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

i will be back at racingbrake and will get his best estimate at all the specs. i will report back and start it a group buy discussion. it definatly helps to have a few venders that i trust to be with me


to stig it most likely would be same amount of pistons unless they can work some magic and get it on our rotor size. atleast for me i cant go bigger rotor as i dont want a bigger wheel and more weight that time.

i promise early next week like monday or tuesday i will be down there

Just swapping to RB is a great upgrade to the SS brakes but if you really wanted to step it up you could swap to the ZL1 6 piston Brembos and run RB ZL1 rotors like in this picture.

I have been extremely happy with them. Next phase in two weeks is to install Pedders suspension components and stainless steel brake lines.

Will the zl1 6 pistons clear the 19" forgelines?

Are these rotors bigger than the stock SS rotors?

Tell Warren "hi" for me. If his son Mike is still working there, say hi too. I worked with Mike many times while they were using my car to develop the rotors a few years ago. If you scroll to the bottom of the page on their website for the rotors, they're still using pics of my car.

All the RB team are absolutely first class. Great to work with and very professional.
