I'm sure they could do the same caliper to a wider spec without much difficulty. Wilwood isn't much interested in one-offs, though. You wouldn't believe how long we've been working on just plain red. As I said, we'd probably have to come up with an order for 50 sets.

We have done the CAD work to adapt the Powerlite (not the Dynalite) to use the typical 11" two-piece rotors on the rear. But we haven't made any, as the rear brakes just don't generate the heat that the front ones do.

keith, if you can put together a 2-piece 11" rotor with 4-pot powerlite calipers, and matching brackets, let me know, I would take it. I'll build a spot caliper onto the setup...

I'm moving up to r-comp's this year, have a bit heavier miata than most, and a lot of aero pushing down on the back, I want more rotor...

We'll look at the pricing of a small run of caliper brackets.

Okay, I have some pricing. The bracket is more complex than the other ones, so it's more expensive to produce even in quantity. We're looking at roughly an extra $100 for the bracket set over the standard ones.

Add in the price of the rotors, and we're looking at approximately $1000 for the rear-only kit. We'd have to do a group buy of a dozen or so to do that, a one-off would be around $100 more. Still interested? Anyone?

keith, thank you graciously for pricing that out,

v8roadsters quoted me just under $1,000 for their 11.75" rear kit, although i would like a smaller 11" rotor for extra clearance...

I'll be in touch, thanks again
