Default Four Piston Front caliper / DBA 4000 group buy

Hello all!

Running a group buy on Subaru Four Piston Front Brake calipers, with pins / clips, etc, and Ferodo DS2500 pads. The price will be $599 for 1-5 people; if we get 5-10 people they will be $589.00;

The DS2500's are a top of the line pad that we like very much- wide range of operating temps while still being very streetable (ie dust/noise). The pads alone run ~ $125, so you can see this is a very good deal.

For Rotors:
We're offering DBA 4000's (4650) for $239/pair (!) These are the real McCoy's - you can read about the quality of these rotors here:

http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showt...hlight=dba+4000

We'll run this through the first week of June to see how many we have - NO PROBLEM mixing and matching, if someone just wants the DBAs, or just the Calipers, we'll count them as a participant.

Shipping is not included in the price - you'll pay the actual cost of packing and shipping to your location.

For other deals, visit our site at www.rallyperformance.com

Regards,
Ken

Default More info on DBAs

The DBAs we're offering are the slotted 4000 club-spec design with the kangaroo paw internals... you can read more about them Here

(PDF file, you'll need Adobe). We think these are the best performance rotor value on the market today, period

Super!

You can put me down for the four pots/ferodos- all ready running the DBA 5000's- super rotors. I can vouch for the DS2500's as well- a great daily driven pad, w/ the temp range to accomodate the occasional track day.

Also sign up KurleeDadee for the four pots/ferodos as wella s a set of DBA 4000's.

Thanks

Mike

That's the correct thread outlining their success at the 24 hour Bathurst race w/ one set of rotors!

Calipers are black w/ white lettering- these aren't the 4000 rotors, but good pic of the calipers:

Two options- RS 16X7 rims (or any aftermarket 16X7 rims, actually even many f the rally 15X7 rims as well) OR 5mm spacers w/ the oem 16X6.5" rims- several guys running this combo succesfully. I believe Ken is going to source some 5mm spacers for those that want to run this w/ oem 6.5" wheels.

what might be the effect of running spacers?? wheel bearings, rubbing, etc? I have a wagon, that I'll be lowering. I'm running bigger wheels in the summer, but would like to keep my stockers for the winter. Wish i could afford the brake kit and new winter (or summer) wheels.

Thanks,
wYlie

Essentially you'd be running a 50mm offset wheel (w/ a 5mm spacer) vs the oem 55mm- as you know many run 48mm et (Rota, Volk many others) w/ no ill effects (my Volk TE 37's are 46mm et).

You may even be able to get by w/ a 3mm spacer- be worth searching, that would be like running a 52mm offset.

Default Spacers

We'll be getting a price on the Eibach 5mm spacers. We're very comfortable with the small spacers, actually - the offset change is minimal, in fact many rally cars run with them.

Ken

Oh well I'll still have some sweet brakes!

Default Yep!

They sure do! This is a heck of a deal, I haven't exactly told everyone that I'm doing it yet...

I can hear it now: How are we supposed to make any money???!

Yes. You'd want to upgrade to the WRX size rotors (294X24) while doing this- you need only to source the approiate brackets- either through the dealer, junk yard or the classified section here.

You can calculate shipping costs from zipcode 16915. Weight of the calipers are ~ 25 lbs, if you want the 4000 rotors weight ~ 30 lbs.

There's no brackets to be used in the swap because the 4pot caliper has the bracket built into it. All you need is the wrx sized rotors.

Ken M- that's great to know- so we will ditch the bracket we currently have in the WRX as well?

It's starting to roll boys.
