These are forged Aluminum from BBS Motorsport in Germany therefore FI.
What's the difference between the RI-D vs. F1? What's Duralumin?
I thought it was something out of Star Treck!!!

..
I was not precise enough. It is customized for GTS, so it will clear 380 Brembos :-)

The drop and stance is all business from a track and practically perspective. Pleasing aesthetics and looks always took a back seat and were never considered in the build. This is a street legal car that is totally trackable without compromise with the best of breed mods. The car is pure expression of aftermarket + OEM performance mods to the nth degree and was built to perform rather than please the eyes or pocketbooks.

The owner knows exactly what he is doing based on experience and knowledge.
Are you guys dating lol. Didn't mean to upset someone, especially not the owner. I'm sure Captain got a great deal on the cage or he wouldn't of bought it. I know I wouldn't. I have two eyes and built a few cars. I think all of us on this forum can appreciate this build for what it is.

I could undestand wanting to keep everything as much GTS as possible but you track the car. Which rotors cost more to replace?

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."

The GTS rotors are lighter and the rears have a stainless e-brake insert - Brembo is raw aluminium.
