got these on ebay for $814 shipped. they came in about 10 days. you get to pick your caliper, rotor and pad. they are 330mm dia rotors, 2 pot caliper. needs 17" wheels. i have to get a 3mm spacer up front. the rotors use a hubcentric ring and are redrilled to 5x100. the adapters are steel and seem strong. after i get some spacers in ill let you know how they stop.

Shiney! Might as well get the 15mm spacer, make your front wheels look just right.

new developments

We have been supplying these rotors for the last 10+ years and will continue to do so. We offer them ready to install cross drilled as you received for $100 each. The rotors are derived from a popular production car (Toyota Supra twin turbo) but need to be slightly machined for your application. In the unlikely event we do go ‘belly-up” you can get the rotors from a parts store and have them massaged to fit.

dia: 323mm
height: 49mm
nom thick: 30mm
min thick: 29mm

so i guess we can have an affordable brake upgrade now besides trying to fit the st205 brakes.

So the caliper mounts right to your stock bracket?

I doubt it, there is usually an adapter that bolts the caliper to the hub.

Actually the stock setup is kind that way, but the adapter on the stock caliper is also the mount for the pads.

Nice upgrade. Do you circuit race?

i autox it some run i do plan on tracking it a few times.

there is an adapter, see first pic. it also has a spacer shim to get the offset right and center the caliper.

this kit could be remade but i doubt it would be any cheaper than they sell them

I know this is kind of a dumb question; this is just the fronts right, not all 4 for $814? Any link?

That's what I figured, otherwise that's a hell of a deal.

Got another question while I'm at it; I'm a noob when it comes to this stuff, but will the same set work on front and back or would you need a different set-up on the rear? I'm just looking at options for when I decide to upgrade.

Hopefully the superlites are better than the dynalites. I was really unimpressed with the dynalites, you could actually see the caliper flex when you were hard on the brakes.

Do the rears let you keep the parking brake intact?

i havent seen a kit for the rear beside johns that retains the ebrake. ill prollt just go with the st205 brakes on the rear

well i got the spacers in today and the wheels fit now. i still want lighter wheels without spacers. im about to go test it out and see how it is.

OMG these are awesome. Worth every penny, peddle feels like stock and very linear. doesnt slam on the brakes unless you want it to. didnt notice the extra weight either. be sure your wheels fit. im running 3mm spacers in the front.

hmmmm, awesome stuff!

so those are genuine SuperLites? how are they able to offer it at more than 1/2 price of what Rocketeer offers them? where are they cutting corners? or is Rocketeer's markup that great?

in any case, it's good to know that there is actually a decently affordable front bbk solution of us... i am trying hard *not* to go bbk, but at this price, it's quite tempting, lol.

the kit isnt that expensive to make. they offer the rotors at 100 a piece, calipers are 180 from wilwood a piece, pads are 84 and they rest of the bolts, fittings, adapter plate, and line cant be over 100. that totals 744 if you pay retail price on everything. im sure they get everything marked way down so im guessing they build this kit for a cost of about 500. the calipers and pads are drop shipped in a separate package when you order them.

Simple answer, one piece off the shelf rotors. I had asked these guys what they wanted a while ago for a supra 2-piece rotor and their priced tacked on over $500 to get a two piece option.

You can buy your own high end 2-piece rotors from supra for about $500, so you could save money sourcing your own parts. The only advantage they have is they already make a caliper bracket. I was considering getting their kit and running it as is until it was time for new rotors and would just get 2-piece. I will be running the st205 setup though. I decided to stay with it since it offers a larger pad sweep area then most aftermarket caliper setups.

the pad doesnt catch near all of the rotor, prolly 2/3 of it. i dont really think i will need more than that though. john said he never has and he drives pretty hard

Yeah, I think the wilwoods will be great for most people. If I had the money I would have either gotten these and 2-piece or the rocketeer kit. My interest in the rocketeer kit was mostly because of the total weight they managed to shave off each side. If my 205s had sold, I would have already bought these just so I did not have to come up with a rotor solution on my own.

i will look into a 2 piece rotor when these wear out. the center is bored out and the 5 x 100 is machined onto them as well. if i can get a tophat made ill be able to get a 2 peice rotor
