    FS: 356mm Rotor Ksport Big Brake kit $1500 inc NEW better rotors + Yellow stuff pads

    Just a heads up guys, I'm looking at moving to the 380mm Ksport 8 piston big brake kit, and to do this I need to sell my current kit, I'm after ~$1,500

    this includes Calipers + New Improved Rotors (these ones have considerably thicker walls) + new Pads + Braided SS brake lines.

    The Rotors + Pads have not been fitted, however if this kit does not sell in a few weeks I might put them in and see how she feels

    Comparing this kit to stock, I found that on a certain stretch of road the stock rotors + redstuff pads would start to fade after 2-3 hairpins, with this kit it never faded, has been awesome, the only issue I've had is that the stock rotors developed small cracks, upon speaking at length with Ksport they mentioned that this was due to the first batch of brake kits they did being of thin walled rotor (something like 6-7mm of meat) the current batch that they tell me they have no problems with and are better than the AP Racing rotors are actually 9-10mm of meat so I bought a new set of rotors (yet to be installed) and a new set of Yellow stuff brake pads (the next level up from Red stuff)

    from memory of when I swapped them the ksport actually had more clearance, I should have the diagram for clearance in a few hours (fingers crossed)

    If you want them orange it's just normal matt black which will come off with paint remover, if you know what I'm like I don't like shiny shit

    I guess I can apply some remover to a section to show you the colour underneath if the bits showing is not enough.

    Ok, I have pictures but I can't upload them at the site I'm at... Re Old Vs New Rotors

    both sets of rotors are 32mm wide, the old rotors have a 18.5mm wide cooling gap, the NEW ones have a 14mm wide cooling gap, so essentially the new rotors have an additional 2mm(9mm vs 7mm) of meat on each side, heaaaps better!

    Pics to come later tonight.

    Are you actually keen I.P.D? if so I'll get a quote, they will need to be 2 x separate parcels as the rotors are listed as 20kg alone)
