Ive seen them. No experience, but hope they have some kind of special rotor to take that kind of heat without warping.

Thx JJ.. I'm concern as well of the amount of heat two calipers might effect the rotor. Because the I think the kit doesn't include the rotor.

Have since 6/2012. Over 12k. Love em. Braking great. They look great. Nobody has them. Cons: if u have PM calipers, hv to machine spacers. But glad I did, gets lots of compliments and they work

Not that I know anything, but, the point of going single sided is to show off the wheel.......two calipers is only going to clutter and cover up the left side (and a bitch to clean up around the calipers) there's no braking problems with a single sided setup with a single 6-piston caliper

Doing homework is never a bad thing, but if it comes down to money......your gonna buy a single matching rotor anyway and selling the stock late model rotors and calipers will more than pay for a new HHI (or PM) 6 piston caliper, I usually get $400 for the brembo setups

13" cog drive or FULL floating rotor and a 6 piston caliper is my vote, tried and true setup in both looks and performance :thumbup:

Good ain't cheap, cheap ain't good.......

Depending on the wheel you choose.....if you ever do LOL....will dictate the type of rotor you can go with, if you go with a matching rotor. Cog drive takes the cake, and true full floating is a close second. My recommendation would be to stay away from the 1 piece stamped rotors

When it comes to brakes, you do get what you pay for

Food for thought if nothing less
