We don't have any 2 piece rotors for the Prodrive kit due to the fact that 6 figure costs are involved in creating the tooling for a new AeroRotor, however you may have better luck with Alcon. I'm not sure what they offer in terms of two piece rotors (they don't have much of a presence here in the states, they're UK based), but my guess is that you may find something that fits. The only reasons they used a one piece rotor is to save cost and to eliminate any longevity or customer service problems with a floating design. IIRC, they use a 330x30mm rotor on that kit which I think AP makes in a 2 piece design, and Alcon likely does too (it's much easier to create the tooling for a one piece, custom-vaned rotor when you already have the tooling for the friction ring of the two piece rotor). The only difficult part may be finding a hat with the right bolt pattern and offset or height.
Although we don't have any Ferodo pads in stock for the B-Type caliper (It's not used in racing any more, the Prodrive kit is probably among the three most popoular Alcon aftermarket BBKs in the US, and Prodrive USA hasn't sold a single kit since our kit came out and TireRack stopped selling Prodrive). With that having been said, before I send you anything, I would at least like to have you send me a tracing and/or pictures (with measurements in mm) of the used pads that you currently have to make sure we send you the right thing. Unfortunately, nobody at Prodrive knows what pad their BBK takes... hold on
... okay I'm better.
Furthermore, Ferrodo has five different part numbers for the Alcon B Type caliper due to five different available thicknesses: 14mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm, and 25mm. It would be best to find out what thickness pad your calipers take so that you aren't throwing money away and you end up with a pad that will fit in your caliper without having to be milled down. See how easy this is?
One place I would check first is http://bbs.scoobynet.co.uk/
as the Prodrive kit is much more prevalent in the UK than it is here in the US. FYI, once we know what shape and thickness your pads are, we can get you pads from PFC, Pagid, Ferodo, Hawk, and Mintex.
