ZR1 brakes?

What are the chances that the ZR1's CCM brakes will be able to be swapped onto the Camaro? Does anyone know?

And that would be a LOT of money, indeed. Thousands per corner I'm told.

I echo the above and wonder why? Yes they could stop the earth's rotation, however are you racing or something?

to buy the disks and calipers is around 8k from a dealer if you can find a vin for a zr1 to order them.


the problem is you probably dont want to do it. I was one of the first people to start posting about doing that swap, but in all my research you wouldnt want too. With the extra wieght brembo/race dynamics say the car will have major problems with brake modulation. give it a little and it will slow down a little, then give it a little more and it will stop the car completely. the zr1 uses a computer actuated controller for the brake cylinder, and you can't just swap one into the camaro as it wont give enough pressure to make up for the added weight. so you'd have to stomp th brake all the time. so overall your much better off looking at larger bicast disks and calipers from a cts-v

14 inch brakes not big enough??? I'll wait and see if I can make the stock stuff fade, if so, might just need a pad change.

Stock Diameter should be plenty big enough. 14.4" discs with 4 piston calipers should be big enough your limiting factor will be traction between the tires and road, not ability of the brakes to slow the car. My main concern is weight. Anyone ever picked up a set of 14+" iron discs? I was reading about Aston Martin's latest DBS which uses 15" CCM brakes. They saved 25lbs PER WHEEL over the iron discs. A 100 pound reduction of rotating, unsprung weight does wonders for both handling, braking, and accelleration.

There's no way I could spend 8000 on brakes, so I had planned on shopping around for wrecked ZR-1's being parted out. Guess I'll stick to two piece discs with aluminum hats.

From my experience working for an insurance company previously, high end cars that are totaled and parted are usually parted for big bucks. Meaning you probably wouldn't save much on those brakes as shops looking to fix non-totaled cars faster jump all over model specific parts like that. There are much cheaper ways to achieve the same result you're looking for..

Ive seen completely obliterated rolled Lamborghini Murcielagos go for over $100,000.

Thanks Rogue, I was unaware of that. I'll probably just get some of Brembo's cross drilled/slotted rotors with aluminum hats like on the GS Camaro. And hopefully talk Riley Technologies into selling me their carbon fiber hood/fenders/trunk lid!

Slotted & Drilled Rotors

Guys, Anyone know where we can get slotted and drilled rotors for the 2010 Camaro? I called Brembo and they pushed me off to another company that said they wouldn't have anything for at least 1 year. Looking for a good quality rotor with a good finish that will jump out thur the 20" wheels at you without breaking the bank.

you reallize that slotted and drilled rotors are not purely for show and will not last as long because they will crack correct?

if you do, i would check wilwood, Baer, AP racing, Endless Brakes, or Alcon.

Brembo as i recall has the disks listed they just may not have a brake upgrade.

and it's worth mentioning that drilled/slotted rotors eat the brake pads down much faster than regular rotors

they CAN crack. not every one will. especially cast-in-place drilled ones

What about the Carbon Ceramic brake rotor options?

I am more interested in the composition (carbon) of the rotors than the size...

I know for the 4th Gen's people used to buy the Porsche 996 Calipers, a new caliper bracket and buy some carbon discs from a supplier I cant remember.

As the carbon discs get hotter, they work better and on top of that they will last ten of thousands of miles!

Thats funny, my GMPP Cobalt drilled and Slotted lasted twice as long as the stock ones with the same oem pads... Not all rotors are made equal...

Check with AP Racing for different size CCM brakes, you can run Steel disks with there set up untill you decide to buy the ccm rotors and then just swap the pads and bam.....CCMs on camaro

maybe that price per corner. when discussing the specs on the zr1, i remember seeing somewhere that the only other car that offered carbon ceramics that big from the factory had them as a $20000 option
