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.

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.
i read the thread and it didnt say anywhere as to where you got them. but thanks for posting the site where to buy them.

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.

It was a pleasure meeting you Mark, and working on your car. I am glad the Racing Brake kit is working out for you (as if there were any doubts). We have had some good experience with selling and installing Racing Brake's kits for the Corvette Z06, and they are fantastic!! I would expect no less, from the Camaro kit, and they have NOT let us down!.

BTW: Christopher and I will be setting up that photo shoot for your car here very soon, and those who have not seen your car in it's full glory will be able to truly appreciate it, as we do!!

I look forward to installing more of Racing Brake's kits!! CAMARO'S ROCK!!

Thank you Brian! You guys did an outstanding job. Here are the pics as promised. The first shows what you see when you open the box from Racing Brake; they are beautiful. Next is the stock rotor on the hub, then the RB rotor on the hub. Next is a shot of the stock rotor behind my rim and then RB's rotor behind my rim. As you can see the RB rotors have a very high-tech look to them.

If any customers in the Orange County or SoCal area get these rotors, I highly recommend Brian and the guys at GT Pro; they did a great job of installing everything including the stainless steel braided brake lines.

And as for the Racing Brake rotors; they are absolutely beautiful and work as advertised. I couldn't be happier with them!
