So you'd just be looking to offer a kit with rotors and adapters? Sounds like a very tuner-friendly approach. Especially if the price could come down to earth a bit more (say $200 or less for adapters, $2-300 for rotors), then it would sell like hot-cakes.
EDIT: What do DBA oem-replacement STi rotors cost for the rear? might that be close to the final rotor cost perhaps?

The rotor design specs are easy enuf to come by (just a stock sti rotor dimensions, but with a smaller inner hat diam.), but the adapters would be quite a task i think too. I thought about doing it for the oem 2-pot caliper adapter backwhen i had mine before Kartboy started making them.
Just never had the guts to manufacteur a brake-related part.
Sorta easy - rotor tooling is mega bucks, takes forever and you have to buy a big pile...the relative size of the pile is going to keep the price up at close to $350-400 per pair - but thatt's still less than whats out there by $200+.

Brackets at $200 should be doable - the bracket is nearly identical to the 2 pot adaptor - in fact if I apply some logic about Subaru backing plates and calipers it seems the bracket should be the same. (2pots bolt on R180 for use w/ gravel rotors....STi Brembo's bolt on R180's....2 pots bolt on R160 w/ adaptor....?????????)

gotta go -
