I think the CTS-V Mono-Block Brembo is a superior caliper to the RB 2-piece caliper and it is cheaper.

Kind regards,

The 2-piece calipers can have a fair amount of deflection in them and the "bridge" on the RB calipers is a bolt. We run the Stop Tech 2-piece calipers as well as the 2-piece Wilwood calipers which have actual bridges in most cases. The mono-block design is simply better however in my opinion. I also don't have a lot of confidence in RB products from personal experience.

Kind regards,

Really? Can I ask what happened that you don't like Racing Brake? I ran their rotors and absolutely loved them.

Was it their rotors you had an issue with, or the rake pads, or what?

I was using their rotors in early development of our CTS-V package and I completely split one after 4 track days on street tires with a DTC-30 pad compound which isn't super aggressive; I'd hate to see what happens on an R-Compound set up. They were also very difficult to work with so we stopped using and offering their products.

Kind regards,

Did you contact Racing Brake when it happened and asked them why they thought the rotor cracked?

Not picking any sides... but I remember a few years back when Baer came out with their Mono Block Calipers it was a big deal for the same reasons Jordan pointed out.

I did and I didn't get very far. I was actually pretty put off the way they treated me especially considering we run one of the fastest roadcourse/autocross 5th Gens in the country.. I actually just threw them away a few weeks ago but I kept the center hats... That was an expensive experiment.

Kind regards,

A small update on my warped rotor story from earlier in this thread.

For those who don't want to look it all up, I had slotted RB fronts that warped when using Hawk DTC-30s on the track. Machined the rotors and switched to Cobalt Friction pads. After one day on the track, the rotors were warped again (though only slightly this time).

Bought new rings from RB, sent old ones back and asked them to look at them. They credited me for 90% of the cost of the rings - company stands behind their product. I think there was something wrong with the rotors I had, because I have driven those tracks before on OEM rotors and pads, no problem, no warping.

Interestingly, RB now no longer sells the specific rotors I had bought. What they sell now are 32 mm wide, 20.5 lbs each. What I bought last fall was thinner (I forget exactly what - 30mm?) and lighter. RB told me it was a change that had nothing to do with product performance. But, given my odd situation with the last rotors, I am actually happy that these ones are now the same width as OEM rotors, even if they are heavier than what they used to be.

I ended up adding brake ducts to help manage the heat situation up front, so I am no longer worried about overheating. But still.
