CTS-V Calipers are an excellent cost effective solution. We installed those on the PUSA Camaro back in 2010. Next thing you know GM is installing them on the ZL1 And then a 27mm solid front bar on the 1LE And then the 305/30/19s on the Z/28 Not to mention the upgraded front sub-frame bushes in 2012 and the rock hard front sub-frame bushes in the ZL1

Excuse me while I take a deep breath

In our efforts to stay ahead of the Camaro TEAM (which isn't easy ) I have been speaking with Brembo for about 18 months about killer brakes for the 5th Gen. The calipers need to be a step below a full racing brake so they can be used on the street. (Full racing brake calipers are high maintenance.) The GT-R Caliper is spot on. It has no exterior dust seals to over heat and disintegrate. Is machine from a block of billet aluminum. SS Inserts to insulate the piston from the heat of the backing plate.






The calipers will work with iron or composite rotors. They have a new composite rotor that does not need to be replaced when scratched like the OE CF rotors.

If you have driven a ZL1 you will understand what I am about to say. My lasting impression of a ZL1 is the brakes are beyond ridiculous. You feel like you can stop on a dime from ANY speed.

How far along are the RB Calipers?
