SOLD: 02+ WRX RacingBrake Front Brake kit Slotted, Axxis Ultimate Pads, Motul RBF600
For sale is a front 4-pot brake upgrade kit from RacingBrake. It is the slotted rotor brake kit with OEM sized rotor. I opted to go OEM size for cheaper replacement rotors down the line. I removed this from my 2011 WRX as I am nearing the end of the long process of returning to stock to purchase a more family oriented car w/ sliding back doors.
Anyhow, the brakes have seen very little use since I installed them last year. As you can tell by the pictures, there is a whole lot of pad life left. However, I am also including some brand new Axxis Ultimates I've had for sometime that will also work with these calipers.
The finish on the driver's side (left) caliper has peeled a little toward the bottom due to some brake fluid. When I installed it, I didn't double check the torque on the external cross over lines, and there was a slow leak I didn't know about until my brake light turned on a couple months later. After torquing it down, everything has been solid. This is purely cosmetic, doesn't decrease performance, and cannot be easily seen once installed.
If you're looking into these, you probably already know the pros/cons these calipers hold in respect to STi Brembos and Subaru (FHI) 4-pots. However, here's a short list:
Lighter than both Brembos/Subaru 4 pot/OEM sliders
Incredible pad selection (uses 06-07 Subaru 4 pot pads/Nissan 300zx pads)
Much easier to replace pads than on OEM sliders
You can use OEM rotors and wheels
Mounting bolts don't thread into the caliper (no galvanized corrosion, no chance of stripping threads in the caliper)
Bracket can be replaced if you want to use a larger rotor
More information found here:

* Firearms related trades will need to be done FTF at a local FFL. I prefer OC Indoor shooting range, Ammobros, and/or Riflegear in that order.
FIRM means if you show up with less than the agreed amount, you'll be directed to the nearest ATM.
I am willing to ship, but local inquiries will take priority. Buyer pays shipping.
Cash is king, but PayPal confirmed may suffice depending on the situation (Buyer pays fees).
Best way to get a hold of me is through a PM.
