I did the same thing ^^ and RB tells me they are coming up with a rear caliper kit, so no worries.

Great quality product. Well designed. Upon first test drives and the break In Procedures I was amazed by how hard these brakes grab. I had brembos on my z350 and the stopping power is compatible. Keep in mind more time is needed for a more precise evaluation. In regards to the company itself... Fast free Canadian shipping. They provided a great deal on the rear pads (free) and colour matched caliper paint to get me by until the rear caliper becomes available.
Ohh. It also does wonders for the car's appearance. Great job RB.

What is the drawback if you need to buy a set, both left and right anyhow?

The drawback is that many times one side can be backordered. With the RB setup, there is no left and right so as long as they have them, you're good no matter which needs replacing.
