Ya the color will look good behind a nice set of open wheels. Specially with the Brembos.




Here is what I am installing later. This set weighs less then only 33.5lbs for both the calipers and rotors....LOL

Can't remember the site search 2010 brembo thread will pop up. Cost was 200 dollars and it didn't come plastered with a brand name on them so I am not positive

those look pretty sexy bud, I didn't see on there but how big are the rotors, if they are 14 inch they should be compatible with the brembo set up

yeah for the next couple years i am going to be staying with the stock 19 in brembo wheel set up and those have a fair amount of space between the wheels they also have a thick coat of zinc on them so rusty discs should be a thing of the past

You wouldn't run these with Brembo's. They replace calipers and every thing. They are to drop rolling weight. Help drop weight of car. More rolling weight you can drop the faster the car will be.

This is why people use lighter wheels such as skinnies up front with lighter in the rear as well, aluminum drive shafts, lighter flywheels. Its not all for strength.

Sprung V. Unsprung weight.
The lower you get in overall weight the more important. It's when weight starts to equal horsepower. Very important to a 420lb 150hp 1000cc sportbike.

You are also talking rolling resistance when you talk about skinnies up front.

Yes indeed.

I have my car down to about 3450lbs with me in it. I am 210lbs. Also what is better from looking at it you would never know it. Everything seems to be there. There is a lot of ways to drop weight and people could never tell.

Plan is to get the car down to about 3300 with me in it. And still have AC-heat and all the other luxuries.

Re: With a fast car you need excellent braking

you should do a back to back stop comparison. I am thinking the OEM rotors will stop better unless the new ones are much lighter

In my already light 95GTS I took the seats out pulled the carpet and removed the insulation and sound deadener. Same thing in the trunk. Eventually I removed all the liner in the trunk.

But around a track, you'll most likely get a lot less brake fade.

Rear rotors should be the same between brembo vs standard shouldn't they?

new brakes dont vent gas like old school back in the day systems did. Look at real track cars, look at what they run, most are flat rotors.

Slotted/drilled are very prone to crack and not hold up under stress if they were not molded but actually cut after made.

they look great, just part of it, not saying they wont work just that they wont be really any change over stock.

What kind of weight have you dropped?! That's ridiculous considering these things weigh like 3700lbs

Re: With a fast car you need excellent braking

rotating weight is VERY critical, every 1lb you drop of rotating mass (drive shaft, rotors, wheels) is about equal to 10lbs of dead weight thats why two piece rotors are very popular.

one guy on another forum got his 03 cobra coupe from 3670 down to 3100lbs had the fastest (10 second car) 03 cobra with a non ported blower I believe.

Actually a base model doesn't weigh that much. A base model is already under 3530lbs bone stock with less then 1/8 tank of gas. Now a convertible does.

But I have full suspension adds up fast the LCA's was about 2.2 lbs lighter each for example, Che bumper supports front and back total dropped was almost 40lbs, back seat delete, aluminum drive shaft, Weld RT-S rims 15x10/17x4, Full exhaust even dropped weight. My wheels alone was almost 80lbs lighter. Also took out the spare tire and jack. All foam behind bumpers. Lighter flywheel. Front sway bar delete(completely off) and lighter radiator support. Lighter hood. Some other little stuff. I weighed it last time at the track. SAR. I also had the Cat back off when weighed it. If remember right the precise weight was 3486 give or take a lb or two. Not sure where the picture of the scale is I took. This was before drive shaft and flywheel.

This is also with a full tank of gas. My shipping weight was 3456lbs.
