Would switching to ctsv rears make any difference? From what I read of the op was the rears are equivelant to the as rears?

Sweet! Thanks for the order! When are you installing them?

Yep no real benefit. Your stock rear Brembo brakes are a great match for the CTS-V front calipers.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

The function of the SS and CTS-V rears are the same.

side by side they look identical . The only thing different to me look to be the pistons. The SS ones were solid and an small hole in the middle, as the V ones were hollow and seemed lighter.

Thanks JDP, these were painted rather than powdercoated, I always thought the paint makes them look wet vs powder coat.

A number of 6 cylinder owners have swapped master cyclinders along with the CTS-V calipers. There are details about the swaps on the forum.

If you use the CTS-V brakes they will discolor no matter how you finish them.

Okay, I thought that looked a little too good for the G2 system. Let us know how they hold up

I used the G2 custom paint in IOM. I first brushed the paint on. HUGE mistake, as it come out terrible. Had to media blast, and chemically remove the epoxy. Waste of $100. When I reprinted I sprayed the paint on and came out way better.

Sounds like caliper bolts are loose.

I won't be able to pull the wheels off until tomorrow, but looking through the wheels everything looks and feels fine. That is, I see no signs of rubbing or scraping and everything appear to be tight & secure.

Could this just be the 2-piece rotors?

Clicking related directly to wheel speed?

BUMP.....just ordered my CTS-V kit sans stainless lines. Last piece of the puzzle before busting my cherry on Eagles Canyon Raceway.

Went with the factory color as the natural heat coloring has me intrigued.

Hawk HP Plus pads for the street and Pedders special (Carbotech) pads for the track is the plan.

Motul 600 for now then will go with Castrol SRF. Gonna bleed the old fashioned way and forgo the ABS Tech II.

Elected to stay with the tried and true CTS-V rotors

Really worried about brake fade at 160 + mph on the back 2000' straight going into the 90 deg turn 7! Hopefully wont be an issue for the 20 minute track session. I know the oil temps will be an issue after about 3 laps in the 100+ deg Texas heat, even with the big 16 row Earls oil cooler. Thats what the right foot is for.....right, no need to go 14 psi boost on every straight!

Time to re-read this entire thread!

Last week spend a few hours in the canyons really pushing the car. If heated up and had big time brake fade there before. None this time around, felt strong and consistent. Well worth it for the cost.

So Pete, are these CF pads you mention here the Pedders special you mention?
