He's not the only perfectionist

i'm pretty pleased with the brackets.

I got the rotors today and they look gorgeous. Here are some pics. The rusty ones are stock 04 STi rear rotors.

I do not have the Kartboy brackets, but I assume they are just like the Brembo one, which are quite similar to the KartBoy Subaru 2-pot adapters.

It actually is 20 mm full width. If you look close the edges angle down. I think it's just a bad measurement job on my part. I will take another pic.

Well, there have actually always been a few different kits available, but they were always very expensive, and it involved pressing a spacer into the rotor where the e-brake pads were to reduce the internal diameter. These rotors are all one piece, so in case you actually have to use the e-brake in am emergency, you don't have to worry about the spacer spinning.

Don't you still need a bracket to fit the Sti Brembo Caliper on your FXT with these Rotors?

Thanks

Yes, but I needed to get these mounted asap so I am using the Brembo brackets. What I meant is that I didn't have the KartBoy brackets in hand, so thats why there are no pictures.

Forester's and WRX's use the same hub. So we will both need these rotors and brackets to mount the STi take offs.
