Great color combo!

I never knew the reduction in rotational mass was that significant with the Brembo 380mm kit! That is HUGE weight savings per corner.

Thanks for sharing.

I know that most of the work is done by the front brakes, so my logic would suggest that by going with 345 mm rears as opposed to 380, you will be reducing the unsprung weight even further and saving some money without compromising braking performance too much.
Does that makes sense?
From my understanding the difference between 380 and 345mm is a pound or so. But I'm sure you are right.

I'm actually surprised that no one has really chimmed in about it. It makes teh car feel a lot lighter through cornering and faster acceleration.

Clean, bro. I actually love the stocks with the BBK. You should rock the 220's for a bit.
