Default Upgraded Rotor Options

Set of free calipers landed in my hands and there a bit overkill but I'll make them work. We're going to be making the caliper brakets here at CCW and possibly the rotor hats if I need to change some geometery. At any case I hope we don't have to make the rotor hats but wanted to know what type of upgraded rotor options are out there? Single peice or 2pc

I currently have 1.6l rotors so I could upgrade to 1.8l rotors but don't think those are going to cut it at all expecially what we have to do in such a short distance. Need a larger diameter rotor.

You can always use the 10.6 OEM sport brake rotors,they are cheap & readily available.

Caliper braket. If the rotors only and 1" larger than stock there's not much distance to make what needs to be made.

Aren't VW Corrado rotors 11" and easily available at your FLAPS as well? I just looked at a Goodwin BBK last night, ******* $650 for a set of goddamn rotors that I'll still eat to **** with some race pads. :(

Thought I was reading something about that but was unsure. Wilwoods have to be the cheapset; I bought a whole dynalite big brake kit for my 02 civic when I had it and the two calipers, brakets, and 2pc rotors ran $550 shipped. So if I could get the the rotors from that kit or simular they have to be around $250 for both.

You have any idea what diameter the stock NA rotors are?

Yes they are! I'm finishing up the install tonight. Still needs to be tested - but ill post pics + instructions soon.

Basically I needed to fab up hubcentric rings to mount Corrodo rotors and adapter plates to move the factory 1.8 caliper up from centerline.

I may have under $100 into this.
