Wasn't saying buy the kit from them, I was just merely pointing out it already had been done.

That is pretty much what I am going off of at this point just not sure what rotors they are using. I'm curious about the cobra rotors now.

They show spacers, but no brackets, so I am curious if they are bolting directly also. Not the hardest thing in the world to find rotors with specs to fit, but to have them readily and cheaply available is another animal.

I am going to look at Evo 10 rotors. They are 350mm in diameter. It will be a different spacing but nothing trying it can't hurt.

This gives me more reason to replace my calipers on my cts-v and just put the old ones on the galant

They're 100% Cobra rotors. Thing about using Evo X rotors is they will not fit under 17" wheels.

I tried the Evo X rotors out last night and they fit in a evo 8 enkeis. I will have to take a little off the outside (.100 or so) but they will work. It will bring the rotor to 13.6 or so but I will be able to get complete pad contact.

I mean with the caliper on. Well they didn't fit with the Evo X caliper when I tried it. If the CTSV caliper is a bit smaller and the rotor taken down some, you maybe able to squeeze them behind a 17" wheel. Hard to say.

I should have taken a picture of it last night. They caliper didn't quite bolt on it was like .03 to .04 of interference on the inside of the caliper. I will just chuck it up in the lathe and take some off the outside and it will fit. I am just waiting to get paid tomorrow so I can pick up a pair. It looks kinda of awesome it so much stuffed inside a 17" wheel. Look into it and all you see is rotor and caliper.

Any updates? I'm gonna try some cobra rotors and see how far off they are from fitting

I was able to cut the rotors last night and get the proper offset for the rotor.I had to cut the OD of the rotor to 13.400 and add a 4mm (.157) between the hub and the rotor. And it fits perfect with good clearance on a EVO 8 Enkei.

TurboDSM What I would do if you go with the Cobra rotors is get some washers that will fit over the studs and stack them up until you get the proper offset. Then let me know what that offset is. I can make some spacers for the Cobra rotors. 4mm might be the magic number but I would just make sure. Like Patches said 13" will work just fine with plenty of pad contact.





It was kind hard to get a picture of the offset but it even on both sides.

Will do. I have rears as well but I haven't had time to look and see if they will bolt on or need brackets. That will be the next challenge.

I know some people are trying to figure out a rear brake swap option that will have the parking brake included. I don't know if anyone as succeeded or not.

Evo 8/9 are out because the diameter is too small. Evo 10 will work with a little machining.

Looks like 9.64mm needs to be shaved off of the OD.

I was going to mod the stock ebrake handle/mount to a hydraulic master, so you can still lock the rear brakes like stock. Eliminates the shitty cable setup. I know it's "not legal" but when you get inspected all they care about is when the hand brake is applied the car doesn't move. I just need to find some brembo's for the rear and I'll probably go ahead with it.

Here's some pic's of what I am talking about.

If you have to make brackets to make the rear work, I would be interested in a set of them
