My problem is that if you do a front and rear painted set up from one of the vendors it's approaching $4K. I can do it cheaper with used parts and rebuild them myself. It will be a hassle. If the GM kit is mid $2K I'm going to go that route. I want black calipers and don't necessarily need fancy rotors the factory stuff will be ample.

I would consider doing the Racing Brakes rebuild kits with the SS pistons.

I'm still in the research phase. The stock SS brakes are really very good for the street and I can see them being adequate for the track until you reach a higher level of driving than I am currently capable of.

It is a 60/40 proposition for me right now 60% looks and 40% performance.

the racingbrake rebuild kits for stock ss calipers come with new pistons. simply put i was not expecting a difference in performance or feel. the rebuild gave better heat management as well as a improved "feel" of the peddle. more feedback and control of the peddle was afforded by the rebuild kits.

I would recommend them to anyone...and have the 60% looks and 40% performance screams racingbrake even tho I am using them for 100% performance. They are offerin a complete brake kit using a new rotor, new caliper, fluid, lines, and pads that are getting the final tweaks out as we speak.

they say a picture is worth a thousand words so look at the difference in the pads. the CTS-V brakes have almost twice the surface area as the ss brakes. not to mention that there are staggered sizes in the pistons of the V developed by GM to stop a heavy car. i melted the stock ss setup at VIR in two days.
the top pad is a hawk HP plus SS and the bottom is a hawk DTC 30 CTS-V.

If I could I would have RB's rotors and rebuild kits in the CTS-V/ZL1 Brembo brakes with a 1LE logo on them.

If this business deal I'm working on goes through I will... soon.
