Keep in mind people, you don't just want clearance, you want a fair amount of clearance. If the gap is less than about 5mm, you'll get little rocks and debris getting stuck in there, ruining the finish of the calipers.

Also, with little or no gap, the calipers are more hidden/blocked, aesthetically. Moving the wheel out a bit more looks better.

What are people running in these calipers for track pads? I was hoping to find something at FCP (for the replacement policy) like a Hawk HT10, but they don’t have much for these brakes it seems.

I'm using DTC-60s all around and so far feels pretty good. Nice initial bite and don't feel a lot of fade. FCP has these too for our sizes!

Hi all
Well finally got my calipers. EBAY set with 65k miles $450. Not perfect but with a rebuild and paint they should be good.
Questions for you all.
Who is running the shim/dampeners and why either way?
I am going to be doing a complete rebuild to include pistons. Anyone know the best place source these complete kits?
Also looking for the piston springs to help with the push back. Not sure if these are needed but if they are cheap I will use them.
Car will see the track several times a year so going to get it all done at once.
Haven’t decided on the front size yet. What’s the verdict on the CM adapters? Is there still a fitment issue on these or just the machine work and lop off a bit of the bracket and off you go?
Thanks

Nice man! Iím in the process of rebuilding mine at the moment. I did a complete rebuild as well and purchased the shims. Iíve hear it just helps reduce the pad from rattling in the caliper. Not required but will help reduce weird noises. If itís a dedicated track car you might not care about that.

If you sourced your brackets from Rally Road then you should be good. When I spoke with them the told me they redesigned their bracket to have full coverage of the OE ZCP rotors.

Where did you buy your rebuild kits and did they include pistons?
Haven't decided on brackets yet, might stick with the smaller fronts to use the lighter Euro rotors or non drilled so might need to go with the CMs from ECS. Also a less expensive in the long run.
On the shims then using the piston springs might do the same. I think Tbone or someone said they also can cause issues when making pad changes. Would have back track and read his statement again.

I didn't really purchase a "kit" per say. I found all of the part numbers and I sourced them all individually. I didn't feel the need to replace the pistons, just all the rubber and other hardware. I felt more comfortable purchasing OE Brembo seals versus Stoptech. It was really just personal preference, as many members have used the high temp Stoptech seals without issue. Below is where I sourced my parts and part numbers. Hope this helps!

- OE Brembo seals, bleeder screws, bleeder screw caps --> Hoerr Racing
- OE Porsche hydraulic connecting lines, brake kit hardware kit --> Pelican Parts
- Brake pad shims and textar pads --> FCP Euro
