If Stoptech doesn't use the "Outlaw" pad shape they're making a huge mistake.

You mean the 7112 plate?

I'd highly doubt they would. First the caliper shown has the bridge bolt to help stiffen it. That means at the least they'd need to do a 7812 plate for that. Secondly as a racing caliper (by the description how I interpret it) the 12mm thick pad would really surprise me. That's not their normal way of doing things- they'd take heat for under engineering it to that level. *But then if they were trying to be competitive at this level...dumbing it down could help too.

I'd suspect either a stock, smaller Porsche plate or one that is modified from that shape will be fit. Right now it looks more dedicated track than oe plate however with only the bridge bolt.

Wildo, with what you have in your engine and wheels alone I can somewhat guess your race budget. There is no reason to be chasing your tail with this. Copy Bob's setup exactly, it works.

Bob gave me a link to check if the Mini BBK will clear the rims:

Thanks for sharing Bob!
