so they have a camaro spindle in their hands and are making test fits. they will have access to a camaro with both the oem 20s and 18s for the track for further fitment clarifications. People who are taking preorders are probably jumping the gun but not by much

They will have a total upgrade kit or package containing rotors and calipers as well as sell them normally. It will be in their website soon.

High gloss black blue and red powdercoat for those that care about colors. Blue is a more expensive color fyi.

I will have a review of their oem caliper rebuild kit (install and track review) as well as some of their track pads after my next track day on June 1st.

It's only a 4 potter? You think it would be worth the price to replace the brembos with these or do the CTS-V set?

Also looking at how I could mod these for track usage. for 2k these are a bargin. Would need to source some 12.91" rotors and machine a bracket but I bet I could find an existing bracket that is already very close.

ohh ya forgot to mention the allen head bolts that keep the pads in. amazing concept instead of the pins.... i am pretty sure with these calipers we can change pads without taking the wheels off...beat that.

i am confused by your questions and picture.

I can say only you can decide whats right for you. They do make ctsv/zl1 sized rotors and caliper rebuild kits i know for sure. Not sure if they make the caliper to be honest.

If you are asking my opinion. I like the weight loss. I wish to see my completed setup brake against a ctsv oem setup.

That would be awesome - do they have an estimated price yet for these?

yes Apex and Chase specifically have been as excited for this product as I am. FYI Chase RB says your a quality no problem vendor. Many of us here know that...might be nice to hear me paraphrasing that from one of your suppliers.
