I used 12mm spacers with the brembo 365 kit and all looked great until this happened:
Did wheel weights do that?

No. All wheel weights are accounted for and were taped down. It was a stray rock at sonoma raceway. I heard it grinding its way through the caliper for several seconds. See attachment for where it came out.

My point is that the 3mm minimum sometimes may just not be enough. This happened on my 3rd track event with these brakes.

Garage List
I am one of the folks that have run multiple high dollar setups and my top 3 in no particular order:

Project Mu

I ran these on my NSX and S2000 and M3. All currently have caliper kits for the E92 M3. With 18 inch TE37s I would probably run Endless. For OEM I would run Brembo.
