    $1532 Front and Rear, I'm signed up.
    I already have the calipers.
    Has anyone worked out where to buy the lines?

    That is what I'm wondering as well. My rear UUC lines are not in good shape, so I will end up needing all new SS lines too. It would be nice if RB could get those to us for a really good deal, or even throw them in as a package if we bought all four rotors and pads for the front.

    "Racing Brake" also sells the stainless lines. I have the front and rear set when I recieved the rear 2piece rotors from them. But I am not sure if the front lines will work with the new calipers. Reason the 09 lines have a straight ends and ours have a angle end. the length of the line looks good.If it does not work "FLYNBE Perfomance" Can make us lines with no problem.

    Thanks zzilla. Sorry for the late post as I have a house full of out of state relatives who want to party.

    I will have 5 sets of Coleman Racing Rotors available soon. These will be 2pc slotted rotors engineered and manufactured for use of the V2 OEM Brembo 6 piston calipers. The 12mm V1 steering knuckle caliper mounting bolt holes need to drilled out to 14mm to accept the V2 caliper mounting bolts. Once drilled this is a bolt-on upgrade. The rotors will have slots that extend thru to the outside edge of the replaceable Coleman Racing rotor rings. The purpose of the slots is to allow the gasses to vent.

    The fixed mount 2pc front rotors are $415.00 ea
    The floating mount 2pc front rotors are $480.00 ea
    Pricing is for V1 OEM bolt hole pattern (6 lug)

    If interested in purchasing, please pm your email or phone number.

    I have Two sets of the Coleman Racing 2pc rear rotors available and will sweeten the deal for the first two complete (front and rear rotor) sets sold.

    Please ask questions here, pm to purchase.

    Will post pictures of rear 2pc rotors with parking brake feature.

    Interested in the floating fronts.
    Might also want the matching rears.
    You mentioned a deal?

    How available are the front and rear rings, when we need replacements?

    Are they standard coleman rings?
    or
    Will they require a min qty run to order new rings?

    Re: V2 rotor/caliper retrofit for V1 cars

    The min qty is to bring the product to market. The first five rear rotors are all fixed 2pc, slotted with parking brake feature. Some were ordered with 5 x 4.75 bolt hole pattern for fittment of corvette hubs and wheels to the V1.

    The Coleman Racing rotor rings are one of their many standard products and are readily available and can be purchased in any quantity you wish.

    I personally purchased the 5 rear rotors to get this thing rolling. Relatives are back, more later.

    Nice to know the rings are standard parts.

    What is the material used for;
    Rear Parking Brake Drum?
    Rear Hat?

    Re: V2 rotor/caliper retrofit for V1 cars

    pm returned. Yes they are bolt-on. The conversion requires shorter caliper mounting bolts because OEM V2 14mm caliper mounting bolts are too long.
    I have the aftermarket V1 brake lines from Luke at Lindsey Caddilac and they bolt right up to the V2 calipers. I will find/post the part number used to purchace the V2 calipers.

    Here are some pictures from the mock-up showing the OEM V2 rotors & calipers on my V1 with V1 and C6 Z06 front wheels.

    Re: V2 rotor/caliper retrofit for V1 cars

    Can you give a specific Coleman part number for the replacement rings so we can figure out what we're looking at for future costs? Coleman's website is a bit non-user-friendly when it comes to this sort of thing.

    This page for Item #17598 says "Brake Rotor, 1-1/4 / 1-3/8, 16", Custom, Solid Mount, DV32" at the top. The diagram shows the diameter can be 15" to 16" and the thickness 1-1/4 to 1-1/2, and then the written description below the diagram says "These heavy duty vented disc brake rotors are available in thicknesses of 1-1/4" to 1.400" and diameters of 13" to 14"." And to cap it all off, the pull-down menu to select a size only lists 16" options. That shows $263 per ring, but that's for the 16", so who knows.

    Also, just out of curiosity, what are the actual measurements of the OEM V2 front rotors? Everything I've read since the car was introduced says it's a 15" front rotor, but the Brembo 2-piece rotors (available through GM) are 370mm x 34mm. 370mm is only ~14.6".
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...
