The brakes now feel smooth and the grip feels more consistent with pedal travel.

I could sure feel the difference in weight picking up the pair of RB rotors at the same time, and then picking up both stock rotors. You can feel that 12 lb difference.
I'll put some pics up soon as I get them out of my iphone.
It was a pleasure meeting you Mark, and working on your car. I am glad the Racing Brake kit is working out for you (as if there were any doubts). We have had some good experience with selling and installing Racing Brake's kits for the Corvette Z06, and they are fantastic!! I would expect no less, from the Camaro kit, and they have NOT let us down!.

BTW: Christopher and I will be setting up that photo shoot for your car here very soon, and those who have not seen your car in it's full glory will be able to truly appreciate it, as we do!!

I look forward to installing more of Racing Brake's kits!! CAMARO'S ROCK!!

Thank you Brian! You guys did an outstanding job. Here are the pics as promised. The first shows what you see when you open the box from Racing Brake; they are beautiful. Next is the stock rotor on the hub, then the RB rotor on the hub. Next is a shot of the stock rotor behind my rim and then RB's rotor behind my rim. As you can see the RB rotors have a very high-tech look to them.

If any customers in the Orange County or SoCal area get these rotors, I highly recommend Brian and the guys at GT Pro; they did a great job of installing everything including the stainless steel braided brake lines.

And as for the Racing Brake rotors; they are absolutely beautiful and work as advertised. I couldn't be happier with them!

i might have missed this somewhere else, but what exactly is the benefit of having stainless steel lines? and if i wanted to paint my calipers like you did, when taking them off the car, does it drain the fluid?

brakes look good! i'll be purchasing some of these rotors & pads once my stockers need to be replaced!

They don't expand like the plain rubber lines do. When you hit the pedal, all the force goes to the pistons in the calipers. Gives you a lot firmer pedal.

I only used aprox 4 ozs of fluid putting on these lines. I replaced one at a time and bled that line before moving on to the next one. Less chance of air working its way up the line. And you only need to bleed the inner bleeder since there is no way for air to get into the caliper itself.

+1 on the expanding rubber brake lines. Brake system is a hard line all the way from master cylinder to the wheel wells, then stock rubber hoses connect to the calipers. Braided lines help to continue the "Hard lines" out the the calipers.

Used the G2 rotor paint kit. You can get their stock colors for about $45 or get the paint matched to your paint code for $100. I got the matched paint. No need to take them off.

It will take about 5 hours to do, car on 4 jack stands, wheels off, mask calipers, run around your car 5 times painting the calipers as you go. They will start looking good after the 4th coat & finish up by the 5th. Paint is self leveling and hardens. You have to be ready to go, because once the hardner goes in the paint, you got 4 hours to finish!

+1 on the reduction in expansion. It works out to about 99% stiffer than OE rubber lines in lab testing.

Also, top-quality stainless steel lines (like Goodridge) don't let moisture get into the brake fluid over time like rubber lines do -- another plus.
