Yes.

Edit: and replacement friction rings are only $30 for the 11.75" kit, vs. the previously quoted $80 in the 11". Higher initial cost though, since you need to buy the $125 hat for the rotors (x2). Saves you weight though. Won't fit your 6ul's without a 5mm spacer though, so be prepared for that.

Buy our front 11.75 kit. Cheap rotors, big thermal capacity, cheap pads.

Hmm I guess that with a spacer, 6ul 15x9s, I would need to do a roll and mild pull?

On an NB, just a roll. No pull.

look at what you have now... hold a standard USB key (skinny way) to the edge of your tire at the closest point. that is 5mm.

For your first track year some cheap hawk pads on those sport brakes will be fine. Stop being the typical track wanna be douche building a super sled for your first fail boat year at hpde. Save your money and get a tire trailer for spare track wheels/tires/tent/food/etc and go to as many hpde events that you can.

For actual track use, step up to one of the DTC series pad (like DTC-60).

Wait, so the TSE 11.75'' kit needs a 5mm spacer for 6uls?? I was unaware of this.

The required 5mm spacer is included with the kit.

You didn't like it when I tried to lead you in that direction on page one.

That's erotic. If nothing unexpected happens I shall be placing an order for these glorious brakes this fall/winter.

Now that you mention it I see it in the included parts list.
