Racing Brake 2 pc Rotors Installed

I installed my Racing Brake 2 piece rotors with open slots, Stainless steel braided brake lines and Hawk HPS brake pads today. The rotors save about 6 lbs of weight each. I already had Motul RBF600 brake fluid in the car. To replace the lines it only took about 6 ounces of fluid to bleed the new lines.
To break in the new pads, it took about ten 35 mph moderate pressure stops and another ten 55 mph hard stops to get the temps up. It was only about 25degrees outside at the time.
The brakes have a very firm feel now compared to stock.


Stock Rotor. The new thickness is 32mm. Minimum thickness is 30mm.

I can see this becoming a popular mod considering these cars' weight issues. 24 pounds is even more impressive considering that it's all rotating mass. Who did you get those rotors from?

That's a good looking setup; those rotors look so much better than the stock ones. Besides the firmer feel, do they seem to grip better?

Yes they grip great. The Hawk HPS High performance Street pads are softer than stock and really grip, and no dust!!

I am putting mine on this week, can't wait! Will post pics.

What is the useful life on the Motul RBF600? Any idea of mile interval before you need to change it?

At least as good as your oem fluid. I haven't seen a cut and dried change interval. Maybe call Motul and see what they recommend.

Better be quick, not sure how long racing Brake is holding the Camaro5 discount!

They are working on the rear step currently.

DAYAM, $1800 for rotors is a bit on the pricey side for a daily driver. If this were a road race car I could see it but not on a DD street car. SS lines, better pads, and better fluid will be more than enough for 95% of the cars out there. They do look nice and i'm sure they work well.

RBF600, or any other high quality fluid can follow the manufacturer's recommended interval under normal use. We recommend a full flush at least every other year for street only driving.

With track use you should be shortening the intervals depending on the frequency of your track visits and how hard you're pushing the car. Frequent and hard track use should be flushing after every event.

Got mine installed yesterday; they look great. I got their ET500 pads for the fronts and stainless brake lines for all 4 corners. Put some Super Blue brake fluid in. Overall braking now feels much more precise and controlled; it doesn't have that sudden dramatic grab effect the stock brakes had. The brakes now feel smooth and the grip feels more consistent with pedal travel.

I could sure feel the difference in weight picking up the pair of RB rotors at the same time, and then picking up both stock rotors. You can feel that 12 lb difference.
I'll put some pics up soon as I get them out of my iphone.
