I already have a buyer lined up for my 11" M-Tuned Corrado front brake brackets

I am also wanting to know if they will work on the track over the 15x8 1st gen 6uls which is what I have now. If they do, and we can make this happen soon, say in the next month or two, I am in because I need to do something for the front.

The ultimate upgrade I lust for is the V8R kit but that is $2300 list. Right now the rears are doing fine on sport rotors and XP8s so I am not sure I 'need' the 4-corner upgrade.

I'd be down for the bracket if made.

Thanks Andrew.

Contemplating this if I can resell my current brackets and can source cheap replacement friction rings locally.

What's the estimated weight difference with these verse the 11" Wilwood rotor? It sounds nice getting more rotor for cheap but if this is at the expense of too much unsprung weight gain it might not be worthwhile?

The replacement friction ring for the Wilwood 11" kit is 7.9 lbm and the replacement friction ring for the 11.75" in question is 8.1 lbm. I'm gonna go ahead and say you don't need to worry about the extra .2 lbm.

Will you put together a full kit with the calipers and all if you do this? Or just the brackets? I'm still on stock brakes and may upgrade eventually.

Have you actually read this thread? In the very first post he says:

Lest the natives skin you alive before you read this, yes I can do a package deal. $1012 with calipers, lines, and hardware. You supply pads, either through me or someone else.

stock 1.8 rotors weigh ~10lbs so looks like roughly even swap to 11.75 rings. w/ iron calipers/mounts replaced with alum. sounds like win.

Hmm.. Tempted now. I've been holding off on piecing a brake setup together until next season but at ~1k that's a pretty damn good deal, especially when replacement rings are 30 bucks a pop.. Assuming you run this front setup, what would you gents recommend on the rear end to keep some semblance of brake balance? (1.8 non-sport stock rears)

Sport rotors with 1.8 calipers or sport calipers (M-Tuned makes a bracket to use the Sport rotor with a 1.8 caliper/bracket).

When I wear out my current 11" friction rings I may be interested in a set of your brackets if they are the right price and are anodised in hot pink.

very good deal. I still have a set of rotors to go through. I love the $30 replacement ring part.

I'll likely be interested in this... but down the road.
