Slon-workshop: 6 piston Brembo custom brake kits. 360/380mm oem rotor setup.

In this topic i want to show you our own brake kits using Brembo components.



In our kits we are using only brand new calipers, which fits from factory on gm cars, like corvettes and camaros.
This calipers have lug mounts from the factory, so they can't be fitted on other cars with simple and beauty mounts, like other aftermarket calipers which have radial mounts.
So, we make our lug mount to radial modification for this calipers on our CNC milling machine, which guaranteed excellent result every time.

After modification done, all calipers goes thru sandblasting and then new respraying to any customers color choice.


At the end we are getting very beauty and usable calipers:

-Which have 190mm pads length - to understand calipers size, you can compare it for example with most competitors 6 pot calipers, which are smaller and have only 152mm long pads.
-One caliper weights only 3.3kg (7.25lbs) after mod done.
- This caliper uses very common pads form factor, so you can choose any pads height, you want for the best setup. You can take smaller height pads, 47mm or 57mm for 2 piece light weight rotors, like used in the kits. Or you can use 65mm pads, for excellent fit on oem m3 floating rotors. You can even take 76mm pads, for widest rotors, like 380mm rotors from f8x series.
- You can change pads without caliper removing- only center pin needs to be removed.
- Calipers have dust boots, so they work excellent even in everyday use.
- Overall pistons area very similar to most oem setups, so you don't get any problems when fitting them.




calipers before mod:

and after our work done:





For E8x and E9x cars we are making kits for using with oem 1m/m3 floating rotors 360mm. This rotors works very well, but only needs good caliper for the best result. This setup can be used in almost any 18 inch wheels for this setup.

You can also use 380mm floating rotor from f8x series, but you'll have 19 inch minimal rim size. You can fit this setup in 18 inch wheels, but with only some special rim models, like apex ec-7 for example.

Our kit consists from:
Pair of new calipers (in any color you choose)
Pair of lightweight brackets - made from aircraft aluminum and anodized in black.
Pair of braided brake hoses (goodridge components).


Base price for this kit - 1900$ incl worldwide ems delivery (courier to your door)
Shipping usually takes about 7-10 days to United States and up 5-7 days in Europe and UK.

(Please, check custom rules and duties in your country. We already shipped our items to US and Australia without any problems, but in some of the European countries were charged customs duties for our parts).

Optional we can offer titanium backplates, for people, who uses their cars on hardest conditions. This option is highly recommended on very powerful and heavy cars, like an f8x which uses on track.
With this titanium plates dust boots will lives a lot better (heavy conditions).
set of this plates adds 150$ to the base price.

More then 30 kits are done already for e8x, e9x and f8x series- some cars using on tracks, some on the streets. all of them works excellent.

I can offer two options:
One with beauty corvette caliper, which can work with wide pads, to cover rotor surface fully. But its not cheap, so set of new calipers with brackets and braided hoses will cost 1700$ (incl delivery).


Another one 4 pot brembo (smaller caliper) can use only 50mm pads, so some space on oem rotor will be unused.
this setup with brackets and hoses will cost 1200$.



Alternative option - we can make full kit with two-piece floating rotors, like brembo gt.

Just to clarify, on my E92 M3, I can use F8X rotors with your calipers?

Exacty mate

I can even made combo config, which will work on both rotors, if you want to have the ability to select between 360 and 380mm rotors.

In our country some people change brakes with winter wheels
