The owners name is Warren Linn(i think sorry bad with names)...I have his business card but couldnt find it in the stack. I will be back there next week to pick up some upgraded pistons for my stock calipers and beg them to make a forged one for us.

I was able to tap 170 mph on my Ducati 999S when I did a track day there. I want to get my ZL1 out there and run it! The lead instructor was teaching us to stay up near the wall to get thru the chicane cleanly, what an adrenaline rush!

Only thing I don't like about the 1 piece aluminum calipers with integratedf stiffening bridge is the pad changes. I take one bolt out of my CTSV calipers and the pad change takes all of 2 minutes and no TTY bolts involved. Thats great for a multipurpose vehicle.

Lol it's great to see this enthusiasm for RacingBrake's products and for Warren and the RB team. I've been an advocate for years; I was the one who got the first group-buy together to get them to make the 2-piece rotors front and rear for our 5th gen Camaros. I can easily believe they'd make a great caliper. I have their 500 pads front and rear and have nothing but praise for their performance.

Pete... I tried to get you to try their rotors years ago but you were convinced by "the big boys" that you had to have solid rotors. Now you're getting solid (no pun intended) info from somebody who can drive at the levels you do, that these rotors are the real deal.

Count me in for one of the 10 needed for the group-buy on the calipers.

Put together a group-buy thread here on the forum like I did originally to get them to make the 2-piece rotors. Send the link to Warren so he can track the results. I'm quite sure we can get at least the 10 he requires. He knows based on the response they got from the original group buy that the people on Camaro5 are good customers.

Heck - I'll put the list together. Just need the info on what exactly RB would offer; weight; # of pistons; etc.

I would be interested as well but price is going to be they key factor. Possibly a discount for calipers and rotors?

Hey thanks for doing that! I did a lot of research on different rotor availability and RB was perfect for my car. I wish I had been on the initial buy but came to the party late with my 2013. I mentioned Camaro5 as my source for finding his company when he gave me the tour.

Tell you what, I will get with the guys over at Racing Brake and see what I can do. Maybe if we can get a few sets spoken for in advance we can get them to go for it.

I would love a set of those, but one of them probably cost as much as all 4 of my RB rotors.

The CC discs last a long time. You save money in the long run by only replacing pads
