaRacer Motorsports. I am not some big company, it's just me. In all my years of modding and racing i have made some good contacts and i am just giving back to the Mazda community. This is not my full-time job, it's just a side thing i like to do. I have been doing GB's with many other products, including custom one of a kind parts and have been doing GBs with Technafit for a few years now. I can assure this and all my group buys are 100% legit with a 100% great customer service record.

I have been doing the orders in phases. Usually 5+ at a time. If interest is high, i'll do multiple orders throughout the group buy, this way you don't have to wait untill the end to have your lines shipped. Of course payment is needed before i place you on the order list.

There is no minimum order requirement. It just goes along untill it ends. I have been doing these GBs pretty regularly over the past 4-5 years, so if you miss out on this, the wait is not that long for the next. I guess on average, i do them every 2-3 months. But if you can't wait that long, just PM me, and we'll make it happen.

This initial Group Buy will be open for 3 weeks. (Ends Aug 10th)

The Product
The lines are made by Techna-Fit. Great improvement over stock, many times the stock brake lines will expand when the fluid is pumped through them to the calipers, SS Brake Lines eliminate line expansion. The kits come complete with new banjo bolts and washers or other hardware (when applicable). The threaded hardline head is on a swivel, so you never have to twist the line to thread it to any hardline/caliper. All lines are DOT certified (as opposed to just DOT aproved) These are high quality machined fittings. Feel free to order just fronts or just rears or all 4. The pictures below do not show the sleeves, however you are able to order the sleeves in 4 different colors: Clear, Smoke, Red and Blue AT NO EXTRA CHARGE!!!!

Availability
Any Mazda or other model car is included. So if you have a friend/GF/wife/family member with an Acura, Toyota, Ford, Dodge... whatever, they can get in on this group buy. It's pretty much open to whatever lines Technafit produces. NOTE: Pricing for other Mazdas and other car makes are subject to a quote. They may or may not match the offered GB price here. Please PM for more info and include all necessary info regarding the car.

Ordering
Ordering is simple, you just need to PM the info requested below to me (Mazdaracer). You will receive a quick reply to confirm receipt. By doing so, you are agreeing to send payment on time. Please allow enough lead time for any changes after you've submitted your info.

Payment
Payment is due by the close of the Group Buy. (Of course payments can be made at anytime during the group buy as well) If payment has not yet been received, you will get one (1) curtousy PM and be expected to reply within 24 hours. If no reply is received within 24 hours, then sorry, you lose your spot. It's not fair to the other buyers to wait. Paypal is the much prefered method of payment. I am open to help and make arrangements, but i must have some lead time. Please, if at all avoidable, do not PM with 1 day left in the GB saying you have a 1 week delay. If you are of the non paypal users, Money Order payments may be arranged.

Paypal payments: number98@mazdaracer.com

I have edited the info form to better identify braking systems. Would hate to send drum lines to a guy who did a disc swap on an RS...

I also added for any special notes you may have regarding a brake swap or whatever.

Please use this edited info form. thank you.

Frequently asked questions about stainless steel brake lines

What are stainless steel brake lines?
There are a number of descriptions of this product, but for our purposes we define this product as follows: stainless steel braided brake lines, are made using teflon hose. Teflon hose has an extruded teflon core, with a stainless steel wire braid around it. The ends are then permanently crimped on each end.

What are DOT approved hoses?
There are many claims of DOT approved hoses. A couple of items to note. If the hoses are claimed to be DOT approved, a good way to confirm this is to ask for a DOT number. If they actually are DOT approved, they will have a DOT number issued to them. Most hoses are what they call DOT certified, which means that they meet or exceed the Dot certification that is outlined in FMVSS 106 specifications. This means that they have been tested in accordance with those specifications and submitted to the Department of Highway Transportation for recognition. These tests are done independently of the DOT.

Why use stainless steel brake lines?
There are some advantages to using stainless steel brake lines; one is reduced volumetric expansion. Overtime and under continuous use, OEM rubber lines can swell and expand, exposing the driver to brake fade. The rubber cover is also vulnerable to attacks from the ozone layer (rubber deteriorates and causes a failure). In extreme applications (Auto X, racing, hard riving) rubber hoses might susceptible to debris, thus causing failure. Stainless steel hoses give some protection from these issues.

In some applications, where you have modified your vehicle (lowered, raised, or changed some major part, I.E. calipers) your only option is have custom lines made for your application. Also, in some cases it is hard to obtain OEM style rubber lines for some older applications.

Why get lines that have a plastic cover on them?
Having a plastic cover over the stainless steel lines gives added protection from flying debris; it also gives some abrasion protection from the line rubbing on suspension parts, in extreme braking conditions, with full compression (most movement of line).

I got a chance to get some pics of the red and blue sleeves. These are Mazda3 lines, but the sleeves will look just like these.

As you can see the sleeves cover the entire braid and are fitted under the black rubber seals at the ends. Very high quality.




These things are HOT!!!
