16lb FULL FLOATING ROTORS

Postby zero06 » Tue Oct 06, 2015 11:29 pm

I have been emailing girodisc about modifying the hats on their STI rotors for the st185 offset and they said they'd make them in a minimum batch of 5. So that means I need 4 more people to make this happen.

These are lightweight 16lb full floating rotors! If you are serious about tracking/driving your car hard like I am this is the best possible option that is currently unavailable.

That's really open, you could use Porsche brembos, and the kit would cost very close to the revolution kit. Or you can source something else. I'm going for a lightweight 6 piston option. I'm also willing to help the other 4 with their brackets as an incentive. I really want to get this made.

What needs to be modified? From my understanding 04 STi front rotors fit our cars as-is.

The sti rotors will rub on the 185 ball joint

These would be the sti rotor with the stock st185 hat offset. A set of brackets would be required for whatever caliper you want which I am offering to fabricate for the 4 others for free.

Price is the same as in the link

I can only know the timeline when I get 4 people interested so I can email girodisc back to get the wheels in motion.

I currently have 1 other person interested need 3 more.
