Camaro Brembo Big Brake Kit, Installed!!

Hey everyone! I had mentioned a while back that I was the prototype car for a brake kit, but couldn't say which one as it wasn't ready for the market yet. Well it was Brembo! They have completed the kit, and I just got it yesterday, it's being installed as we speak The specs on the kit are as follows:

Front:
6 Piston Monoblock Caliper
380mm (15 inches) Drilled (or slotted) 2-piece Rotors
$4250

Rear:
4 Piston Monoblock Caliper
380mm (15 inches) Drilled (or slotted) 2-piece Rotors
$3395

I had them custom painted to ZR-1 Jetstream Blue with a white Brembo Logo. I forgot to take pics of the kit before they were installed I know you guys are gonna flame me, but I promise to get pics as soon as I go pick up the car. I will post them tonight!!

I got this kit from Jim over at CarNutz Customz in Seattle. Great guys over there, and Jim is always awesome to work with. CarNutz can do everything you may need from carbon fiber wrapping, to full custom body kits. All depends on how crazy you want to go! Check them out at www.carnutzcustomz.com or call (425) 641-7000, make sure to ask for Jim.


















Just in case you don't see this on the second page of this thread, I am adding the pricing info for the Brembo upgrade kit. Keep in mind this differs from the GT kit above.

The new Camaro "caliper only" upgrades are ready! You can order them with red or yellow or silver or black calipers at no extra charge. The upgrades fit the Camaro SS.

These are 6-piston Monoblock front calipers and 4-piston Monoblock rear calipers to be used with the stock brake discs. The calipers come with the Ferodo FM1000 high performance brake pads and we also include Goodridge stainless steel brake lines and caliper mounting hardware.

These upgrades are a great low cost alternative to the full Brembo GT systems using the same Monoblock calipers and pads.

Retail for the front system is only $1995.
Retail for the rear system is only $1795.

Are you planning on tracking the car heavily? If you do, I want fade reports and temps if you have the ability to get them.

Yes, I upgraded my 4 piston 2 piece Brembo's with a 14 inch one piece rotor to a 6 piston monoblock floating system with a 2 piece drilled rotor and stainless steel lines. This system is not made to stop the car better, though it very well might do that. Rather it is designed to eliminate brake fade in all driving situations, including road racing, and to give the brakes a much better feel all while allowing the driver to better control them in all driving conditions.

To everyone, I will have pics tonight, sorry, gotta wash the cars first I will post up pricing after I get out of my morning meetings. Thanks!

because if you do live in southern california, its a bitch to find a car. a vast majority of dealers had their allocations fill up long ago.
