I would love this as i'm piecing together the rear 996 kit and was about to start doing the same for the front.

You guys are really coming up with some amazing group buys for the forum as of late. I'm sure everyone here appreciates it, except for our bank accounts and significant others.

All I will say for now is that the piston area is very close to the piston area on the AP-racing 6 pot kit, and the disc diameter is the same. All other more concrete info will be revealed at launch.

I will add to this and say, the reason why information like this is being withheld until launch is because it has become abundantly clear that my Group-Buy threads are closely watched by other venders, and we wish not to have our offers sniped away from us after doing all the leg work. We try to be as transparent as we can. Details will come in time. I hope you all can appreciate where we are coming from on this.

Leighton, I will be one of the test dummies. Put me down for a kit; I want to make an order as soon as y’all start accepting them.. I will want slotted rotors and caliper paint service. I would like to have the kit installed before mid-January, if timing on your end goes as planned.

If you’re curious, my application will be for street and intermediate-advanced skill track use. I plan to use PFC 08 pads and Castrol SRF. Hopefully I can run these at COTA on Jan 28.

Looks like a great solution. I'm in for the first round.

Will there be any difference for ZCP or non-ZCP cars?

Is my understanding correct that the only difference between a 32mm and a 28mm disc is the heat capacity? Is the effective life the same ie most 32 mm have a minimum thickness of 30mm so I assume these can be run down to 26mm?

Will these have knock back spring's?

Yep understandable. Though honestly piston sizes for most available kits are very easy to find out with minimum research. As long as it's available near launch, the availability of info with your new products is pretty refreshing so it's nice to see it continue this way.

I second this question.

OEM thickness is 28mm correct? I thought the benefits of upgrading to the Brembo GT kit rotor wise; was the fact it is 2 piece rotor making it lighter and the additional thickness making the rotor handle higher levels of heat and cycling heat better over a thinner rotor?

Also is the caliper dimensions the same as the F40 caliper for wheel clearance purposes?



BY the way you ROCK, This group of people on this forum never ceases to amaze me. Keep up the great work.
