RacingBrake 6 piston calipers in the works for Camaro!


Rotor and pad


Bigger rotor than the popular oem ctsv/zl1 upgrade

Weight of oem ctsv rotor

Weight of racingbrake rotor that will be used for their 6 pot upgrade...remember this rotor is bigger and yet significantly lighter

The 6 pot for front and 4 pot for rear side by side. Both significant upgrades and will be designed to have proper bias and balance for braking....plus they will look fantastic when combined with their lighter, stronger, better cooling rotors

I just did the CTS-V/ZL1 upgrade so I'm good on brakes but I'm subbing so I can see how it works out...

Looks good so far.

Looks like a nice brake, I like the allen-head screw instead of the punch pin to release the pad clips compered to the Brembos.

Any chance they need a ZL1 to beta test?

Man, I need to get into the aftermarket business. It simply amazes me how much money people spend on cosmetic upgrades…

I think you do track your car, so you will see some benefit, likely the same benefit of the CTS-V upgrade, in that you are less likely to have temperature related braking issues at the track (with proper pad and fluid selection).

99% of the people that get these, are getting them for looks, as they will see no benefit at all. Well, quantitative, measurable performance benefit that is. It's amazing how much the power of suggestion or the placebo affect has on the mind…

At the end of the day, if $5000.00 worth of fancy big brakes puts a smile on your face, that's all that really matters…

Something that can be done to vastly improve the heat issues of the Brembos is to change to the RB Racing pistons as they are not supposed to transfer heat as readily as the stock aluminum pistons. I opted to pass on that upgrade when I did my brake upgrade a few months ago as I had to draw the line on my spending somewhere. It is an easy enough upgrade later on...

I know these RB brakes will be bad ass I just wonder how many will really need them. Then again this is America and we don't necessarily need something to want or buy it.
