Would the masses prefer to use 01+ Sport Rotors, or the Corrado G60 rotors? I have someone to make the brackets.

Yeah... That is what my research has shown me. Do we have decent interest in brackets to fit the front with an RX7 Caliper with a Corrado G60 rotor? Like I said. I can get it done. The guy wanted to use my car this weekend to mock it up, but I am busy and need to locate some RX7 front calipers.

there is more than decent interest. You build it, they'll buy it. See how many views are in the COP conversion thread? over 33K, I'd expect the same.

yeah i'd say there would be a good market for an affordable brake setup, make sure they fit under popular wheels though

This would be hard. I only have 16" Volk TE37s for my car!

Done deal.. They are going to make brackets so you can use an RX7 Caliper and Corrado Rotor. My car will be going under the knife for this very soon.

I have a 99 and was planing on using the stock rotors. Is there any reason you can't? Guess I'll find out eventually unless there's a reason why it wouldn't work.

I was hoping it would work with stock rotors so this is a cheap upgrade. I got the calipers for 40. The brackets wouldn't cost **** to make. I'd sell the brackets for 20 bucks if I made them. It's just a piece of flat stock with 4 holes in it.

Any word yet on the brackets? I'd love to pick me up a pair for the front brakes. By the way, GREAT discussion thread.

To Quote, "IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME." I came, and now I am drooling to have me some 4 piston calipers tossed onto my 2000.

Ordering up a set of calipers tonight... if there arn't any brackets available by the time I get back from offshore I'll model some up and send them to my CNC shop for a "sample build".

Probably around $75-$85 for the brackets. There is quite a large investment for the company making them as they need to run 250 brackets at a time.

Still a great price in my mind.
