Get 1 of each. No one can see both sides of your car at the same time.

for all our calipers we are using car body paint with high strength lacquer. this is a proven solution- we've tried powder coating, but it didn't give us same quality surface finish. same time, when calipers work on extreme conditions and overheating, both paint options goes darker, same about original brembo factory paint.
our paint method gives us availability of choosing any colors customer want in the same price.

but, if you really want it, i can make powder coating. this will add 50-100$ to the price i think.

Surprised no one reviewed them yet...I kind of want to hear a review or two from this forum before pulling the trigger.

Late march? Big international parcels usually take about a month from experience. YMMV.

I got my brakes! They are really beautiful and well detailed. I'll be putting them on in the next couple of weekends.

The pads that Slon included are the R35 GT-R size. He included a set of Ferodo DZUnos for a price that was much better than I can get them in the US.

So far, other than the Russian postage, looks amazing.

They're on!

I tried to make them work with RacingBrake F80 rotors, but the RB rotors are 2mm thicker than stock, which meant I had pads that were too thick. I ran to the dealer and picked up some stock F80 M3 rotors and the system is on, bled, and bedded.

I went out and did some fun hill driving that previously overheated the stock brakes early and often. Nothing! Just solid, strong brakes! I need to find some good street pads to swap in for the winter (Nissan R35 GTR pads fit without Ti plates; C7 Corvette pads fit with the Ti plates.).

I did have to do a tiny bit of metal grinding to get the bracket to fit my hub. The bracket is a work of CNC art, but my hub had something like casting flash. I had to grind the casting flash flat and then a small amount of the bracket. Way less than the custom work I had to do on the Hard Motorsports brake cooling ket.

Pictures coming soon!

Is there any benefit to the F80 rotors that made you do that? I thought the E92 rotors were great enough that we can slap a set of rotors like slon's and call it a day.

My rotors were toast (they were the original rotors on the car). Nominally, there is no difference in price between F80 rotors and E9x rotors.

Slon provided me a modular bracket that could work for stock and F80 rotors, and so my plan involved mocking up the caliper as an F80, trying various wheels, and then heading out to buy a set of F80 rotors.

If you have new-ish E9X rotors, I think the braking will improve with the GT-R calipers. If you have the opportunity, I believe the F80 rotors are superior.

Any chance you’d sell me just the brackets? I own a powder coating shop and have the calipers sitting here already as we keep a good bit of them stocked for cores to swap people out who can’t wait the lead time.

You mind getting a closeup on how the pad sits in relation to the rotors? Wanted to check on the sweep area. Thanks.

Is there a way we could have 380 front and rear rotors with the 6pot/4pot calipers? That seems to be the Brembo spec for our cars.

Truly tried to melt them down yesterday. We drove our track without the normal chicane in the front straight. 20+ minutes of riding the antilocks 150 -> 65 on NT01Rs and no fade at all.

My experience with their performance with DSUno pads is excellent. Today I swapped out a set of Ferodo 2500 for the street. 10 minute pad swap.

Theres a 10mm section of the inside radius of the F80 rotors that is unswept. Im pretty sure that with a less common pad, this could be addressed (like an Enzo shape)... but the current situation is working very well for me.
