    Thumbs up V2 rotor/caliper retrofit for V1 cars

    I have spoken to "Racing Brake" They are the Company that makes 2piece high performance rotors for our cars.

    They are willing to make the 15in V2 rotor with our six lug pattern so that we can use the 6 piston V2 caliper on our cars.

    This means that the entire V2 set up for the front brakes will be a bolt on. The only thing we will have to do is drill out the spindle to accomodate the new caliper bolts.

    Best part is that this system will fit our OEM wheels(this information is based on the measurments and mock ups from the V2 to V1 thread)

    The only way for "Racing Brake" to make these is to have a sign up list.
    So if this system is for you SIGN UP HERE and we can get the ball rolling.
    Thanks.

    With Hawk DTC-30 "street" pads, these brakes are eyeball popping on the 4250lb V2. They should be mind blowing on the 3850 V1...

    Depends on price if I'm in or not. But, this would be a super sweet mod for track/HPDE guys.

    I'd love to have them. Sucks it would cost me two points for Time Trial though...

    Re: V2 rotor/caliper retrofit for V1 cars

    If I've already got RB rotors (14" V1 style), would I be able to buy just the rotor rings? Or is the center hat a different design that wouldn't be compatible?

    Would it be "rude" to inquire as to cost, before committing??

    I think I still have a couple of points to play with before moving into TTA. BTW, I am trying to see if I can get down to PMP on May 14-15, and HPR on August 20-21.

    Not to go too far off track but it looks like I'll still be in TTB with points to spare this season as well (**+6, R6+10, 275 tire+4, headers/cats/exhaust+5).

    I do want the V2 calipers eventually but can't commit to buying at this time due to the cost... :/

    Not sure on cost yet But I would imagine they would be close to the price of the other v1 rotors.

    "Racing Brake " has confirmed that there will be a group buy discount for those who sign up. Other group buys have yielded aprox $200.00 discount off the item.

    Re: V2 rotor/caliper retrofit for V1 cars

    My question is would they have to be a 2-piece, or could we have a cheap 1-piece option? I think the increased braking peformance of the larger rotor and the 6-pot front calipers would more than make up for the performance/weight hit of using a rotor than is not a 2-piece.

    They will only make this in a 2-piece.
    As far weight, any time you can reduce rotating mass you are going to pick up time/speed( millisec etc..) ( also depending on the drivers skills)and in racing or time trials that is all that matters. And with the "RB" rotors front and rear will take 21lbs off the car/rotating mass.

    I understand all that, but these RB rotors are pretty pricey, and it would be awesome if we could have an option of just using the 1-piece. I know that if it was $100-$300 less per rotor, I would be more than willing to take the (millisecond) performance hit. Do the stock 2nd Gen Vs come with 2-piece rotors...if the answer is no, then we should be able to get those same rotors, just drilled to match our lug pattern. I guess you have to pay to play, but I am just really not that keen on paying $400+ for a wearable item (that will wear even faster with track use).
