Default Cobb Stage 2 Brake Upgrade - Cheaper Option?

So it's time for new brake pads and some extras. I have a 99 RS. I would like the increased surface area of the wrx rotor, yet i don't plan on track days so there is no need for the $450 cryo'd rotor element of the Cobb stage 2 upgrade. Does anyone know the part number of wrx rotors and those relocation brackets so i can save some bucks? P.S. anyone running their pads? opinions? thanks...

Why not just pick-up a set of used WRX calipers and pads, and rotors from a WRX owner that has upgraded theirs...?

If you can find someone with a couple thousand miles on them....go for that.

If you do that.....I would suggest changing pads to something a little better then the OEM pads.

I bought 11.4 Rotors from subaruparts.com in Tacoma WA for $110 shipped. Had them cryo'ed from 300Below.com in IL for $65 shipped to NY.

Total Cryo-ed rotor cost $175 shipped.

The trick is to call Bob at 300 below and tell him to expect your rotors from the parts vendor. This way you can ship the rotor directly from the parts vendor to the cryo center to you. Saves one shipping trip.

The rotors weigh around 30 pounds.

Guys, Basshead need the custom 2.5RS >11.4"rotor brackets.

It seems once the word got out the brackets that used to be available have gone underground, and are only available with package deals.

basshead - look into the subaru 4-pot upgrade. slightly larger rotors than the WRX, and stop like crazy. run about 700-800 bux new from a number of vendors - check the products section of the main site.

i have speedline superturismo's at 55mm offset..can't do subaru 4pots...i can get plenty of clamping force from upgrades to the stock system..i just wanted a little more wheel filler and more surface area to disipate the heat generated by my fun days on backroads. Plus i want to keep costs relatively low, have to buy new toyo t1-s's now also...Thanks for the input though guys!

Basshead, I'm trying to source the brackets alone. I'll let you know what I find. Please do the same if you find something.
