Pretty sure I spoke with you over the phone and you suggested using the lgt rotors. Iirc you used svx because the lgt dust existsat the time. If you made brackets for the lgt rotors they WOULD sell. Pair that with an h6 rear and you have fade free brakes at the track all day
A 6 piston caliper is pretty cheap and just as easy to mount as a 4 piston. Also just because its a 6 piston caliper doesnt mean its capable of scrubbing speed from high speeds constantly. The 135i and a few others have 6 pistons and the pistons melt if they see hard use.

If i am going to go through the process of upgrading my brakes then the real question is why not?

Calipers are about 500 new or about 700 for Porsche 6 pot radials used
Pads 130 new
Z06 350mm Rotors about 200 new for standard construction or another brand for the Porsche fitment
Custom stainless lines 60 @ hydraulic shop
Rotor pattern re-drill 100 for non STI
Steel brackets 6 hours or so worth of work if they arent radial mounts and less if they are radials.
Hub centric rings for the rotors x2 $30

To me this is just better than spending all that money for Sti Brembos or buying some cheap kit that wont hold to any kind of abuse.

Got delayed a bit sorry.

Designer is on it now so we should be making a prototype for fitment within a week or so.

$140/pair for the first buyers - minimum 5.

That gets the second prototype made so we can triple check and adds new good hardware.

Retail after that -$160/pair I think unless volume is much higher than I thought.

I do have access to everything else needed. Rebuilt cardones calipers, and of course pads/rotors etc.

Probably have to stop the pricing in here and take it to the group buy section or vendor announcement.

Nice. Think I might go this way instead of the Subaru 4-pots once I wear out my current stuff. Think they'll fit under a 16" RS wheel?


If they piston sizes are the same as the Subaru caliper the bias should be pretty close to WRX 2-pots.

The rotors are LGT rotors - so 316mm by 30 mm. Much more heat mass.

The effective radius grows by about 7.5 % so front brake torque will increase.

Run it with the H6 Set up in the rear.

Probably needs 17's though.

Pricing is good with me. Couple questions. What year lgt rotors should I be looking for? Would the h6 upgrade be better then the 2pots in the rear? I have a full set of z32 calipers and was planning to run them all around.

If the pistons are the same size as the Subaru 4-pot that works out to almost zero change in bias (1% less). The 4-pot has smaller pistons than the 2-pot.

I was just going on the increase in rotor size from dia 294 to 316 mm.

Any 05-09 LGT front rotor.

The rear Z32 calipers do bolt on but there is current;y not a convenient rotor solution or bracket solution that I know of.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the lgt uses 16 inch wheels no? So assuming you use a 16 with enough spoke clearance like the rs wheels they should fit. When I had this setup I was able to put my oem 04 wheels on but the caliper interfered with the spokes.
