What about 6 pot upgrade with matching 4 pot rear?

Question

Great thread and feedback... Thank you OP

Ok, I love that RB is offering this great rotor and caliper setup so we have another legit option to compare to the cts-v option. My worry is hearing that the rbs need a racing pad. I can only imagine these things squealing like a pig all the time around town vs. the ctsv setup which is meant for a heavier luxury sedan and is designed to never dare squeal...

What are people's experience with the rbs street manners with correct pads?

And then what are people's experience with the ctvs track ability taking the heat avoiding heat and ultimate fade?

RB's are just fine with a street pad and are quite. They can just handle a race pad a lot better than others and they weigh a lot less. I rode in the OP's car this weekend in 118 degree heat on the track and was amazed at how good his brakes are. As soon as I can afford to do it I am going to do RB's all around.

You don't have to run a track pad unless you're on the track. You can run a performance street pad (I'm running RB's ET500 pads) and they are perfectly quiet with great stopping power.

i am pretty much there weekly....it really is brake disneyland. Mr. Linn and his employees are all quite knowledgeable.

They now know there is a bigger market for camaro and will be trying do things for our cars. This stuff doesnt happen overnight and they wont rush anything... they take brakes and saftey very very seriously. they wont even ship rear rotors without the ebrake part. you can take it off yourself tho.

I was wondering the same thing. I seen they had the RB660 (6 piston) for the vette's BBK. If they fab a bracket for the Camaro I'll buy that in an instant. Stay on'em SPCBA they seem to listen to you!

It is a working relationship. I listen to them, they seems to have figured out that the camaro has some opportunity for dollars to be made.

Glad to hear others singing the praises of these amazing rotors!
I absolutely love mine, and as Doc has in this very forum can attest to the quality. I have yet to find their limitations and believe me I have tried.

Do the RacingBrake rotors have directional, vented vanes?

If the vanes are directional, then are they oriented correctly for the right and left rotors per this website?

http://zeckhausen.com/how_to_properl...all_rotors.htm

I am asking cause my fellow track/autocross friend is looking for road racing rotors and the vanes have to be correct for each side of the car.

You posted in the other brake thread that discussed the different brake choices and advantages of Racing Brakes rotors?

Yes they are directional; they come in a set (front or rear) and there's a left and right side. They must be mounted with the slots curving forward as in this pic:

this is the front passenger side.

It is not the slots that I'm inquiring about, it's the vent vanes (in between the rotor faces) that I'm trying to determine if they are directional left-to-right.

Yes they are which is why you get a left and right rotor for each set. The slots are the clue as to which direction they should be facing when you install the rotors.

Tired of this game, you already knew the answer!
