Below is a picture of the rear twin piston brake caliper and its master cylinder which i got from The Edge.

Pictured below is the mount for the rear brake caliper pictured above. The 3 holes go onto your bearing flange bolts and the caliper then mounts onto the other 2 holes using the spacers to move the caliper outward to fit the brake disk as necessary.

Below is the rear brake disk from The Edge. Its laser cut from plate and fits onto the drive hubs in the second picture.

The brake assembly is now installed on the rear axle. This includes the disk hub, disk, caliper mount and twin piston caliper, all the parts are from the Edge. I had to turn the bolts on the bearing flange around so the nuts are to the centre of the buggy because they were very close to hitting on the brake disk mount bolts on when the axle was spun. There is about 10mm of distance now.
